LANAP® laser treatment offers a number of benefits you just cannot enjoy with traditional gum surgery treatment, including:
If you have been diagnosed with gum disease and require surgery, make sure you understand the difference between traditional gum surgery and laser surgery. Traditional surgery requires using a scalpel so that the doctor can pull back the gum tissue and clean out the infected areas. In some cases, bone grafting and membrane materials are needed to restore the bone and gum tissue. Most patients benefit from an alternative to this type of gum disease treatment with the LANAP® laser protocol. This is a minimally invasive procedure that causes little to no gum recession and can be very effective for removing diseased tissue.
Laser gum disease treatment is an innovative and effective solution for patients with gum disease. If you have periodontal disease, schedule your consultation with Dr. Guirguis in Elyria or Westlake, OH to find out if you are a candidate for LANAP® laser treatment.
