Recognizing The Impact Of Gum Disease

Is gum disease really something you need to worry about? This condition is one that you can prevent by sticking to a good oral hygiene routine. However, if it does become an issue, and you do not address it in time, it can have surprising and alarming consequences! After progressing beyond the stage of gingivitis, periodontal disease can damage tissues that support your teeth, leading to tooth loss. Periodontal bacteria can also make it harder to manage other oral health issues, and may lead to general health issues. Our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice can help you protect yourself. In addition to helping you keep an infection under control, we can provide more advanced services that fight serious issues with your gum health.

Advanced Gum Disease Can Be A Difficult Problem To Manage

Gingivitis is not something to ignore, but it is a problem that you can fully resolve with the right preventive care. In fact, our practice offers preventive periodontal services that fight bacteria responsible for your infection, which can lead to its reversal. When your infection progresses, you become affected by periodontal disease, a more severe problem that can prove harder to manage. At this stage, untreated problems can lead to tissue damage, tooth loss, and general health complications.

Determining The Severity Of Your Infection

If you are unsure of just how serious your infection is, our practice can help you. With a diagnostic review, we can assess just how severe your problem has become, which can determine what kind of treatment will benefit you. An infection caught in time can call for preventive care. Advanced damage to your gums can call for more involved services, including periodontal treatments with lasers.

What Can Treatment Do To Help You?

If you are already struggling with advanced gum disease, we can discuss different treatment options that can encourage the growth of healthy tissues and remove bacteria. Laser periodontal care relies on advanced tools to carefully remove bacteria and diseased gums and ligaments. Through this treatment, we can encourage healthy tissue growth and directly fight the microbes responsible for your condition. We also provide holistic treatments that rely on natural growth factors, as well as treatments with concentrated oxygen to destroy harmful bacteria.
