While there are microbes that are part of a healthy mouth’s natural ecosystem, the accumulation of unwelcome bacteria can occur. When this happens, you become vulnerable to different issues, including periodontal disease. This condition occurs when harmful bacteria gather on the roots of your teeth and begin doing harm to the surrounding bone and soft tissues. The deterioration of these tissues can lead to tooth loss, and the bacteria that enter your bloodstream can cause problems with your general health! Our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice is prepared to help you manage your difficult condition. By providing ozone therapy, it is possible for us to target unhealthy microbes while not harming healthy bacteria.
Harmful Bacteria On Your Teeth Roots Can Cause Serious Problems
When plaque and tartar buildup on your smile lead to the accumulation of unwelcome bacteria below your gum line, an infection can develop. It is possible to catch and treat the problem while you only need to deal with gingivitis, the first stage of an infection. Unfortunately, when that early detection does not happen, you can experience periodontal disease, which can be harder to manage and more harmful to your well-being. Bacteria on the roots of your teeth can destroy the soft tissues and surrounding bone, leading to less support for teeth. You can also experience general health complications as bacteria enter the bloodstream and move to different parts of the body.
Addressing The Buildup Of Unwelcome Microbes Through Ozone Therapy
While harmful bacteria are present under your gums and need to be dealt with, there are healthy microbes that are also present in your mouth. Through ozone therapy, we can take on the unwelcome bacteria while not affecting those microbes that are beneficial. We are able to do this by applying concentrations of oxygen, either in a liquid or gas form, to selectively target harmful agents. Because we can take this holistic approach, you can recover from issues more comfortably and easily!
Reviewing Other Options For Care That Fights Gum Disease
We can base plans for your smile care around your condition, and what are concerns are about the state of your gums. For people who have more significant issues that need to be resolved, we can discuss treatment through laser periodontal care. For those who have problems that are caught in time, we can begin a regimen of preventive periodontal services to control an infection and prevent problems.
