If you require surgery to repair the damage done by periodontal disease, it is essential to understand your gum disease treatment options and learn the differences between traditional gum surgery and laser surgery.
Traditional surgery typically involves scalpels and sutures. During a traditional gum surgery procedure, the periodontist uses a scalpel to enhance the visibility of the gum tissue, clean the pocket, and decrease the pocket depth by cutting away the tissue. The periodontist will often need to use gum grafting in order to successfully reattach the gum tissue to the tooth’s root exterior. While traditional gum disease treatment may be necessary in some cases, most patients today choose the alternative: laser gum surgery.
Unlike traditional surgery, the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure does not require scalpels or sutures. Because laser surgery is a minimally-invasive gum disease treatment, patients experience little to no pain or discomfort. The PerioLase® MVP-7™ used in LANAP® employs cutting-edge technology that has truly transformed the way dental professionals manage gum disease today. The laser’s ability to detect the difference between healthy and diseased tissue allows a periodontist to remove bacteria from the gums without cutting, damaging, or removing healthy tissue.
Advanced Dental Arts is pleased to offer a LANAP® certified periodontist in our Arvada office who can help you decide if laser gum surgery is the right gum disease treatment for you. Lastly, we accept most insurances, and we work with our patients if any financial troubles arise.
