Safe and Effective Gum Tissue Restoration
If you’re suffering from gum disease, you’re likely not alone. Millions of people are at a constant battle with gum disease. Gum disease is mainly caused by a bacterial infection inside your gum pockets (space between your gum and your teeth) which leads to the loss of natural teeth or dental implants. Traditional gum surgery treatment may leave you with gum recession and temperature sensitivity. PerioLase LANAP (laser assisted new attachment procedure) treats your diseased gums with a non-invasive laser.
What is PerioLase LANAP?
The LANAP laser is a small fiber optic light that emits a specific wavelength which targets bacteria inside your gums, while leaving healthy gum tissue unharmed. It also stimulates blood inside your gums to congeal around your teeth, which in turn promotes your gums to reattach to your teeth and regain bone loss from damage that was caused by gum disease. There is no cutting or stitches involved in this treatment.
Why choose LANAP?
- Your recovery is faster and less painful
- Less risk of developing hypersensitivity. We don’t want you to miss out on your favorite ice-cream and a cup of coffee in the morning.
- Less risk of gum recession
- Regeneration of bone around your teeth
Is laser gum surgery painful? Laser gum surgery is not painful. Laser gum surgery is one of the most comfortable procedures presently offered at a dental practice. It is a non-invasive technique that does not require sutures or any incision in your gum. Our doctors may administer a small amount of anesthetic, since a warm feeling will be generated from the laser tip.
Do gums grow back after laser surgery? Your gums will grow back after laser surgery. Your gums may look different after healing. You will observe less puffiness and redness. Your gums will look pink in tone with healthy architecture re-established after your laser treatment.
