Advantages To Periodontal Laser Treatment

When you are affected by periodontal disease, it is important that you take the management of the condition seriously. Without the appropriate support, bacteria can destroy the tissues that support teeth, and they can move through your bloodstream to create new problems in other parts of your body. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we can recommend different treatments that address more advanced cases of gum disease. Through the use of lasers, we can make these treatments more conservative, and we can make your recovery time shorter and easier!

Understanding Pinhole Gum Grafting

There are many unwelcome changes that can occur when you have periodontal disease.

For some patients, jawbone density will be a concern before treatment, one that calls for additional care. Fortunately, our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice can make this support available. With our advanced laser tools, we can even make the process of jawbone grafting less invasive, leading to easier procedures and recovery times! (more…)
