There are more severe consequences to not treating gum disease properly than you might anticipate. In time, an infection can cause alarming damage to the surrounding gums and hard tissues, your risk for tooth loss can increase, and you can experience new health troubles as bacteria spread beyond the roots of teeth by entering your bloodstream. There are different solutions to the problems your condition may have caused. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we can help you understand what your current needs are, and we can recommend advanced services to help. This includes holistic treatment options such as PRP therapy, which uses platelet-rich plasma to speed up the natural growth and recovery processes in areas that have suffered harm.
Periodontal Disease Can Cause Worrying Tissue Damage
As bacteria spread on the roots of your teeth, the periodontal pockets caused by your infection can deepen. Tissue damage that occurs can reduce the support your teeth have, leading to a greater risk for tooth loss. In addition to controlling the spread of harmful microbes that affect your periodontal health, it can be important to provide services that address the harm that has already taken place. PRP therapy relies on platelets, which facilitate physical recovery, to hasten your healing. With the application of platelet-rich plasma, we can provide a faster recovery.
Using PRP Therapy To Encourage Recovery
Concentrations of platelet-rich plasma can be used to help with recovery in different situations. For people with gum disease, it can help with the faster restoration of periodontal tissues that are in poor condition. This process stimulates recovery with materials that are natural for the healing process. Providing holistic care is one of many ways in which our practice takes care to provide better experiences for patients.
Recovery times also matter when it comes to dental implant placement. To encourage faster recovery after your placement procedure, we can provide PRF therapy, which uses a platelet-rich fibrin matrix to assist in jawbone healing.
Ozone Therapy Provides Another Holistic Treatment Option
PRP therapy is not the only holistic service we can provide. Ozone therapy uses concentrations of oxygen in liquid or gas form to target harmful microbes on the roots of teeth. By using oxygen in treatment, we can remove these unwelcome bacteria without jeopardizing the healthy microbes that are part of the mouth’s natural ecosystem.
