Laser Gum Therapy

STAGES OF GUM DISEASE

GUM DISEASE

The first stage of gum disease is usually identified by puffy, swollen, and bleeding gums. The early stage is known as gingivitis and is relatively easy to treat. If it is left untreated and develops into periodontitis, however, we may need to perform periodontal therapy or laser gum disease treatment to eradicate the active infection. Advanced stages of gum disease can lead to tooth loss, negatively impacting oral and overall health.

BENEFITS OF THE LANAP® PROTOCOL FOR GUM DISEASE TREATMENT

Dr. Michael may recommend LANAP® laser treatment over other periodontal therapies for a number of reasons. Laser treatment is minimally invasive, and there is virtually no downtime involved. Patients experience less bleeding, sensitivity, and discomfort than with traditional gum surgery.

We can eradicate almost all of the infection in a single visit with LANAP® laser surgery, and you can return to your regular activities shortly after treatment.

LANAP® LASER THERAPY FOR THE TREATMENT OF GUM DISEASE

The LANAP® protocol is a proven method for killing bacteria that reside under the gums without causing trauma to surrounding tissues. The laser is passed over the infected tissue to eliminate bacteria and induce the natural healing process. LANAP® treatment is an FDA cleared laser protocol for treating gum disease and boasts a very high success rate. Dr. Carmy Michael may recommend the LANAP® protocol as part of your gum disease treatment plan to prevent loose teeth and tooth loss.

"I had been on a search for a GOOD dentist for a long time when I ran across this office. I must say I had the best experiences here. Staff is very nice and welcoming. Due to some issues I was having with a tooth, I had to see the dentist 5-6 times in one month. Every time I came in I was welcome with a smile and I was through exactly what would happen on the visit. Overall I love this office, it's staff, and the dentist is greatest. This is my permanent dentist now! I recommend any and everyone to try them out!"
