Learn More About Our Less Invasive Gum Grafting Treatment

A gum grafting treatment is often part of a patient’s recovery from the effects of periodontal disease. Over time, periodontal tissues can recede and expose more of your tooth structure as you combat an infection. This creates more than just a cosmetic problem, as the exposed teeth roots are naturally more sensitive and less protected. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we use an approach known as the Pinhole Surgical Technique to make restoring your gum line feel less invasive. This technique requires less work on your tissues, and removes the need for suturing to help with recovery. In addition to being less involved, this approach shortens healing periods and provides cosmetic benefits in less time! (more…)

Removing Periodontal Bacteria With Laser Tools

Fighting oral bacteria on a daily basis will protect you against the movement of harmful microbes below your gum line. When those bacteria do make their way down to the roots of your teeth, they cause troubling infections that can ultimately affect your appearance and general health in ways that can surprise you. For example, someone who develops problems with periodontal disease can struggle to manage problems with diabetes! Advanced periodontal problems also threaten your dental health directly by destroying the tissues that keep teeth in place. With this information, you can understand why successfully managing an infection benefits you. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we can perform work with laser tools to carefully access and remove the bacteria on your teeth roots. In addition to clearing away unwelcome microbes, treatment will encourage the new growth of healthy, uninfected tissues! (more…)

3 Benefits To Using Lasers During Periodontal Services

Problems with periodontal disease should not be taken lightly. Without proper management, the bacteria that are spreading below your gum line can destroy tissues that support your teeth, and they can also create new issues for your well-being by spreading to different areas of your body. The work to address a serious infection can sometimes demand work that directly affects your periodontal tissues. Fortunately, this work can be made less invasive, and more comfortable, when laser technology is used instead of manual tools. Our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice relies on lasers during many procedures that we perform. Because of this, we can provide better experiences in the office as well as easier recovery periods for patients! (more…)

How Lasers Help With Efforts To Fight Advanced Gum Disease

People who develop problems with advanced gum disease can be surprised by the degree of trouble their infection can cause.

Taking on periodontal disease properly can be difficult at a general dentist’s office, but a periodontist can provide more involved services to maintain your health! At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, patients in need of our services can find that laser technology can make treatments for unhealthy periodontal tissues more accurate and comfortable.

The Connection Between Laser Treatment And Patient Comfort
