Gauging The Severity Of Your Gum Disease

If you think something might be wrong with your gums, how concerned should you be? You should take matters of poor periodontal health seriously, though you should know that a problem can have fewer consequences when it is caught and addressed in a timely manner. To find out just how serious the matter might be, you can talk to your Encinitas/San Diego, CA area periodontist. A diagnostic review of your gums can assess the different effects of an infection to see just how advanced yours has become. We can determine if you are a good candidate for preventive services, or we can see if you require more involved care from an advanced treatment.

Problems With Your Periodontal Health Can Be More Consequential Than You Realize

Poor periodontal health can have significant consequences that worsen over time. The longer it takes you to do something about the warning signs of an infection, the more likely you are to need care that is more involved to protect against its effects. People who suffer from advanced gum disease can require continued support to prevent issues like tooth loss and the spread of harmful microbes to other parts of the body. While our practice can make involved care more comfortable thanks to laser technology and other factors, we are also committed to helping patients avoid the kinds of complications with their health that might make these services necessary.

How Diagnostic Imaging Helps Us Approach Treatment

With the right evaluation, we can determine what kind of problems you have with periodontal disease, and what kind of care might be beneficial in treating you. Our diagnostic imaging technology helps us perform detailed reviews so that we can assess what you might require from us. From what we see, we can determine if a preventive scaling and root planing is what benefits you, or we can determine if you might require regular care through supportive periodontal maintenance.

Advanced Services For A Serious Infection Are Available

If you have a more advanced problem with periodontal disease, we can take on areas where the condition is a cause for concern. Our use of laser technology during periodontal services can make you more comfortable during care, and we can provide an easier recovery experience. We also provide holistic services that can use concentrated oxygen and even the body’s platelets to offer a more natural approach to care.
