Gum disease treatment does not have to be costly or uncomfortable. In fact, with the LANAP® protocol, a minimally invasive form of laser gum surgery, you can finally receive the treatment you want to control your periodontal disease. Find out more about LANAP® treatment by scheduling an appointment at Advanced Periodontics and Implant Center of Connecticut: (203) 268-2000.
The LANAP® protocol is the only laser gum disease treatment that is FDA-approved and proven to promote gum tissue regeneration. Simply put, LANAP® is a minimally invasive way to regenerate gum tissue after gum disease.
If you have gum disease, it is essential that you visit a periodontist on a regular basis. Although you can do a lot at home to help keep your mouth clean and healthy, only a trained professional has the equipment and skills to stop the progression of gum disease. With regular treatments and a customized plan based on your dental health, you can avoid the systemic effects of gum disease such as cancer, high blood pressure, stroke and diabetes.
Gum disease is extremely difficult, but fortunately its treatment has come a long way over the years. LANAP® is the FDA-approved alternative to gum surgery that is proven to reduce recovery time and make the gum surgery process much more tolerable.
Osseous surgery involves smoothing out the bone around your tooth roots that have been damaged due to gum disease related bacteria build-up. However, in some cases, LANAP® may enable you to avoid osseous surgery. The LANAP® protocol is not only safe, but it uses zero cutting and sutures.
The LANAP® laser gum surgery protocol has given us a faster, more reliable way to solve patient issues related to gum disease. Using a high-tech tool called the PerioLase® MVP-7™, a space-age variable-pulse handheld laser, we are able to deep clean the periodontal pockets that have formed between the teeth and gums. After LANAP® treatment, the site is not only sanitized, but is in a better position for soft tissue regeneration. Studies have shown that several months after LANAP® treatment, most patients see a significant change in the depth of their periodontal pockets.
