Jawbone Grafting Before Implant Placement

The work to restore your smile and health in response to periodontal disease can sometimes call for treatment to address tooth loss. Over time, bacteria can destroy the tissues that help keep your teeth in place, leading to losses that hurt your smile and dental function. While dental implants can provide important support for prosthetic appliances, patients are not always ready to undergo treatment to have them placed. Jawbone deterioration will occur over time after you lose teeth. To address this, our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice can recommend a jawbone grafting procedure. Using lasers to perform this treatment benefits you because it provides a less invasive treatment experience, and these tools shorten recovery times! (more…)

Removing Unhealthy Tissues With Lasers

The work needed to address periodontal problems will vary between patients. After all, an infection’s impact on your gums and your overall well-being will change over time if you do not take action and address this matter. When prompt care is delivered, scaling and root planing can remove bacteria before there are complications that require more involved services. However, for someone who does not receive treatment in time, the right procedure may call for the careful removal of diseased gums and ligaments to facilitate a better recovery. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we can determine if this approach is necessary for you. If it is, we can use laser tools to more carefully remove tissues and bacteria to address your condition! (more…)
