LANAP® and LAPIP® Laser Gum Treatment in Brighton MA
Laser gum treatment is an FDA approved solution for treating periodontal disease (gum disease), which is a chronic gum infection that also effects surrounding bone tissue. LANAP® and LAPIP® are the best brands for reversing these effects on natural teeth and dental implants.
LANAP is an FDA approved laser treatment that fights gum disease while minimizing damaging pockets around teeth. This treatment allows your gum to reattach to your teeth naturally and ultimately heal. No stitches or surgery.
LAPIP is a similar laser treatment used when gum disease exists around dental implants, which is knowns as peri-implantitis. Left untreated, this form of gum disease can lead to dental implant failure. LAPIP® aids in healing your gums by removing diseased tissue and ultimately saving your dental implants.
Why should I consider laser gum treatment over traditional gum surgery?
Laser gum treatment is less invasive than traditional gum surgery which involves stitches and longer recovery time. The laser is precise and removes dead gum tissue while eliminating bacteria. This offers patients a faster healing time of usually 24 hours. Whereas, traditional gum surgery can take up to 4 weeks of healing. Overall, the benefits of laser gum treatment include:
- Pain Relief
- Healthy Gum Tissue
- Tooth and Implant Preservation
- Minimally Invasive
- Quick Healing Time
- Decrease of Gum Infection
- Reverse Bone Loss
Is the procedure painful?
Laser gum treatment is not painful. We may still use a local anesthetic for added comfort. Post-treatment can include swelling and mild discomfort. However, over-the-counter medicines can be used and the side effects usually subside after 24 hours.
