3 Treatment Strategies For Gum Disease

How can you see to it that you are safe from complications linked to gum disease? If a problem with gingivitis is not caught in time, an infection can have serious consequences. Fortunately, whether you need preventive care to avoid these issues or need help managing them, your Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontist can provide the appropriate support. After a diagnostic review tells us what you might need from periodontal services, we can discuss treatment to stop complications from an infection from having a serious impact on your well-being!

1. We Can Provide Timely Preventive Care To Help You Avoid Complications With Periodontal Disease

If a problem with your periodontal health is identified in time, treatment can take place before you have to worry about deeper periodontal pockets and more tissue damage. After a diagnostic review of your gums, we can see if there is still time to move forward with preventive care in the form of scaling and root planing, which directly removes bacteria from the roots of teeth. We can also talk to about the advantages of starting supportive periodontal maintenance. For people who have a history of difficulty with their periodontal health, these services can replace traditional teeth cleanings to help avoid new difficulties.

2. We Can Rely On Laser Tools To Perform Advanced Periodontal Care

By using laser technology to take care of someone affected by periodontal disease, we can make an important service more precise and comfortable. Through the LANAP (laser-assisted new attachment procedure) protocol, bacteria are removed and unhealthy tissues are cleared away so that healthy tissues will grow. By taking on harmful microbes and encouraging new growth with laser tools instead of manual ones, we can make this process more comfortable while also offering a shorter and easier recovery!

3. We Can Use Holistic Treatment Approaches To Address The Harm From Your Infection

With holistic treatment options like ozone therapy and PRP therapy, we can make important services feel accessible and even more comfortable for patients to undergo!

  • Ozone therapy provides the means for us to directly fight harmful bacteria while preserving the healthy microbes that help sustain your mouth’s natural ecosystem. The use of concentrated oxygen can fight an active infection and stop harmful bacteria from creating new problems.
  • Through platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy, we can naturally stimulate your healing processes, which can lead to faster recovery against the harm done by periodontal disease.
