LANAP® Procedure: Traditional vs. Laser Gum Surgery
Good oral health is the key to a healthy body. Although most people strive for a bright, white smile, they neglect gum health. Almost half of American adults have periodontal disease but many don’t seek treatment for their condition. Untreated gum disease can cause teeth loss, heart disease, and cancer among many other health complications.
Fortunately, there are effective dental procedures that can successfully treat gum disease. The two most effective treatments for moderate-to-severe periodontal disease are traditional gum surgery and the more technologically advanced LANAP® procedure. Are you wondering which procedure is best for your periodontal needs?
In this post, Taly Dental Specialists will explain the difference between traditional vs. LANAP® laser surgery to help you make an informed decision:
