Treating Problems Caused By Gum Disease

When people are aware of how harmful gum disease can become, they can feel more prepared to seek care as soon as possible to avoid more serious consequences. When periodontal disease is present, it can cause you to experience worrying cosmetic and oral health problems, and it can even lead to complications with your general well-being. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we can provide specialized care to help those individuals who are trying to control a serious infection. With advanced services and laser technology, we can make managing your condition easier for you. We can also provide ongoing preventive services to help you avoid the more serious consequences of your condition.

The Consequences Of Periodontal Disease Can Be Significant

Gingivitis is a problem, but one that is still reversible, which means you can avoid the kind of long-term trouble that a serious infection can cause. If your condition progresses and you do need to address periodontal disease, there are several concerns to watch out for. In time, your infection can do enough tissue damage to rob teeth of support, which can lead to their losses. Other issues, such as gum line recession and the spread of bacteria through your bloodstream, can create further worries.

Responding To The Negative Effects Of Your Infection

A detailed diagnostic review will help us determine how serious your infection has become. From there, we can talk to you about treatment options. For some patients, it will be appropriate to directly fight bacteria on the roots of teeth and remove infected tissues. We can use laser technology to provide care for your unhealthy gums, which can have important benefits. We can also look at the possible need for services like gum grafting treatment. Grafting services can also benefit from the use of laser tools, as they can lead to results through the more conservative Pinhole Surgical Technique.

Controlling Problems With Gum Disease

Through supportive periodontal maintenance, we can help patients with a history of difficulties managing their gum health. These regular appointments provide care through the removal of bacteria that accumulate and spread below your gum line. This kind of care can act as a substitute for the typical dental cleanings that are provided during routine oral health reviews; keeping up with this service can keep you safe from complications that will require more involved support at a later date.
