Our Infection Control Efforts Keep Periodontal Services Safe

Our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice is ready to help patients who are struggling to maintain their oral health while dealing with periodontal disease. To safely remain open and continue caring for people concerned about their gum health, we made important changes to our office and our operations to keep patients safe from potential coronavirus infection risks. These changes range from adjusting how we schedule patients to introducing new technology that provides better air filtration. We are continuing to follow the guidelines provided by the ADA and CDC, which help us provide quality services in a safe and responsible setting.

What Our Office Has Done To Control Infection Risks

Our efforts to keep patients safe against possible coronavirus risks have included changes in how we schedule and interact with patients. We are putting more space between appointments, and commonly handled items are no longer present in our waiting area. Hand sanitizing stations and an oral rinse help deal with potential risks, and air purifying technology helps remove harmful microbes from the air.

The Importance Of Access To Periodontal Care

Without treatment, periodontal disease can lead to increasing difficulties that affect your smile, your oral health, and even your general well-being. A serious infection can interfere with your health by making other conditions, like diabetes, more difficult to manage. It can also make you more vulnerable to problems with heart disease. Tooth loss is a real concern for those with poor periodontal health – in fact, periodontal disease is actually the lead cause of this problem for adults. Because we remain open and capable of treating periodontal disease, we can help people preserve their appearance and health!

We Can Also Diagnose And Prevent Issues With Periodontal Disease

Thanks to our diagnostic imaging technology, we can determine the severity of an infection that affects your gums. When gingivitis is identified in time, we can address it through a scaling and root planing treatment and return your gums to good health. Supportive Periodontal Maintenance helps patients avoid complications from periodontal disease, which means they are less likely to deal with complications. If periodontal disease is already affecting your well-being, we can discuss different treatment options. Those options include periodontal treatments with lasers, which fight harmful bacteria and also remove infected tissues so that you can grow healthy gums.
