How PRP Therapy Helps Fight Periodontal Tissue Damage

man with healthy teeth and gums smilingA person who develops periodontal disease can have several issues to contend with as they try to preserve their health. One problem with periodontal disease is the potential for bacteria traveling to different parts of your body and creating new health problems. Another is the damage it can cause to your gums, as well as to the jawbone tissues that are keeping teeth in place. The impact of this destruction is serious enough to cause tooth loss! At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we offer different solutions for people who are trying to prevent or manage the effects of this disease. Through PRP therapy, we are able to encourage the healthy growth of damaged tissues and repair the harm that has occurred since your infection formed.

Periodontal Disease Destroys Tissues That Support Teeth

Tooth loss is a serious oral health issue, one that can greatly impact a person’s smile and dental health. If you have periodontal disease, it can be difficult to avoid tooth loss because you are vulnerable to the destruction of tissues. As those tissues become damaged, you lose support for teeth. Many people will need to have tooth extractions arranged for loose teeth.

Using PRP Therapy To Encourage The Growth Of Healthy Tissues

In addition to fighting bacteria with cleanings that focus on what is happening below your gum line, we are able to help patients recover with PRP therapy. Through this therapy, platelet rich plasma is administered as a means of encouraging your body to heal from past destruction. The platelets delivered by our bloodstream naturally aid in tissue recovery. Through PRP therapy, we rely on natural growth factors to help you heal, which can help you maintain healthier gums.

Other Solutions For Problems Caused By Periodontal Disease

In addition to destroying the tissues that support teeth, problems with gum disease can cause your gum line to recede. When this occurs, it can affect your appearance as well as your ability to maintain your periodontal health. Through the Pinhole Surgical Technique, we can actually provide a less invasive approach to gum grafting that restores your gum line.

Because the growth and spread of periodontal bacteria makes it difficult to control the effects of infection, attacking those harmful microbes is important for treatment. In addition to carefully cleaning teeth below the gum line, we can use ozone therapy to take out the anaerobic bacteria attacking your periodontal tissues. This solution leaves healthy bacteria alone, so your treatment does not disturb your mouth’s ecosystem.
