The number of people who have periodontal or gum disease, yet go untreated is staggering. In early stages of gum disease, you may experience red, swollen, or bleeding gums. At this stage, the damage is completely reversible. Without gum disease treatment, the condition progresses and symptoms worsen to include, loose teeth, receding gums, and bone loss.
Previously, the only course of action was traditional dental surgery. Now, however, the recommended gum disease treatment is laser gum surgery. Laser gum surgery has made gum disease treatment more comfortable and more convenient for patients of Braintree, MA periodontist, Dr. Thomas Mone.
Laser Gum Disease Treatment the Braintree, MA Periodontist
Dr. Mone offers laser gum surgery, or the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) to patients, because it is a safe and effective way to eliminate gum disease without the use of scalpels or sutures. During laser gum disease treatment, our Braintree, MA periodontist utilizes the PerioLase® MVP-7™ to target bacteria that cause gum disease. Treatment with LANAP® is minimally invasive and patients report less pain and less down time with laser gum disease treatment then with traditional surgery.
LANAP® is the only FDA cleared protocol for gum disease treatment. Our Braintree, MA periodontist is trained and certified to perform LANAP®. The procedure is scheduled in two sessions of two hours, concentrating on one side of the mouth during each sessions
