Using Laser Treatment To Fight Gum Disease

What kind of care should you seek out when you are dealing with gum disease? The severity of your infection will change over time. The first stage, gingivitis, is still reversible, which means that the right response can completely stop the issue and return your periodontal tissues to good health. However, when you have difficulties with periodontal disease, a more advanced form of gum disease, the right approach to care becomes more involved. Unfortunately, going without that support can leave you vulnerable to issues like tooth loss, and it can interfere with your general health as well. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, we can recommend different services to fight for your gums. Laser technology makes it possible for us to carefully remove bacteria as well as infected tissues while protecting areas of your gums that are healthy.

Serious Gum Disease Can Create Real Problems For Your Smile And Oral Health

If you have problems with periodontal disease, the right treatments are important for preventing issues like tooth loss, gum line recession, and more. Bacteria that are responsible for your infection can damage the tissues that support your teeth. When they enter your bloodstream, they can reach different parts of your body, which can result in more difficulties for your well-being. There are different services we can provide to control the spread of bacteria and damage to your periodontal tissues.

Scheduling Treatment With Laser Tools

Because we provide periodontal treatments that use laser tools, we can carefully tend to problem areas while leaving your healthy tissues untouched. With our LANAP laser, we can access portions of your teeth roots where bacteria have gathered, clear them from these surfaces, and remove infected tissues so that healthy gums can grow in their place. This approach reduces damage to surrounding soft tissues, removes the need for suturing, limits bleeding, and generally improves your experience with care.

Other Services That Help Manage Periodontal Disease And Its Effects

There are different strategies for managing periodontal disease that can prove effective. For a more holistic approach to treatment, we can offer services like ozone therapy, which relies on concentrated oxygen to address harmful microbes while leaving healthy bacteria alone, or PRP therapy to encourage natural tissues growth. Based on a diagnostic review of your gums, we can determine what course of action is right for you!
