Daniel C. Stewart, DDS

Dr. Daniel C. Stewart belongs to a select group of dental professionals who are certified to perform laser gum surgery, a minimally invasive alternative to traditional gum surgery. Only one percent of dental professionals in the country currently offer the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®), which uses sophisticated laser technology to eliminate periodontal infection. Dr. Stewart recently began offering patients with periodontal disease this gum surgery alternative in his Columbia, MD dental practice, Smile Savers Dentistry. The LANAP® treatment is the first FDA-cleared laser procedure for gum disease and periodontal treatment and is only available from a few dentists in Howard County.

Dr. Stewart states, “This is one of the most amazing procedures I have used in over 26 years of practice. My patients are so happy and thankful when the treatment is complete.”

Prior to LANAP®, traditional surgery was typically the only option available to patients whose gum disease had progressed into the moderate or advanced stages. Because of the pain and recovery time associated with traditional gum surgery, many people postpone seeking the care they need. If left untreated, gum disease eventually results in tooth and bone loss. Significant bone loss can even render a patient ineligible for tooth replacement solutions like dental implants. However, the LANAP® treatment is less invasive than traditional surgery, so patients typically experience less pain and a much shorter recovery period. At the same time, the LANAP® treatment offers all of the same health benefits as other gum disease.

A Word From Dr. Stewart: LANAP, A Better Alternative

Posted on May 9, 2012. Filed under: General Dentistry, Gum Surgery, LANAP, Periodontal Disease, Smile Savers Dentistry | Tags: , , , , |

Dr. Daniel Stewart at Smile Savers Dentistry in Columbia MarylandI’ve recently seen a few new patients looking for help in correcting their gum disease. They have been told that they need scaling and root planing (scraping of the teeth using anesthetic), cutting the gums back so as to get better access to the roots and then bone grafting to fill in where the bone has been eroded away.

Youch! No wonder they want a second opinion!

Did you know that I have a dental laser that can do the same thing without all of that painful, aggressive surgery? I have seen miraculous results over the past two years with LANAP. I 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! I had another patient who if they would have seen another dentist, she would have had all her teeth extracted and dentures placed. Guess what!? After LANAP, she still has all of them and they are healthy again.

Most of you who have been patients with me for a while probably don’t have to worry about this procedure because you don’t need it, but you may have friends, family or co-workers that do. Please refer them over here to get a consult to find out if they need help. Don’t let them have the other alternative used on them… unless you don’t like them.
