Treatment for periodontal concerns has gotten easier, quicker and gentler with advancements in technology. Lynn Dental Care has invested in the state-of-the-art LANAP® dental laser for more effective and minimally invasive laser gum disease treatment.
LANAP in North Dallas, TX, uses gentle laser light to eliminate gum disease without the need of scalpels, sutures and with minimal bleeding. Patients benefit from nearly instant results with minimal discomfort when compared to traditional gum therapy. Laser gum disease treatment is effective at eliminating diseased soft tissues and promoting regrowth and reattachment of healthy gums to your teeth. LANAP also boasts True Regeneration™ of bone in the jaw. When periodontal disease has caused jaw bone deterioration, our LANAP treatment is able to stimulate the bone to encourage regeneration without the need for bone grafts. This gives our patients a quicker and gentler overall periodontal treatment.
LANAP delivers a precise amount of focused light energy via a small fiber. This is gently placed in the periodontal pocket, which forms between the teeth and the gum tissue. The laser works to reduce harmful bacteria and removes a small amount of diseased gum tissue. LANAP also boasts True Regeneration™ of new bone in the jaw. When periodontal disease has caused jaw bone deterioration, our LANAP treatment is able to stimulate the bone to encourage regeneration without the need for bone grafts. Next, tartar, which is associated with red, bleeding, swollen gums, is gently removed from the surface of roots with small dental instruments and an ultrasonic scaler.
The laser portion of the treatment is performed first, and normally only takes a few minutes. The next step is focused on scaling, a procedure that removes tartar buildup using small tools. One or several sessions of LANAP gum disease treatment may be needed to achieve optimal results, depending on the severity of the disease and your scheduling preferences. During the consultation phase, we will discuss the comprehensive treatment plan and explain how many appointments will be needed
