Laser Treatments for Gum Disease
If you’ve been battling gum disease or your dentist has told you that you need to see a periodontist (gum disease specialist,) then you owe it to yourself to explore the minimally-invasive option of LANAP: Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure.
About West Frisco LANAP Treatment
Thanks to soft tissue laser technology, we can help our patients treat gum disease without referring them out for painful, invasive surgeries. LANAP uses light amplified energy to:
- Eliminate infectious bacteria from gum pockets around the teeth
- Destroy diseased cellular tissues
- Speed up reattachment of healthy gum tissues to the teeth
- Drastically accelerate the healing compared to traditional gum treatment
- Halt bone loss and tissue detachment
- Help prevent tooth loss
Your Laser Gum Treatment
What should you expect when you’re having LANAP in our Frisco dentist office? Like a conventional treatment, we’ll deep clean the areas under the gumlines to lift away calcified deposits. Afterward, we use the LANAP laser systematically around each infected tooth to sterilize that area and eliminate any remaining pathogens. It’s less invasive than a traditional surgery, however, you can even opt for one of our convenient sedation options if you want a bit of help when it comes to relaxing.
West Frisco Dental And Implants uses LANAP to help you avoid the need for periodontal or flap surgery when gum disease gets out of hand. Now you can experience a healthier smile in a comfortable manner without all the extra appointments or healing time. Dr. Natalia Ovcharenko is a Board Certified Periodontist, as such, she’s a specialist when it comes to helping our patients combat and beat gum disease.
