Periodontal Disease And Gum Recession

Not all effects of periodontal disease can be easily seen. For example, you may not see the effects of tissue damage in the mirror, but the harm to your gums can continue until you find that there is a concern about looseness that makes tooth extraction necessary! It is also difficult to see how bacteria might be traveling through the bloodstream to create problems in different parts of your body. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we can help with these different threats. We can also help with a negative effect that you can see. As gum recession worsens as a result of your infection, you can look into laser treatment to restore your gumline and smile!

Receding Gums Can Be A Sign Of Poor Periodontal Health

The gradual recession of your gums can become a serious concern. The effect on your smile can be difficult for you to overlook. Unfortunately, there are additional worries around this problem, as it can lead to more sensitivity issues and make new health issues harder to avoid. When you make plans to take on periodontal disease, our practice can talk with you about the role a gum grafting treatment can play in improving your appearance and well-being. Because we use laser tools to provide this service, we can offer desirable results while minimizing the impact on your tissues.

Addressing The Cosmetic And Health Impact Of Gum Recession

The cosmetic and health effects of gum disease can be tough to ignore. A grafting service can be an important part of your care. With laser tools, we can make small pin-sized holes which enable us to manipulate tissues back into their proper spaces. This is a service known as the Pinhole Surgical Technique, something that minimizes bleeding and tissue damage while removing the need for suturing.

What Else Can Your Periodontist Do To Help You Manage Your Health?

There are different actions that we take based on the needs we observe during your periodontal review. That diagnostic evaluation of your gums can let us know if you need to start supportive periodontal maintenance, a service that takes the place of regular dental cleanings. It also helps to make a determination about whether you should have more advanced services. Lasers can actually help by removing unhealthy gum tissues and bacteria to encourage the growth of healthy tissues.
