Is It Too Late To Prevent Gum Disease?

With your regular oral hygiene routine, you can fight bacteria that gather at the base of your teeth and threaten your periodontal health. Between your daily efforts and your general dental appointments, you can control your risk for gingivitis, and you can make yourself less likely to have problems with complications from more advanced gum disease. An advanced infection, also known as periodontal disease, can carry serious consequences. If you have fallen behind on preventive care and worry about the state of your gums, you may fear that you already have serious problems with your health. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we can provide a detailed evaluation of your periodontal health, and we can discuss services that both help to prevent complications and manage more serious problems.

Why You Should Look For Early Warning Signs Of Gum Disease

The sooner your can identify problems with your gums, the sooner you can make sure that you have the appropriate care. An appointment with a periodontist can help you evaluate your options if the issue has already progressed to the stage of periodontal disease. We can discuss the management of an infection with ongoing cleanings, or we can discuss more involved services, including care with laser technology, to address harm that has already occurred.

A Diagnostic Review Can Give You Important Feedback About Your Oral Health

With diagnostic imaging technology, we are able to provide helpful information regarding the state of your gums. If there is still time to do so, we can recommend a scaling and root planing to remove bacteria buildup responsible for gingivitis. This can stop an infection from growing more serious and requiring more involved care. If tissue recession and damage point to periodontal disease, ongoing cleanings provided at our office can help you avoid complications that make you vulnerable to tooth loss and other problems.

What We Can Do To Help You Manage A More Advanced Infection

So what will happen if you have more concerning damage from an infection? We can offer different solutions. With holistic treatments like ozone therapy and PRP therapy, we can fight bacteria and encourage the growth of healthy tissues. By using dental lasers, we can carefully tend to bacteria on the roots of teeth and remove unhealthy tissues to encourage the growth of healthy gums.
