LANAP® Laser Gum Therapy
How Laser Dental Treatment Is Changing the Way Patients Feel about Managing Gum Disease
In the United States, an estimated 50 percent of all adults are burdened with the reality of gum disease. Gum disease does not just affect the way a person looks, but can often lead to tooth loss as the gum tissue becomes diseased and pulls away from the teeth. Without protection, the teeth are at risk.
Traditionally, the way that dentists solved this issue was through gum surgery that involved the cutting and suturing of the soft tissues to close the pockets created by gum disease. While effective, this invasive procedure frequently concerned patients. Now, laser gum treatment has wiped away their worries by providing a leading-edge way to treat gum disease without the use of scalpels: LANAP® laser treatment.
How It Works
Understanding the LANAP® Laser Dental Treatment
The LANAP® process is based on the use of hand-held laser tools. During the LANAP® procedure, specialized lasers remove any diseased or dying gum tissue while leaving the healthy gum tissue intact. There is no cutting and there are no sutures after the procedure. With proper at-home treatment and regular visits to your certified LANAP® treatment dentist at Clock Tower Dental in Franklin Square, NY, you can expect your healthy gum tissue to reattach to your teeth. The end results are reduced periodontal pockets and pink, healthy gums that protect your teeth.
