Why is periodontal disease so often linked to tooth loss? When the disease is not being managed, it can cause the destruction of periodontal and bone tissues that are responsible for holding teeth in place. When this attachment loss occurs, it may become necessary to extract loose teeth, or they may even be lost on their own. As part of the process of restoring your periodontal health, your Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontist can provide work to remove unhealthy tissues and also encourage healthy growth of your gums. Platelet rich plasma therapy can help you recover tissues that are not affected by gum disease, so you can start to recover from your infection while also enjoying support from periodontal tissues.
Unchecked Periodontal Disease Can Lead To Worrying Tissue Damage
If you let a problem with gum disease go untreated, the harm to your periodontal tissues can become a concern. Unwelcome bacteria that cause an infection can proliferate and spread while also causing inflammation and harm to healthy tissues. If nothing is done in time, the damage may be serious enough to cause tooth loss! After performing a diagnostic review to see what state your smile is in, we can determine how much harm your gums have already experienced because of periodontal disease before recommending beneficial treatment.
Discussing Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy With Your Periodontist
With platelet rich plasma therapy, we can encourage your gums to more quickly recover from an infection that has caused tissue damage. A faster repair of tissues can help you fight your periodontal disease, as portions of your gums that have already been damaged can be replaced by healthy tissues. We can also use platelet rich fibrin therapy to encourage targeted healing. This can be beneficial after a gum grafting procedure, or after you have a dental implant placed.
Additional Services That Can Help You Fight Periodontal Disease
In addition to fighting periodontal damage through platelet rich plasma therapy, we can take on problems with your gums through other services. Laser periodontal treatments can clear away damaged tissues and make room for the growth of healthy gums. We can also help you fight bacteria with ozone therapy, which uses concentrated oxygen to destroy harmful anaerobic microbes without disrupting healthy bacteria.
