Recognizing The Threat Of Periodontal Disease

The longer you take to recognize that you have a problem with gum disease, the more likely you are to face serious complications from your infection. Unfortunately, people sometimes overlook the warning signs or disregard them, as they are not aware of just how much damage an untreated issue can cause. Did you know that gum disease is the leading cause of adult tooth loss, or that the bacteria that gather under your gums can move to other parts of the body and affect your health? Managing gum disease when it progresses past its initial stage, gingivitis, can be intimidating. Fortunately, your Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice can help. In addition to providing a review that lets you know how serious your infection has become, we can provide different services meant to manage the problem that you face.

You May Be Affected By A More Serious Health Threat Than You Realize

The harm done by gum disease can be significant, and it can affect you in surprising ways. One worry is that the tissue damage you experience from a more advanced stage of periodontal disease will cause tooth loss. Another is that the buildup of bacteria under your gums will lead to new problems as microbes enter and move through your bloodstream. Having the right evaluation can help at the start of your treatment. By using diagnostic imaging technology to closely study your gum health, we can see to it that we fully understand what you need from us. From there, we can discuss different solutions. They can range from the start of consistent preventive services to prevent complications to more involved care that can rely on advanced tools like lasers.

Taking On Problems Associated With Your Poor Gum Health

A patient who is already struggling with periodontal disease may need direct help to prevent further complications. Laser periodontal services remove bacteria and unhealthy tissues so that you can enjoy a healthy recovery. We also provide holistic treatments like ozone therapy and PRP therapy to respond to concerns about bacteria buildup and tissue damage. For those who need help preventing the onset of new problems associated with poor gum health, we can recommend the start of supportive periodontal maintenance. This is a kind of preventive care that can replace traditional teeth cleanings. Often booked more consistently than regular cleanings, these services take care of harmful bacteria that build up on your roots.
