Serious issues with periodontal disease can take their toll on your oral and general health in ways that may surprise you. Did you know that an advanced infection can make certain conditions, like diabetes, more difficult to manage? Did you know that unresolved issues with periodontal disease can make you more vulnerable to potential heart troubles? While the effects of periodontal disease can be alarming, you should know that advanced services are available to help you fight this condition. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we rely on laser technology to address patients’ periodontal health issues. With laser tools, we can carefully remove unhealthy tissues and directly fight bacteria. One advantage to this technology is its ability to shorten your healing time after treatment, which means you can enjoy the benefits of a procedure in less time than you expect!
How Laser Technology Benefits Patients
Laser technology offers many advantages when it comes to fighting periodontal disease. By using lasers instead of manual tools, it becomes easier to protect healthy tissues. We also reduce bleeding and remove the need for suturing. Because work with lasers is more precise, and because there is less risk of damage to healthy tissues, patients can recover in less time when they go through laser periodontal care instead of treatment with a scalpel.
Fighting Periodontal Disease With Laser Treatment
With the LANAP protocol, or with our REPAIR WaterLase laser, we can carefully fight harmful bacteria and remove infected tissues in order to fight severe gum disease. These tools let us carefully reveal areas where bacteria have caused infections so that we can clear deposits, and they allow us to carefully remove infected tissues in order to encourage your body to heal and replace them with healthy gums.
Other Services We Provide To Fight Periodontal Disease
Laser treatment is one of several procedures we provide to those who want to protect themselves against periodontal disease. Treatment with ozone therapy directly targets harmful microbes but will leave the healthy bacteria in your mouth untouched. This better preserves your mouth’s natural ecosystem even as it destroys bacteria responsible for your infection. To fight gum line recession caused by periodontal disease, we rely on the Pinhole Surgical technique to make gum grafting treatment less invasive.
