Your periodontal health can be more important than you realize. People who are not properly managing problems with gum disease can experience complications that affect their overall health, not just the health of their smile. A serious infection also puts you at risk for tooth loss, as the bacteria responsible for your condition can attack the tissues holding teeth in place. If you have concerns about visiting your periodontist’s office because you have anxieties about oral health care, or because you worry about risks from Covid-19, know that our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice can help. In addition to making our practice a safe and sterile environment for patients and team members, we offer services to ease any discomfort individuals might feel if they struggle with dental fear or anxiety.
We Have Measures In Place To Protect Patients And Staff Against Infection
Because infection is a concern for everyone in public spaces, we want patients to know about the steps we are taking to keep them safe. We have made changes to the way we schedule appointments and our waiting area to avoid potential problems. We even have new systems to purify the air and stop the spread of any harmful agents. Through these measures, and continued work to keep up with CDC and ADA recommendations, we have been able to continue serving the people in our area who need help with periodontal disease.
Sedation Can Help You Manage Anxiety About Treatment
If you have often found yourself avoiding dental work even when it was needed, you may be affected by dental anxiety. To help you feel more at ease when in our office, we can offer sedation during a procedure. With the right sedative, we can help you remain calm while still being conscious of your surroundings. This can make it easier for patients to continue treatment if they are fighting periodontal disease, and it can help people who come in for their first visit to have possible problems diagnosed.
Lasers Lead To More Precise Treatments And Shorter Recovery Times
In addition to making patients comfortable during treatment, we use advanced technology to provide shorter and easier recovery periods after a procedure! Thanks to the laser technology we use when manipulating periodontal tissues, we can make shorter, more precise cuts that do not require sutures when caring for your gums. This allows us to do important work to fight an infection while making the treatment – and its recovery period – easier on you!
