It is natural to feel skeptical toward new dental treatments. However, there are a variety of reasons why you should choose laser gum surgery over traditional methods when you develop gum disease. Our dentist highly recommends it, and our team will walk you through the advantages.
Traditional methods would require cutting into the gum tissue, which results in bleeding. Lasers directly target the harmful bacteria, so no cutting is required. This results in little to no bleeding.
In the past, patients would typically need to schedule several appointments to see any results. However, the LANAPÒ gum disease treatment only requires one visit that generally lasts between one and two hours.
Although there may be some discomfort following the procedure, many patients find they do not require pain medication. Most people find they can go back to their normal routines within 24 hours of the treatment.
Infections are always a possibility, but they are far less likely when dealing with laser gum surgery over traditional methods. The reason for this is that LANAPÒ is capable of eliminating 99.9 percent of harmful bacteria from the gum tissue.
Not everyone will be a candidate, and you will need to schedule a consultation to see if you qualify. However, a greater number of people find that they qualify for laser treatment over traditional means. In particular, those who suffer from hemophilia, HIV and diabetes tend to prefer laser treatment over the alternatives.

Staff is very friendly. No wait time. They saw me and my daughter in a timely manner and Dr. Richards was so great! The work I had done was completely pain free... Didn't even feel the shot or the work that was being done. The end results were exactly what I needed! No pain, no complaints. Dr. Richards even called the same evening to see if I was feeling okay and to see if I had any questions... Best dental services I have ever had.Marisa B.
