Gum disease is a contagious bacterial infection that often has no symptoms and is caused when plaque and calculus build up along the gum line. 85 % of Americans have gum disease, and 40 % don’t know this. If left untreated, the gums and bones deteriorate to the point where they can no longer hold the teeth; in that case, tooth loss is imminent. Gingivitis is an initial stage of gum disease, and periodontitis is advanced gum disease. Gum disease can be dangerous, affect your overall health and lead to diabetes, heart disease, respiratory disease, osteoporosis, and even cancer.
Most patients find gum surgery very uncomfortable. Our Advanced Dental Center in Norwalk, CT, offers the latest dental technologies, including LANAP protocol for gum disease treatment. LANAP® laser gum surgery is a modern periodontal procedure that restores health for the gums by increasing their regeneration processes, new bone growth, and gum tissue reattachment. The laser is used to target and remove diseased tissues, and after this procedure, patients have very positive results, such as less tooth loss compared to traditional surgery. This high-tech procedure is safe and minimally invasive, and post-procedure discomfort also is typically minimal.
Most medical research shows that LANAP® laser gum surgery has verified an 87.9 % success rate. It is the only FDA-approved laser periodontal treatment that is histologically and scientifically proven to work. Many studies show sustainable overcomes in the long run and a faster natural healing process. The laser alternative to traditional gum surgery has less pain and minor discomfort. You may wish to go for the LANAP laser gum treatment for many reasons.
