Only a small percentage of Americans that have gum disease actually seek treatment. Research shows that gum disease has been linked to a number of health problems including pancreatic cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. It is now an epidemic in the United States and around the globe. Until recently, treatment options included invasive surgery where the gum tissue had to be cut down and then sutured back together.
The introduction of the PerioLase® MVP-7™ and LANAP® makes it easier for us to only target the bacteria and infected tissue within the pockets of the gums and leave healthy tissue behind. You can enjoy a comfortable treatment with a lower risk of tooth sensitivity and enjoy more predictable results. LANAP® is an FDA cleared laser treatment and is backed by extensive science and research studies. It is the highest standard of care for treating moderate to advanced periodontal disease and can even help to save teeth by regenerating bone tissue around the tooth structure.
