Encouraging The Growth Of Healthy Gum Tissues

Periodontal disease is a harmful condition that can seriously impact your appearance, and your general health. When a person lets periodontal problems go unaddressed, the damage that occurs to the tissues supporting their teeth can result in tooth loss over time. Poorly managed gum health can also result in problems that make it harder for you to maintain your overall well-being. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we offer an approach to care that focuses on helping you restore your health. One of our services that can help you is PRP therapy. This treatment encourages new growth of healthy gum tissues, which can help you avoid the health complications that can stem from periodontal disease. (more…)
