Periodontal disease can lead to discomfort and over time, an increased risk of tooth loss. In the more advanced stages, we could use the advanced REPAIR WaterLase system to remove diseased tissues and improve oral health. In today’s blog, your Encinitas/San Diego, CA, periodontist talks about the benefits of our dental lasers. With the right treatments, we can help your smile stay healthy and whole!
When to Seek Periodontal Treatment
Our team offers treatment to prevent and manage periodontal disease. If you begin to experience soreness in the gums, redness or bleeding, or notice the tissues are receding and exposing sensitive tooth structure, then you need to see us right away. With treatments like REPAIR with WaterLase, our team can trim away the diseased tissues so healthy ones can reattach to the teeth, and we can manage the issue to prevent worsening symptoms and the risk of adult tooth loss. You may be referred to us by our general dentist, or you can schedule a visit with us yourself as needed.
How We Use The REPAIR WaterLase System
The REPAIR WaterLase system employs a concentrated beam of light that is specially calibrated to take on soft tissue concerns, removing diseased tissues and destroying harmful bacteria deposits, so we can bring your periodontal disease into a more manageable state, one that can protect your smile from the risk of further recession and tooth loss. The steady stream of water that accompanies the laser can help protect the healthy tissues and ensure the procedure is a comfortable experience, one that rarely needs any anesthesia, and heals quickly.
The Benefits of Treatment
The lack of scalpels and sutures means the treated area heals quickly, without any damage to surrounding structure. Many people return to normal activities after only a day or two of rest! The laser also prevents swelling, infection, bleeding, and soreness afterward too. Since the lasers destroy harmful deposits of bacteria, this helps improve the overall health of the smile. Patients enjoy a comfortable and convenient means of controlling harmful disease and keeping smiles whole and healthy.
