LANAP for Gum Disease, A Better Alternative to Surgery
If you are looking for help in correcting your gum disease, come in to our Columbia dentist office for a LANAP consultation.
At Smile Savers Dentistry, we have a dental laser that treats periodontal disease without all of the cutting, sutures, and discomfort of traditional, aggressive gum surgery. We have seen miraculous results over the past four years with LANAP. We had a patient say that in one month post-op that he couldn’t remember the last time when he didn’t see bleeding when he brushed! Another patient told us her previous dentist would have had all her teeth extracted and dentures placed. But after LANAP, she still has all of her teeth and they are healthy again.
Quite simply, the FDA approved laser is able to form a clean, closed, and stable environment which allows the body to heal itself naturally and regenerate lost bone. This laser-based approach to treating gum disease makes it easier for you to return your gums to health and the process is far more comfortable than gum surgery.
LANAP is safe for patients with health concerns such as diabetes, HIV, hemophilia, or those taking medications such as Courmadin or Cyclosyporin. The laser treatment is generally no more expensive than traditional gum surgery. However, gum disease treatment plans will always vary with the stage of your periodontal disease, bone loss, and chartings.
If you would like to learn more about LANAP and see if you are a candidate for this safe and gentle treatment for gum disease, please call the Smile Savers Dentistry office to schedule a consultation with Dr. Daniel Stewart: 410-730-6460.
