Why Choose LANAP for
Gum Disease Treatment
Traditional gum disease treatment options involve cutting the gum tissue or extracting the teeth.
Many patients choose LANAP over traditional scalpel surgery because it is less invasive and painful. There is no cutting and suturing.
Less gum loss
Less Post-op infections
Don’t ignore the early warning signs of gum disease! Signs may include:
- Red, swollen gums that bleed easily
- Gums that seem to have pulled back from the teeth
- Bad breath (halitosis)
- Pus between gums and teeth
- Loose teeth or space between teeth
- Change in the way your teeth fit together when you bite
- Change in the way partial denture or implants fit
- There can also be no symptoms at all!
What Is Gum Disease?
Over 50% of American adults have gum disease – it’s something not widely talked about that can have a big impact on your life.
Gum disease begins when plaque accumulates on the teeth and the calcium in saliva hardens the plaque turning it into tartar or calculus. Germs that live in this plaque or calculus can wreak havoc on your gum health.
Eastmont Family Dental can perform a LANAP procedure, also known as “Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure” to treat gum disease through laser treatment. We use the laser to gently remove harmful germs and diseased tissue from your gum pocket without removing too much of it – allowing the body to heal naturally!
Risks of Untreated Gum Disease
Gum disease isn’t widely talked about, but can have a big impact on your life.
Patients suffering from this condition often feel less confident and fear losing their teeth – which is why more people should be aware of what they’re facing!
With new studies emerging all the time linking oral and overall health, Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss among other more serious conditions such as:
Alzheimer’s & Dementia
Oral & Pancreatic Cancer
