Laser Gum Surgery vs Traditional Gum Surgery

Laser Gum Surgery vs. Traditional Gum Surgery Austin, TX
Periodontal Disease can become devastating for many patients. Although nobody wants it.... it nonetheless occurs and rapidly advances, for a variety of reasons.

Gingivitis is the usual starting point and although easily treatable for most patients, commonly develops into a serious disease process.

Traditional disease treatment procedures are considerably invasive and a painful experience for many patients. Like many other treatment methods and technologies in dentistry, perio treatment research has also produced recent advancements in theory and successful treatment methods.

These advancements now enable patients to benefit from non or minimally invasive treatment choices.

Based on active research conducted by two renowned dentists, a gum tissue surgery therapy that incorporates the use of an Nd:YAG laser (most widely used laser platform in modern dentistry) was developed to successfully compete with the more traditional methods of eliminating the process.Patients in need of gum disease treatment can now ask for the new, minimally invasive, LANAP® (Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure). With LANAP®, a dentist for gum disease can remove bacteria without using a scalpel to cut away tissue. The LANAP® gum disease treatment uses a small laser to remove bacteria and infected tissue from an area without harming the root or healthy tissue. By removing only the infected tissue, LANAP® gum disease treatment reduces unnecessary bleeding and minimizes recovery time.

First, a dentist for gum disease will insert a small fiber between your tooth and the gum to measure the depth of the pocket. Then a small laser is used to remove all bacteria and diseased tissue from the area. The laser is then used a second time to stimulate the bone and root and also to clot the blood and form a tight seal around the tooth. The remaining tissue is recompressed against the tooth without using sutures. Finally, your dentist for gum disease will check your bite to make sure there has been no considerable trauma.

While both LANAP® and traditional gum disease treatment produce effective results, there are a number of benefits to LANAP®. Patients often experience less pain and discomfort during the procedure and do not require pain medication after. Because all healthy tissue remains intact, the healing period is shorter, and there is less risk of infection. Finally, LANAP® gum disease treatment stimulates bone regeneration around the root, saving teeth that may have otherwise been removed.

Due to the time and expenses involved in keeping with new technology, few professionals are able to keep up with state-of-the-art dental procedures. Dr. Corinne Scalzitti is one of the few dentists certified to practice LANAP® gum disease treatment is Austin, TX.
