When you practice smart dental care, and stay consistent about cleaning your teeth at your gum line, you can protect yourself against gum disease. Unfortunately, people are not always as thorough with their smile care as they ought to be. This lack of thoroughness, and a lack of appreciation for the harm gum disease can do, individuals can find themselves struggling with periodontal health issues. Your Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal specialist is prepared to help you if you need to manage the harmful effects of gum disease. Our practice can also provide counseling and support to help you prevent the progression of an infection.
Untreated Issues With Your Gum Health Can Create Big Smile Concerns
Would you normally think of tooth loss as a periodontal problem? You might not realize it, but the most common reason for adult tooth loss concerns issues with poor gum health. When a case of gingivitis progresses to the point of causing periodontal disease, the attachments that keep your teeth secure start to become damaged. When this happens, teeth are loosened, and may be lost! In addition to discussing periodontal support with you, your periodontal specialist can talk with you about using dental implants to hold teeth you have already lost.
Receiving Special Treatment To Combat Gum Disease
You can arrange care that is intended to help you control the effects gum disease can have on your life. Platelet rich plasma therapy (PRP therapy) can be performed if you need help restoring damaged gum tissues. You can also enjoy a thorough cleaning in the form of a scaling and root planing. This procedure can reverse a case of gingivitis, or help fight the progression of periodontal disease. You can even count on a modern, laser-based treatment thanks to LANAP, which encourages the recovery of your gums without surgery.
We Can Also Help You Prevent Issues With Gum Disease!
In addition to taking on cases for people who are already experiencing advanced problems with gum disease, our practice can help you prevent issues with poor periodontal health.
