If you have unresolved issues with periodontal disease, the impact it has on your health can go beyond your mouth. Problems with bacteria that gather and move through your bloodstream can affect other areas, affecting your risk for heart disease and other issues. You can also have a more difficult time managing any other conditions you currently deal with. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we can recommend services that help you bring a potentially severe infection under control. One option is to undergo laser periodontal treatment. During this procedure, we use lasers to carefully remove diseased gums and the bacteria on the roots of teeth. This gives you a chance to heal and restore healthy tissues, and it will also provide a measure of control for the spread of harmful microbes.
Are You Currently Struggling With Periodontal Disease?
Gingivitis, the first stage of a periodontal infection, can be reversed, which can stop complications from arising that put your smile and health at risk. However, if it is not managed in time, there are difficulties with periodontal disease that should not be ignored. You may experience worsening issues with tooth loss as harmful microbes on the roots of your teeth destroy the tissues that support them. You can also have problems with your general health due to the movement of bacteria into your bloodstream. Managing this issue can call for care from a specialist. Our treatment options include services like laser periodontal care, which can directly remove unhealthy tissues as well as microbes under your gums.
Using Lasers To Fight Your Infection
Through either the use of our LANAP laser or our REPAIR WaterLase laser, we have the ability to fight periodontal disease and help you manage your overall health. With these tools, we can carefully access the roots of your teeth while preserving more of your healthy tissues. We will remove both diseased portions of your gums and the bacteria responsible for your infection. Because lasers offer more precision and limit bleeding, you can complete treatment without the need for suturing! This leads to a shorter and easier recovery after care.
We Have Diagnostic Tools To Help Us Understand Your Condition
Unsure of how serious your problems with gum disease might be? Thanks to our diagnostic imaging tools, we can help you determine what kind of care you require. Digital imaging can help us determine if you are still in a stage where preventive care can help, or if something more involved is called for.
