Treatment for Gum Disease
Today’s advances in laser gum surgery make it possible to finally get an effective treatment for periodontal disease. If you have noticed symptoms like pain around the gums, abnormal bleeding and discomfort while chewing, you may have the beginning stages of gum disease. Letting this disease progress could cause your gums to recede and your teeth to become loose or even start to fall out. With laser gum surgery protocols like LANAP®, it is possible to treat the problem areas to help promote your gum’s healing.
How it Can Help
The LANAP® laser surgery protocol has now been enhanced with True Regeneration™ to help your gums regenerate healthy tissue. In the past, tissue regeneration was only possible through bone or tissue grafts or by using foreign membranes. With LANAP® and True Regeneration™, your gums can start to return to their healthy state after the diseased tissue is removed with the laser. After the surgery, patients typically have less downtime than other types of gum surgery. Cost-effective and convenient, laser gum surgery may be the best treatment to help your smile be beautiful once again.
