Frequently Asked Questions About LANAP® Gum Disease Surgery in Hahira, GA
Q. How much time will I need to take off from work?
A. Depending upon the severity of your condition, laser periodontal disease treatment is scheduled in one or two sessions. Most patients are able to return to work the day after the procedure, taking only over the counter pain relievers.
Q. Is laser periodontal disease treatment safe?
A. Yes. The PerioLase® MVP-7 has been approved by the FDA and Dr. Robinson has been trained and certified in the LANAP® protocol.
Q. What if I avoid having treatment?
A. Periodontal disease will not resolve itself. It will only worsen, resulting in chronic bad breath, tooth sensitivity, gum recession, loose teeth, and bone and tooth loss. Gum disease, in its initial stage, has also been linked to a host of systemic illnesses. With laser periodontal disease treatment, there is no reason to risk your oral and overall health. LANAP® laser therapy provides convenient treatment with less downtime.
Q. Will I need additional treatment?
A. Bacteria are always present in the mouth. Once your laser periodontal disease treatment has removed the infection, regular periodontal maintenance may be recommended by Dr. Robinson to prevent a reoccurrence.
