The problems that affect your periodontal health can become more severe than you might expect. This is particularly true when the condition is not being managed properly; fortunately, you can avoid these difficulties by meeting with a periodontist. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we can work with patients who are trying to prevent complications with their health, and we can serve the needs of individuals who are concerned about problems that already affect them. Those problems include issues like gum line recession and tooth loss, which can significantly impact your appearance and cause problems for your well-being.
Your Periodontal Health Can Negatively Affect How You Look
Problems with gum disease can take a toll on your health, and for this reason alone they should not be taken lightly. With that said, you can be understandably worried about the negative impact of a condition on the way you look. Once you start to deal with gum line recession and tissue damage, it can be difficult to hide the impact of your infection on your smile. You can also experience growing worries about the threat of tooth loss, something that those with periodontal disease need to take seriously. We provide treatments to help individuals who already struggle with these problems, and we can help you regain confidence in your appearance.
Addressing Gum Line Recession With A Conservative Laser Treatment
Gum line recession is not just a cosmetic problem. The exposure of teeth roots can lead to more problems with dental sensitivity, and your gums can become more difficult to protect against an infection. With that said, it is understandable that patients would be concerned about the effect of this issue on the way they look, as it can throw off the symmetry of your smile and make teeth look too long. Through a conservative grafting treatment that relies on the Pinhole Surgical Technique, we can restore your gum line and improve your appearance.
Planning The Restoration Of Your Full Smile Through Dental Implant Placement
Unfortunately, people who struggle with gum disease may not receive the right treatment in time to prevent tooth loss. If you are someone who has lost teeth due to their infection, we can meet with you to discuss dental implant placement. We can even take on problems with unhealthy tissues and jawbone deterioration that might stand between you and work to replace missing teeth.
