WHO & WHERE IN SAN DIEGO WE SERVE
Perhaps you’ve gone to the dentist, discovered a gum issue and need some specialty care. That’s where we come in. Welcome to Poway Perio, the Poway periodontal specialty office serving Poway and the surrounding San Diego area.
We are proud to serve residents of Poway, and nearby San Diego neighborhoods such as Carmel Mountain Ranch, Rancho Bernardo, Miramar, Rancho Peñasquitos, 4S Ranch, Scripps Ranch, Escondido, Mira Mesa, Carmel Valley and Ramona.
Fun fact: Periodontal means “around the tooth.” True to the word’s origin, we’re devoted to serving bones around teeth. Everyone has different periodontal needs, from gum grafting to treatment of periodontal disease, and we want to make sure you get the care you need.
Minimally Invasive Procedures
One of the unique aspects of our practice is our philosophy to employ conservative approaches for periodontal treatments. Minimally invasive procedures like Microsurgical Soft Tissue Regeneration and the application of biological mediators, or Platelet Rich Plasma, for tissue engineering are our main focuses.
Learn more about our periodontal procedures, including:
- Crown Lengthening (correction of the gingival margin prior to restorations)
- Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP & L-PRF biologicals mediators)
- Periodontal Maintenance (post surgical monitoring phase)
- Periodontal Laser Treatment
- Gum Grafting
- Periodontal Plastic Surgeries (corrections of gingival recessions)
Cutting-Edge Technology for Easy Recovery
We are dedicated to using the latest surgical techniques that can promote faster recovery and minimize post-op discomfort. Through the following practices, we prioritize your comfort and aim to make your experience as painless as possible.
Platelet rich plasma (PRP)
Platelet rich plasma (PRP) is a concentrated blood sample that contains high levels of platelets, a critical component of the wound healing process. Platelets contain growth factors that are responsible for stimulating tissue generation and repair.
Clinical studies have shown that application of PRP can help reduce bleeding, minimize pain, reduce infection rates, and optimize overall healing.
Learn more about how we use PRP to make your procedure and recovery as comfortable and painless possible.
Cone Beam Tomography
Utilizing cone beam technologies in our practice provides us with great advantages in maxillofacial imaging. Cone beam CT gives detailed images of the jaw bones and is performed to evaluate diseases of the jaw, dentition, and bony structures of the face, nasal cavity and sinuses.
Dental cone beam CT is commonly used for treatment planning and is also useful for more complex cases that involve:
- Periodontal diseases
- Surgical planning for impacted teeth
- Diagnosing temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ)
- Accurate placement of dental implants
- Evaluation of the jaw, sinuses, nerve canals and nasal cavity
- Determining bone structure and tooth orientation
- Locating the origin of pain or pathology
Laser Treatment of Gum Disease
Lasers can be used to treat periodontal disease. Current controlled studies have shown that similar results have been found with the laser compared to specific other treatment options, including scaling and root planing alone. Scaling and root planning is a traditional non-surgical therapy used to treat periodontal diseases.
The PerioLase® laser is used as part of Laser Periodontal Treatment to remove harmful bacteria and diseased tissue from the gum pocket by passing a laser light between gum and tooth. The laser uses heat to strip away the diseased gum.
Early periodontal disease, known commonly as gingivitis, can often be taken care of and even reversed with mindful dental care, such as teeth brushing, flossing, using of mouthwash and having regular visits to your dentist.
At Poway Perio, in San Diego we only recommend surgical periodontal treatments when necessary. If initial steps or steps aren’t successful, we may recommend surgery to help get your teeth and gums back to health.
