Comfortable, Fast Gum Treatment (and More) Without Surgery

This word might cause a reaction. Ready?

Surgery!

It’s something you would prefer to avoid. Agreed?

Laser dentistry has significantly changed the treatment process for many dental procedures. Gum disease, gum treatment, tissue and bone alterations, and more can be treated with the use of advanced laser technology.

A radical change in gum treatment

Oral surgery, including gum surgery, once involved a series of dental appointments. The major concern was a painful recovery process and the occasional suturing that was required.

Laser dentistry radically changes all that. You can save time with less appointments, a faster procedure, plus a more comfortable recovery period than with traditional surgery.

Our Roswell dental office uses LANAP®️ (Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure). This laser dentistry technology is minimally invasive without the use of a scalpel, cutting, or stitches.

LANAP®️ has a variety of uses to improve the health of your teeth and gums. The technology provides a comfortable and effective treatment for periodontal (gum) disease without surgery.

  • Heal faster
  • Comfortable procedure and post-op
  • Minimal bleeding and complications

Like surgery…only different

Think of laser dentistry with LANAP®️ as a type of surgery minus all the painful procedural and post-op issues. A thin laser removes the diseased tissue between your teeth and gums and promotes improved tissue health.

Laser dentistry with LANAP®️ can also help eliminate infection. Once the tissue is removed with the laser technology it gently seals the treated area.

Most laser procedures will be experienced without bleeding or discomfort. Some treatment can be provided without the use of a local anesthesia.

Traditional gum surgery can require two to four weeks for post-op recovery. Laser gum surgery is significantly less than that depending on the extent of your procedure.
