Several factors can affect how confident a person is in their smile. The presence or absence of teeth stains, chips and cracks, and evidence of poor dental alignment can all impact how comfortable someone is with the way they look. You should know that your periodontal health can also play an important part in helping you maintain confidence in your smile. If you struggle with periodontal disease, you are more likely to experience problems with swollen tissues and changes in your gum line. Over time, you also have to worry about your infection causing tooth loss! Our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice can help you keep your gums healthy and avoid these concerns. In addition to providing services to fight active infections, we offer preventive periodontal care to stop gingivitis from growing more severe.
A Confident Smile Can Boost Your Confidence
Even if you are not able to show it off as often as you might like, your smile can be an important source of confidence. While people often focus on the connection between healthy teeth and a lovely smile, the condition of your gums is also something that should concern you. A receding gum line is just one of several issues connected to your periodontal health that can make you reluctant to show off your smile. If you are already dealing with the advanced effects of an infection, we can provide services like ozone therapy and PRP therapy to help you feel more comfortable. We also provide laser-assisted gum grafting procedures that can give you back your proper gum line.
How Poor Periodontal Health Affects The Way You Look
Gum tissues can recede over time if you are struggling with poor periodontal health. This problem, along with the destruction of tissues that support teeth, can leave teeth looking long and exposed. In addition to being a cosmetic problem, these changes can lead to more issues with dental sensitivity. If the infection is not addressed, the continued damage to your tissues can actually lead to tooth loss, as teeth will no longer have the support they need to stay secure!
We Can Use Diagnostic Imaging Tools To Closely Examine Your Gums
Through diagnostic imaging technology, we can determine how severe a periodontal infection is and recommend treatment. If periodontal disease is already affecting you, we can move from diagnosing the problem to planning treatment. If we catch the infection before gingivitis has turned into a case of periodontal disease, we can perform a scaling and root planing procedure to remove bacteria before your condition worsens.
