When Tooth Loss Is A Consequence Of Gum Disease

People with gum disease can fail to realize just how serious their problem is, or how harmful it can eventually become, until they speak with a periodontist. Did you know that an untreated infection raises your risk for tooth loss? This is not the only consequence of the condition, but it is a worrying one. Fortunately, it is something that your Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontist can treat! Timely care can address periodontal disease and prevent the most significant consequences. If tooth loss is something you have already experienced, implant dentistry can give you back your complete smile by permanently securing lifelike restorations.

Problems With Periodontal Disease Can Lead To Tooth Loss And Other Difficulties

The tissue damage caused by periodontal disease can be significant, and it can worsen to the point where you lose teeth! Few oral health problems are as conspicuous as this one, but your losses create more than just cosmetic issues. Your ability to bite and chew will be limited, and you become vulnerable to additional losses as well as the deterioration of your jawbone tissues.

Taking Care To Restore Your Incomplete Smile

Implant dentistry provides permanent stability for lifelike replacement teeth, allowing you important functional support as well as a comfortable means of regaining your complete and confident smile. The implants are secured through placement in the jawbone; care is taken to make sure they are set in spaces that previously supported teeth roots. After healing from this process, you can have permanent restorations set on them to close smile gaps.

For patients who have active problems with periodontal disease, care for the infection itself will need to precede the placement of dental implants. The good news is that there are advanced services we can provide, including services that rely on laser tools to make caring for your gums more comfortable and conservative.

Managing Active Concerns About Periodontal Disease

Properly managing periodontal disease with a specialist’s help will be important for preventing future problems. Care also helps you move forward with plans to restore your smile if your infection has already caused tooth loss. We offer different approaches to care, including services with lasers to carefully tend to unhealthy gums and bacteria. There are also holistic treatments that address tissue damage and active infections. For example, PRP therapy can help encourage healing of tissues that have been damaged by your poor condition.
