Periodontal disease is a condition that causes inflamed, sensitive gum tissue. It’s associated with other unpleasant symptoms as well, including chronic bad breath, gum recession and bleeding gums. Even worse, periodontal disease has been linked to diabetes, low birth weight babies and heart disease. Fortunately, there are things you can do to manage your disease and minimize your daily symptoms. Dr. Gregg Codelli frequently recommends LANAP® treatments for those with gum disease. Here are four benefits laser treatments can offer you.

 

  1. Gum Regeneration

 

LANAP® has been shown to stimulate periodontal regeneration. This means that treatment can actually help you regeneration your own cementum, alveolar bone and periodontal ligaments without the use of bone grafts or exogenous growth factors. Over time and with consistent treatments, this regeneration can help you regain greater oral health and reduce your risk of tooth loss.

 

  1. Minimal Discomfort

 

When compared to standard procedures for gum disease, laser treatments cause minimal swelling and pain. They also increase treatment accuracy and speed so you can get back to your life as soon as possible.

 

  1. Quick Recovery

 

Patients who receive laser gum disease treatments are often surprised by how quick the recovery period is. Since the laser causes minimal trauma to oral tissues, it facilitates rapid healing and is less likely than traditional procedures to cause complications such as excessive bleeding or infection. 

 

  1. Improved Oral Health

 

LANAP® treatments have been shown to provide long-lasting results for most people and can improve your oral health significantly. It is never a good idea to leave periodontal disease untreated, and doing so can lead to the development of more severe symptoms. Treatment with laser technology is a convenient and reliable way to get your disease under control and improve your oral health.
