Starting PRP Therapy For Periodontal Tissue Damage

How much concern should you feel over gum disease? When you start to find out just how harmful this problem can be, you may realize you have given the condition too little thought! In time, an infection that is not managed properly can cause serious tissue damage, which can lead to deep periodontal pockets and even an alarming lack of support for teeth that makes extractions necessary! Fortunately, this damage to your gums is something that our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice can help you resolve. Through platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy, we can speed up your natural recovery process in order to address this harm.

The Link Between Gum Disease And Periodontal Tissue Damage

The bacteria that are responsible for your difficulties with gum disease can harm you in several ways that you should be aware of. One issue is with tissue damage, something that worsens over time as bacteria continue to harm the gums, ligaments, and even bone that help keep teeth in place. If this damage is not treated in time, you can find that your teeth lose critical support, making extractions necessary. As part of how we treat periodontal disease, we can offer a solution that helps you heal in less time and prevent more serious problems.

How PRP Therapy Helps You Recover From Poor Periodontal Health

The platelets in our blood are important to the processes of healing and physical recovery. To stimulate healing, we can rely on plasma that is rich with platelets to stimulate healing. PRP therapy can be used to assist in different forms of recovery. For those who need to address tissue damage from gum disease, we can rely on PRP therapy to help facilitate faster healing to prevent attachment loss and other concerns. We should note that we can also use a platelet rich fibrin matrix to help with recovery so that you can move ahead faster with the dental implant placement and restoration processes.

Reviewing Other Treatment Options That Are Available To You

There are additional services that are able to help you take on problems with poor periodontal health. Through a diagnostic review of your gums, we can determine which of these might be right for you! Our options for care include work with advanced lasers that can more conservatively tend to soft tissues and remove harmful bacteria. Another option involves targeting unwelcome microbes with ozone therapy, a treatment that uses oxygen to take care of harmful bacteria without disrupting your mouth’s ecosystem.
