Periodontal Care Can Be More Comfortable Than You Expect

Poor periodontal health can cause more difficulties for a person than you might realize. Did you know that this problem is linked to tooth loss? The damage done by bacteria beneath your gum line can lead to multiple teeth being lost or extracted. It is also possible for your infection to make you more susceptible to physical problems, and it can interfere with other medical conditions that affect you. While the problems associated with periodontal disease can be more serious than you realize, your treatment experience with a periodontist can be more comfortable than you expect. Our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice can use technology, a comforting environment, and even dental sedation to make your experience with care easier.

Digital Imaging Technology Helps Us Closely Examine Your Gums

With digital x-ray technology, we have the ability to closely study a person’s periodontal health and find out what issues might be affecting them. The clarity and detail in these images can help us recognize areas of concern, and they can also help you understand what is happening with your periodontal health. Once these images have been gathered and reviewed, we can make plans to protect you from the harm done by gum disease.

Laser Treatments Offer More Precision And Easier Recovery Periods

With periodontal treatments that rely on lasers, we can deal with infected tissues and bacteria in order to help your gums enjoy better health. Lasers make these treatments easier by allowing us to more precisely manipulate tissues and target problem areas. Lasers also offer shorter and easier healing times, as well as no need to perform any suturing after care is complete.

Anxious About Oral Health Care? Sedation Can Help

Even when they know a procedure can cause minimal discomfort, some people simply struggle to feel at ease with dental or periodontal services. If you have anxieties around treatments, know that dental sedation is available to you at our office. With the right sedative, a patient remains calm even as they stay conscious. This can be used in addition to the appropriate anesthetic to minimize discomfort. Sedation can also help those who need to arrange longer or more involved treatments stay comfortable.
