The teeth aren’t the only important part of the mouth; the gums are equally as important yet often overlooked. Without the right oral care, it’s possible that your gums will succumb to periodontal disease. The consequences of periodontal disease can be devastating to your mouth. Gum tissue pulls away from the bone, bone tissue breaks down, teeth fall out, and so much more. Fortunately, there is now a simple, painless, and effective gum disease treatment that replaces surgery and restores the mouth back to health: Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP).
Do You Have Gum Disease
Gum disease progresses through different stages, and the earlier it is identified and treated, the more efficiently the mouth can recovery. Initial signs of gum disease include irritation along the gumline, bleeding while brushing and flossing, and bad breath. When these signs are ignored and left untreated, gum disease advances into more serious oral health problems like receding gums and lost teeth. Unfortunately, the bacteria that triggers gum disease also poses a threat to other parts of the body, putting people with gum disease at higher risk of conditions like diabetes and heart disease.
The Power of LANAP
LANAP is an FDA-cleared laser treatment that offers an effective alternative to conventional gum disease surgery. Using variable pulsed laser energy, LANAP targets diseased gum tissue without harming healthy tissue or causing any discomfort. The laser light first eliminates all dangerous bacteria and diseases tissue, then interacts with hemoglobin to form clots containing powerful stem cells that trigger the growth of healthy tissue. Results of LANAP are very impressive and include minimized pain and bleeding, less sensitivity, decreased gum loss and swelling, and an increase in the regeneration of healthy gum tissues. All of this is made possible with very little downtime after treatment!
