The Effectiveness of LANAP® Laser Dentistry in Hahira, GA
LANAP® laser treatment utilizes laser dentistry to treat gum disease, offering an alternative to traditional cut and sew gum surgery. With LANAP® treatment, the light of the PerioLase® MVP-7™ vaporizes the bacteria that cause gum disease as well as any infected tissue. The laser is selective and will not harm healthy tissue and bone, resulting in little to none of the gum recession associated with traditional gum surgery.
Patients who choose LANAP® laser treatment instead of traditional gum surgery report minimal discomfort and faster healing times after the procedure. Due to the fact that the laser addresses both the infection and infected tissue, patients experience up to a 90 percent reduction in inflammation after only one session. LANAP® treatment also encourages the regeneration of bone tissue that may have been lost to prolonged periodontal disease. The growth of this supportive bone structure can help save even loose or shifting teeth.
The Safety of the LANAP® Protocol
The PerioLase® MVP-7™ and the LANAP® protocol have been approved by the FDA for the treatment of gum disease. It is a safe and effective treatment for all stages of periodontal disease. In many cases, LANAP® treatment can be a safe alternative for those patients unable to undergo traditional gum surgery, as the laser treatment will not negatively impact existing medical conditions or prescription medications.
The LANAP® laser protocol has significantly improved our ability to treat periodontal infections. To schedule your consultation for laser treatment in Hahira, GA, contact Dr. Robinson today.
