You prevent periodontal problems by protecting your gums from infection by oral bacteria. When bacteria are able to move below your gum line, they cause gingivitis, which will worsen without proper care and create more significant issues with periodontal disease. If you are already struggling with periodontal disease, your Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontist can provide beneficial services to protect you. One procedure that we offer is ozone therapy. Through this treatment, we are able to directly attach harmful bacteria while still protecting the microbes that help sustain your mouth’s healthy ecosystem. Ozone therapy relies on concentrations of oxygen available in both liquid and gas form.
Why Periodontal Disease Should Be Taken Seriously
Gingivitis is a concern, but one that can still be addressed before there are long-term threats to worry about. Through the appropriate preventive periodontal care, you can remove harmful bacteria buildup and allow your gums to heal. If too much time passes, however, the infection will worsen and require more involved care. One service we can offer at this point is ozone therapy, which enables us to directly attack harmful microbes and leave healthy bacteria alone.
Ozone Therapy Targets Harmful Bacteria Affecting Your Gum Line
The unwelcome anaerobic bacteria that cause periodontal disease are vulnerable to oxygen treatments that preserve healthy bacteria. By performing ozone therapy, we can use concentrated oxygen to fight the microbes spreading below your gum line that negatively affect your well-being. By using this procedure, we can fight your infection with a method that is more holistic and less invasive!
Other Services That Help You Fight Periodontal Problems
Problems with tooth loss and general health complications affect people who develop periodontal disease. Because there are serious consequences associated with an infection, it is important that you seek treatment if you think it affects you! After performing a diagnostic review to see how serious your infection has become, we can discuss your treatment options. When appropriate, we can recommend laser periodontal services to remove infected tissues and the bacteria that have accumulated on the roots of teeth below your gum line. If you have already experienced issues with tooth loss because of your infection, we can talk with you about implant dentistry. With an implant-held restoration, your full smile and bite function can be restored!
