If you keep up with a good oral hygiene routine and regularly undergo preventive dental care, you can protect yourself against potentially serious issues caused by periodontal disease. Unfortunately, many people struggle with poor gum health, and that can lead to surprising consequences! Our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice provides a number of services that address tissue damage and other problems caused by more severe infections. One treatment approach we offer relies on your body’s natural growth factors to stimulate recovery. Through PRP therapy, we can help you regain better periodontal health while depending on a more holistic approach to support.
How Worried Should I Really Be About Gum Disease?
If you do not take gum disease seriously, you can come to regret your inaction. In time, an advanced infection can lead to difficulties with tooth loss, and may interfere with your ability to manage other health conditions. A link between periodontal disease and heart troubles has also been identified! There are several services our practice can offer to help you manage a more severe infection. One service, PRP therapy, relies on the body’s natural growth and recovery process to stimulate healing and protect your tissues and smile.
PRP Therapy Encourages Tissue Recovery
PRP therapy relies on platelet rich plasma to help manage your gum health. Platelets are used by our bodies to facilitate healing in damaged areas. By using concentrations of plasma that are richer in platelets, we can stimulate the growth and recovery process to address damage done to your gums by bacteria. We offer PRF therapy, or platelet rich fibrin therapy, to encourage faster and more successful recovery after dental implant placement.
Other Services That Address Potentially Severe Periodontal Problems
There are several approaches that we can take to restoring your smile and oral health when you have issues with gum disease. These approaches include treatments that use periodontal lasers to both remove bacteria and carefully trim away infected tissues. We can also provide important preventive services that remove bacteria from beneath your gum line before an advanced infection forms.
It can be difficult to know just how severe an infection is, or what can be done about it, without the proper information. To learn more about your infection and treatment options, you can schedule a diagnostic review with Dr. Kania!
