Using Lasers To Access And Clean Teeth Roots

The buildup of bacteria on the roots of your teeth can lead to serious problems. When harmful microbes have recently made their way under your gum line, you can undergo scaling and root planing to remove them and stop further problems with your periodontal health. However, when these bacteria continue to spread and multiply, you can experience more serious consequences from an infection, and that can mean a more involved procedure needs to take place to manage your well-being. To make important services more precise and comfortable for patients, our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice can use laser technology during treatments. In addition to having benefits during your procedure, the choice to use lasers when fighting microbes that cause periodontal disease can mean a shorter and easier recovery. (more…)
