Gum disease can wreak havoc in your mouth causing swollen and painful gums, tooth loss, and deterioration of tissue and bone. Your overall health is endangered by it too, as periodontal infections have been connected to stroke, respiratory and heart problems, and babies with low birth weights. However, advances in laser gum disease treatment make it easier and less painful than ever to get vital oral care. Luckily, Drs. Tom and Mark McCawley are highly experienced with one of the most innovative periodontal treatment methods available.
How Lasers Heal Gums
An advanced laser surgical procedure called LANAP, or Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure, is gentle, non-invasive, and less painful than previous surgical methods involving removal of diseased gum tissue. This laser surgery’s benefits are numerous.
Since the laser targets only diseased tissue and bacteria, the overall prognosis is good. Patients report being highly satisfied with this procedure’s gentleness and positive outcome.
The LANAP Procedure
The LANAP procedure can effectively promote periodontal healing.
Many patients who undergo this treatment were faced with tooth loss or a full-mouth extraction, and they feel extremely grateful how LANAP saves their teeth immediately and promotes a healthy mouth for the future.
