PRP Therapy And Gum Disease

Problems with gum disease can grow more serious in time. An infection that is not addressed in time can start to do alarming damage to your periodontal tissues and ligaments that support teeth. In time, this can lead to tooth loss! At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we provide many different services to help people with different degrees of periodontal disease. If you are someone who is trying to recover from tissue damage, we can discuss the advantages of platelet rich plasma therapy, or PRP therapy. This treatment encourages faster recovery through the use of platelets, which your body relies on as part of the natural recovery process.

Gum Disease Can Do Serious Damage To Periodontal Tissues

Gingivitis is the first stage of an infection. It can cause worrying problems with tissues that bleed easily, changes in your gum line, persistent bad breath, and more. With that said, at this stage the condition is reversible, which means intervention can stop the problem from growing more severe. When an infection does progress, it will call for more involved services to control the harm to your oral and general health. At our practice, Dr. Kania can provide important updates about the state of your gums if you have problems with periodontal disease. After a diagnostic review, we can determine what kind of service, or services, might be appropriate for you.

How PRP Therapy Helps With Recovery

Through PRP therapy, we can help patients who need help recovering from tissue damage due to gum disease. When tissues and ligaments are destroyed by bacteria, you can experience attachment loss that weakens support for teeth, and that can lead to their loss over time. Through PRP therapy, we can stimulate your tissues to encourage natural growth and recovery. This can be good for both ongoing treatment and recovery from an infection.

Finding The Right Approach For Your Treatment

After evaluating your gums, we can determine what kind of care you might require. We provide many different services, including treatments that rely on laser technology to remove bacteria and unhealthy gum tissues. We can also target harmful microbes with ozone therapy, a treatment that uses oxygen to deal with unhealthy bacteria without disturbing your mouth’s ecosystem.
