Gum Therapy

Gum disease is a serious condition that, according to the Centers for Disease Control, affects nearly half of adults 30 years and older. If you have gum disease, there’s more at stake than your oral health. Studies show that those with gum disease are at an increased risk of heart disease and stroke, so don’t let it go untreated! We offer a number of treatments to prevent gum disease or reverse its effects.

In the past, gum disease used to require surgery in most cases. While surgery is still a good option in some cases, we can now treat a growing number of cases using a non-surgical laser treatment option called LANAP™ (Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure).

Treating gum disease with LANAP provides many benefits, including:

  • No Cutting & No Stitches
  • Faster Treatments with More Comfort
  • More Precision & Less Damage to Healthy Tissue
  • Faster Healing by Sterilizing Treated Areas
  • More Cost-Effective Treatment Plans

Instead of using a standard scraping tool to clean the area between your gums and teeth, we use a PerioLase® LANAP dental laser. This ultra-thin tool uses quick pulses of energy to gently remove the gum infection. The procedure is so gentle that most of our patients don’t even need anesthesia. Recovery is a breeze too — most patients are able to return to normal activity right after their procedure, and feel fully recovered in less than 24 hours!

Is Laser Gum Therapy Right for Me?

If you have any form of gum disease, even gingivitis, you’re likely a candidate for laser gum therapy. LANAP is especially great for people with busy schedules, dental anxieties, and for those who have multiple affected gum areas. Because of a reduced risk of bleeding and infection, LANAP is also a safer alternative than traditional gum surgery for patients with diabetes, hemophilia, and those on medications that thin the blood.

Laser gum therapy has made gum disease treatment more comfortable and convenient than ever before. Contact us today to learn more!
