Laser Assisted Gum DiseaseTreatment

Why consider Laser Assisted Gum Disease Treatment? If you are concerned with receding gums, food traps, or soreness between the teeth, or have been told by your dentist that you need gum surgery or scaling and root planning, there is another way.

The Advantages

The advantages of this treatment, called LANAP, are these:

  • Direct Healing of Gum
  • Potential Bone Growth
  • Little Discomfort, No Pain
  • Back to Work or Play Immediately
  • No Cut, No Sew, No Fear

In the late 1980’s, the clinical evidence showed one laser stood above the rest – the Nd:YAG. It was specifically designed to eliminate gum disease and grow bone back with NO cutting, EASY HEALING, AND NO PAIN.

The Nd:YAG laser is the only FDA approved laser for treating periodontal disease. Why?  Because it is the only laser that does not damage healthy gum tissue in treating gum disease.

When combined with other non-surgical techniques, it’s success rate is very high.

How Gum Disease Starts

Gum disease occurs when the bacteria living in the mouth settle between the teeth and gum creating gum pockets – separations that occur as the inflammation caused by the bacteria eats away the gum and bone. If untreated, the cycle of bacteria  –> inflammation –> bone destruction goes on.

LANAP – A Definitive Treatment

Clinicians report that after a LANAP procedure patients rarely need Tylenol or other pain relief medication and are back to work immediately.

Falls Church, VA dentist, Dr. Miller has found that in his 23 years of using LANAP, it is very kind to the gum tissue — almost totally painless, heals much faster, and patients who have it done are no longer afraid of gum disease treatment. Most importantly, a significant number of Dr. Miller’s patients have a regrowth of bone which allows them to retain their teeth and strengthen them.
