LANAP Laser Treatment
Doctor Strever Discusses the Benefits of Laser Gum Therapy
Millions of Americans suffer from gum disease symptoms without seeking treatment. Swollen, bleeding gums may not seem like they warrant immediate medical attention, however, periodontal disease is progressive and without intervention, will result in tooth and bone loss. It can also negatively affect other medical conditions, such as diabetes and certain types of cancer. Dental surgery was previously the generally accepted treatment for periodontal disease. Now, laser gum surgery is the recommended gum disease treatment in Hixson, TN by Dr. Charles McBrayer and Dr. Strever.
What is Laser Gum Surgery?
The Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) utilizes laser technology to successfully treat gum disease symptoms with no incisions. The light from the Periolase® MVP-7™ removes the bacteria that cause gum disease as well as infected tissue, leaving your mouth healthier after only one session. Lasers have long been used in dentistry to hasten tooth whitening procedures or facilitate a stronger bond for cosmetic restorations but now, lasers can provide you with more comfort and less downtime when seeking treatment for your gum disease symptoms.
Dr. McBrayer and Dr. Strever recommends this laser gum disease treatment in Hixson, TN due to its many advantages of health and comfort for patients, but also because patients that undergo laser treatment have a greater likelihood to complete their full treatment than those patients who have traditional surgery.
Who is a Good Candidate for Laser Gum Surgery?
Anyone who is experiencing gum disease symptoms may be a good candidate for laser gum surgery. The laser does not interfere with any medications or negatively impact existing medical conditions. In fact, the absence of scalpels can make LANAP® more suitable for patients with blood disorders or conditions that make them more susceptible to infection. The best way to determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure is to schedule an appointment with Dr. McBrayer and Dr. Strever.
