Advances in dental procedures have given patients a lot of quality of life improvements over the past thirty years. Not only are more of today’s adults keeping their natural teeth longer, there are processes that improve on the speed and recovery time of already successful procedures. Making the treatments easier for patients and more effective at reaching their goals. One notable example of this is the advent of laser dentistry and the impact it has had on treating gum disease.
LANAP® Gum Disease Treatment
Dr. Eastman provides laser treatment for gum disease and that means he can treat patients quickly and effectively with this low-pain procedure. The differences between this process and traditional flap surgery are profound.
The process is simple. The laser makes two passes over the tissue, once to kill bacteria and again to promote healthy tissue growth. The result is non-invasive, and patients report only a minimum level of discomfort. It avoids the extra steps in recovery that other options require and sets you up for success at preventing a recurrence in disease.
Are You a Candidate?
If you have moderate to severe periodontal disease and you have not had success with scaling and root planing, then you are probably a candidate for this procedure. If you have never been diagnosed with periodontal disease but you have symptoms and you suspect you might be a candidate, it’s important that you talk to Dr. Eastman right away. The sooner you start treating periodontal disease, the easier it is to avert its most profound effects.
