Chronic periodontal issues are common, and many people think they have no option but to manage these issues with uncomfortable treatments. However, when you choose a periodontist who uses the most modern treatments available, you can dramatically improve your health while experiencing minimal discomfort. Here at Shenandoah Valley Implant Institute, Dr. Victor Saunders and Dr. Jeff Dickson utilize cutting-edge technologies to get our patients feeling happy and healthy again.
Leave Healthy Gums Intact
Gum disease is linked to multiple serious health conditions, so getting it treated is vital. However, the prospect of enduring uncomfortable procedures can make some people hesitant to seek help. LANAP® laser gum therapy is a treatment method that uses a specialized laser frequency to target only the diseased areas of your gums. This means your healthy tissues are less likely to be subjected to unnecessary discomfort than in traditional gum disease procedures. Furthermore, a reduced treatment area means reduced chances that an infection will develop after treatment.
Survive and Thrive
LANAP® not only eradicates bacteria and damaged gum tissue, but it also helps reverse existing damage and stimulates the growth of new tissue. With your healthy gums restored, you should be able to enjoy more complete oral health in the long term.
All patients are different, which is why Drs. Saunders and Dickson offer a variety of treatment options. The Pinhole® Surgical Technique is a minimally invasive option for treating gum recession. In this method, the periodontist uses specialized instruments to create a minute hole in the gums and then move healthy tissue over the areas from which the gums have receded. Since the point of entry is so small, patients who receive this technique usually report only minimal pain, swelling, and bleeding afterwards.
Managing your oral health comfortably is possible. For more information about the modern periodontal treatment options we offer, contact us and schedule your appointment with Shenandoah Valley Implant Institute today.
