Laser Periodontal Surgery
Gum disease is an epidemic in this country that continues to affect millions of Americans each year. It has been linked to variety of health issues such as heart disease, pancreatic cancer, diabetes and low-birth rates. And until now, treatment of gum disease typically involves cutting down the gum tissue and stitching the gums back together and/or removal of teeth and use of dental implants.
But now with the LANAP® (Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure), the PerioLase® MVP-7™ and dentist are able to remove and kill the specific bacteria in the pockets of your gums while not affecting the healthy tissue which allows the tooth to reattach to the surface.
Benefits of LANAP® include:
Faster Healing LANAP® is a minimally invasive procedure that allows the body to heal itself quickly.
Less Discomfort Due to the bio stimulation capabilities of the Periolase there is usually little to no discomfort for our patients. It is very rare to prescribe pain medication post op LANAP®.
Less Downtime Most patients that opt for laser gum surgery can go straight back to their daily activities the same day!
Little to No Recession Patients travel from across the state to have laser surgery because it does not lower the level of the gum line like traditional surgery.
Reduce Inflammation and Bleeding The PerioLase® MVP-7™ can remove 90% of the inflammation in your mouth after one visit. The laser specifically targets the bacteria in your mouth while leaving the healthy tissue intact.
Minimal Bleeding With the LANAP® Protocol we are able to control the bleeding with the laser. This results in less bleeding and complications.
Saves Teeth! Patient’s number one reason to receive laser gum surgery is because they want to save and keep their natural teeth.
Bone Regeneration LANAP® is the only protocol scientifically proven to regenerate bone around teeth.
Very Safe There are zero contraindications with this laser meaning it does not interfere with any disease or medication.
