Have You Underestimated Gum Disease?

Does something like gum disease really need to make you worry about your health? There are serious complications associated with this condition, making its treatment more important than you may suspect. Not managing it can result in problems with tooth loss, as tissue damage stemming from the infection will occur. Another worry is that bacteria that move from the roots of your teeth to different parts of your body by entering your bloodstream will become an issue for your general health, as they can create new and potentially serious trouble. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we can offer important care to help you protect yourself against these gum disease threats. We can also offer timely intervention with preventive services that remove bacteria and give tissues the opportunity to heal!

Gum Disease Can Cause Serious Complications For Your Health

If it is not being treated as a serious matter, gum disease can become a more significant problem than many people can anticipate. What this ultimately means is that you can struggle with problems like tooth loss over time, as tissue damage worsens, and you can even deal with worries over your general health due to complications from your infection. Starting with a diagnostic review, Dr. Kania can provide detailed information on the kinds of services that are available to you to manage this problem.

Managing Your Periodontal Problems

By using imaging technology to closely study your gums and the severity of poor periodontal health, your periodontist can determine what kind of support you need to address your condition. Your care can include work with advanced laser tools that precisely treat bacteria and unhealthy gum tissues. We can also take a holistic treatment approach, as we offer both ozone therapy and platelet-rich plasma therapy to help manage problems.

Using Preventive Services To Avoid Health Complications

With timely detection and treatment, more serious troubles with your gums can be prevented. Preventive care can come in the form of scaling and root planing, which can treat problems with an infection by directly fighting bacteria on teeth roots. Another option is to start supportive periodontal maintenance, which can provide consistent care to prevent future problems with gum disease when you have struggled to maintain periodontal health.
