How PRP Therapy Helps You Deal With Periodontal Disease

What symptoms of gum disease are you familiar with? Many people can identify common symptoms of gingivitis like bleeding gums, problems with tissue sensitivity, bad breath, or gum line recession. However, they can be less familiar with the more serious consequences that can occur when periodontal disease affects you. When gum disease worsens and creates complications, patients can encounter problems like tooth loss, as well as more difficulties managing certain health conditions, like diabetes. The destruction of your periodontal tissues is also an issue associated with periodontal disease. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we provide different treatment options to address the impacts of advanced gum disease. One treatment we offer is PRP therapy, which uses platelet rich plasma to stimulate the growth of healthy gum tissues.

Periodontal Disease Can Cause Worrying Tissue Damage

Tissue damage is one of several consequences of problems with periodontal disease. As the disease continues to affect you, it can do considerable harm to your gum tissues, which can affect your well-being and make treatment necessary. If this is not addressed, the damage can worsen. Fortunately, we can provide a treatment that relies on platelet rich plasma to encourage healthy and natural tissue growth!

Using PRP Therapy To Encourage Natural Tissue Growth

Rather than try to stimulate tissue growth with artificial treatments, PRP therapy relies on platelet rich plasma to encourage natural recovery. Platelets are used in repairs and recovery of tissues throughout our body. By using plasma that has a higher concentration of these cells, we can help you recover faster from problems. For people who are recovering from dental implant placement, platelet rich fibrin therapy can encourage faster recovery, which means your full smile can be restored in less time.

Other Services We Are Prepared To Offer When Periodontal Disease Affects You

There are several services we rely on to help our patients deal with the effects of periodontal disease. Laser periodontal services use lasers to both clear away harmful bacteria and take care of infected tissues. The removal of infected tissues can start the healing process, which will see your body grow back healthy tissues. To directly combat bacteria concentrated beneath your gum line, we do offer ozone therapy, which relies on oxygen to take care of harmful microbes while preserving healthy bacteria.
