How Lasers Help Fight Periodontal Problems

If you have problems with periodontal disease, you can face more threats to your overall well-being than you realize. The bacteria that are present below your gum line can damage tissues and cause tooth loss. These microbes can also create problems elsewhere in your body when they travel through your bloodstream. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we can offer helpful treatment options, including advanced care with laser technology. Lasers improve the patient experience with treatment for advanced gum disease. These tools offer more precise care, and they can shorten your recovery period after treatment.

Your Periodontal Health Can Be More Important Than You Realize

Have you overlooked the overall importance of your periodontal health? Unfortunately, some people fail to realize how much trouble gum disease can cause until they need the help of a specialist to manage it. Without the right support, tissue damage from your infection can cause you to lose teeth, and the movement of bacteria that cause inflammation to other parts of your body can create new health concerns for you. The good news is that an infection can be effectively treated to protect you against these threats. For people who need help controlling periodontal disease, we can recommend laser treatment to both remove harmful bacteria and tend to unhealthy tissues so that healthy recovery can occur.

Arranging Your LANAP Periodontal Treatment

Through LANAP laser treatment, we can take care of your gums by both removing unhealthy tissues and harmful microbes on the roots of your teeth. Lasers make it easier for us to target affected areas while leaving healthy gums untouched. They also minimize bleeding and reduce tissue damage, which means there is no need for suturing to help with your recovery.

LANAP laser treatment is not your only option for laser care. We can also use the REPAIR WaterLaser laser tool to provide these services. Having more options helps us personalize treatment and provide a better experience for patients!

Other Services That Help Manage Your Periodontal Health

There are different strategies we can employ when we need to help patients dealing with different degrees of poor periodontal health. If we are able to take care of you in time, we can recommend preventive periodontal services, including a scaling and root planing to remove bacteria before your condition progresses to a more advanced state. We can also recommend holistic treatment options that rely on concentrated oxygen and platelet-rich plasma.
