3 Procedures That Fight Periodontal Disease

Are you aware of just how serious a problem with periodontal disease can become? People who lack awareness of this threat can fail to recognize just how difficult it can be to manage a severe infection, and the different ways in which it can harm them. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, there are several services that we can provide in response to signs of periodontal disease. We can focus on holistic procedures that take a holistic approach, or – when necessary – recommend more advanced services to fight the harmful microbes hurting your oral and overall health.

1. We Can Remove Bacteria And Diseased Tissues With Laser Technology

If advanced periodontal disease is not addressed properly, it can take a serious toll on your smile, and it can put your general health in jeopardy. Other problems that impact your well-being, like diabetes, can become harder for you to manage if you have gum disease. You can also face a higher risk from heart disease because of your infection! Another concern is tooth loss, as bacteria can destroy the tissues that are holding teeth in place. To protect you against these potentially severe consequences, we may recommend laser periodontal services. With our LANAP laser or the REPAIR WaterLase laser, we can carefully remove diseased gums and destroy the bacteria that are responsible for your infection.

2. Ozone Therapy Can Destroy Harmful Microbes Attacking Your Gums

We can fight harmful periodontal bacteria without affecting helpful bacteria that support your mouth’s ecosystem through the use of oxygen. Ozone therapy can apply oxygen directly in liquid or gas form to remove the microbes that are causing difficulties for your well-being. This can help control an infection while sustaining the right oral ecosystem, and it preserves your tissues.

3. PRP Therapy Can Help You Recover From The Damage Done By Bacteria

Through PRP therapy, we can tend to a potentially serious problem connected to periodontal disease – tissue damage. This procedure relies on platelet-rich plasma to speed up healthy, natural growth processes. For patients who are undergoing work to restore their full smile after tooth loss, we may recommend PRF therapy to hasten the recovery of jawbone tissues after implant placement so that you can complete work to replace missing teeth with dental implant-held restorations.
