We offer multiple laser treatments to help protect your periodontal health, so you don’t suffer from uncomfortable symptoms or missing teeth. In addition to the LANAP system we discussed in our last blog, your Encinitas/San Diego, CA, periodontist can also offer improved oral health with the REPAIR system.
REPAIR Waterlase Technology
A dental laser employs a concentrated beam of light that is calibrated to handle soft tissue concerns with precision and ease. With the REPAIR system, we also combine this with Erbium Waterlase technology. Along with the laser, a gentle stream of water is also provided that helps protect the tissues and prevent damage to healthy ones, providing care with greater precision when treating periodontal disease. Patients stay comfortable during treatment and don’t need anesthesia in many cases!
When to Seek Treatment
This laser-assisted system is employed to treat more advanced cases of periodontal disease, such as periodontitis. Care at this stage helps manage the disease so you avoid tooth loss and moving forward, routine cleanings and better homecare habits can help keep the disease in a manageable state, with less discomfort. Warning signs of trouble often include changes to your gum tissues, such as redness, soreness, bleeding, or even recession or swelling. When you or your dentist notice these harmful changes, we recommend a visit so we can conduct a diagnosis with advanced technology, assessing your risk and selecting the best treatment option.
Preventing Tooth Loss
By treating our gums, which frame and support your smile, you avoid the number one cause of tooth loss, so you can enjoy a complete smile moving forward. The technology provides a number of benefits. The improved precision and accuracy safeguards healthy tissues, and you rarely need anesthesia. The procedure cauterizes the area and the waterlase soothes it, so you avoid swelling, bleeding, and have a lowered risk of infection. The area often heals quickly, and you can return to normal activities after a day. This laser-assisted technology is tailored for your smile specifically, offering quality treatment.
If you have any questions about how we use the REPAIR system to help you enjoy healthy and strong gums, and keep the disease successfully managed, then contact our team today to learn more. We look forward to heling you maintain a whole and healthy smile with the latest treatment options!
