What is Gum Disease Treatment?
Gum disease is commonly referred to as periodontal disease and needs to be cared for by a professional. There are several effective gum disease treatments to consider. Laser gum disease treatment is one of the most popular treatments on the market as it heals quickly and effectively treats the problem areas.
What is LANAP?
LANAP is short for Laser-Assisted-New-Attachment-Procedure, which is an advanced gum disease treatment with the use of laser technology. Patients seeking LANAP treatment often use it once their gum disease has worsened to the point that traditional tooth cleaning will be unable to reverse. At Dental Partners of Boston, we specialize in LANAP treatment. Dr. Guzman is certified in the procedure and has effectively treated thousands of patients.
How Does LANAP work?
LANAP treatment allows Dr. Guzman to remove infected gum tissue without needing to cut the gums and stitch them back together. Instead, we use a PerioLase MVP-7 laser to treat the infected gum tissue that has started separating from your tooth root. Any calculus deposits are cleaned and removed by an ultrasonic scaler. Once all the bacteria is removed, the laser will clean the area again and the healthy gum tissue will naturally begin regenerating. Typically, patients experience minimal discomfort and find their healing time is significantly shorter from traditional flap surgery and other gum disease treatments.
Why Consider LANAP?
If you have gum disease problems, LANAP treatment in Boston is one of the most effective treatments to treat and reverse gum disease. There are multiple advantages to LANAP including:
- No cutting and stitches required
- Full-mouth in-office treatment in one treatment
- Faster recovery time
- Improved success rate from traditional gum surgery
- Improved success rate for bone regeneration
Laser periodontal treatment provides excellent benefits for patients dealing with gum disease. Since gum disease is prevalent, effective treatment is essential to protect the teeth and gums from additional damage. Dr. Guzman can repair gums and will be able to protect your teeth by using LANAP to aid in cleaning the gums and teeth from the bacteria in the mouth.
