Effectively Diagnosing Periodontal Trouble

It can be alarming to hear that your gums are not healthy. With that said, when you receive a diagnosis about your periodontal well-being, you know what you are up against, and you can learn what your treatment options include. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we will rely on a thorough diagnostic review to determine what state your gums are in so that we can recommend the right services. As we proceed with care, we can look for ways to both resolve active problems and control the threat of future difficulties, which lowers your risk for the complications that we associate with infection.

How The Right Diagnosis Leads To Effective Treatment

Through the use of the right imaging technology, we have the means of closely studying what impact your periodontal disease has had on your smile. The bacteria that cause problems for your gums can affect you in ways that may surprise you. For example, when the problem is not managed, bacteria can eventually start to affect other areas of your body by traveling through your bloodstream. These harmful microbes can also create problems by damaging the tissues that hold teeth in place, which is why people impacted by periodontal disease can eventually suffer tooth loss.

Is There Still Time For Preventive Care?

A timely review can determine if preventive periodontal services are still capable of stopping further difficulties from affecting your health. Through both scaling and root planing and Supportive Periodontal Maintenance, we can fight the accumulation of bacteria on teeth roots so that they no longer interfere with your quality of life and well-being. Supportive Periodontal Maintenance arranged after more involved services can help you by controlling your future risk for problems.

Arranging More Advanced Services

There are more advanced periodontal services that we are prepared to offer to patients experiencing periodontal disease. In fact, we can actually use laser technology to fight periodontal problems more effectively, as we can provide more conservative care and easier recovery periods after treatments. In addition to this kind of care, we can discuss the effect of holistic services like ozone therapy and PRP therapy.
