What Is Laser Gum Treatment & How Does It Relate to Periodontics?, Gates, New York

As gingivitis worsens, the condition can expand from the gums to affect the teeth and bone. This condition requires intervention to stop tooth loss.  Laser gum treatment is a no cut, no sew, no fear way to treat the disease. Drs Emery & Scuro DMD, PC, in Rochester, NY, can share some information on what the process entails and how it can improve your periodontic condition.

What Is Laser Gum Treatment?

periodonticsLaser gum treatment, also known as LANAP, is used to treat periodontal disease. This technology mitigates the use of scalpels and stitches, promoting faster recovery and a better healing process. The method also costs less and has a lower chance of exposing the roots of the teeth and causing infection. 

LANAP uses lasers to kill the bacteria that have grown in your mouth causing swollen gums and loose teeth. After the procedure, your body will naturally fight to restore your gums to their former color and thickness.

How Does It Relate to Periodontics?

People who have gum disease, with pockets of 5 millimeters or greater, may be candidates for laser treatment to improve their condition. This technique reduces the disease that can eat away at the support structures holding the teeth in place. The laser procedure promotes healing to improve the patient's oral health and bring their gums, teeth, and bone back to a healthier condition.

Following healthy oral care routines, like brushing and flossing your teeth, will help prevent gum disease. If, however, you need surgery to address severe gingivitis, Drs Emery & Scuro DMD, PC, offer LANAP as a no cut, no sew, no fear solution. Drs Emery & Scuro DMD, PC have been providing customized care for over 35 years and provide cutting-edge dentistry for a range of services, including teeth whitening and implants. Call (585) 247-7110 to schedule an appointment today or visit the website to learn if you are a candidate for this procedure.
