Gum disease is a progressive oral condition. Unlike a common cold, gum disease will not resolve on its own and requires professional intervention to preserve the health of the gums, teeth, and bone. For more severe cases of gum disease, the only treatment option for many was osseous surgery, an invasive procedure that involved the use of scalpels to create incisions in the gums for access to the tooth roots.
At Eastern Shore Smile Solutions, we offer a revolutionary new alternative to traditional surgery: LANAP®. Utilizing the targeted power of laser technology, LANAP® in Cambridge and Easton, MD, allows us to precisely and accurately eradicate disease-causing bacteria from the teeth and gums, without disturbing the healthy tissues! Along with being minimally invasive, LANAP® is the only protocol cleared by the FDA for True Regeneration™ and stimulation of new hard and soft tissue growth at the treatment site. If you are suffering from gum disease, there is no need to risk putting off treatment any longer. Contact our office to schedule a LANAP® consultation today!
The purpose of both traditional osseous surgery and LANAP® is to rid the teeth and gums of bacteria and restore the mouth back to proper health. However, how these two treatment options reach this end goal is drastically different. This innovative technique has redefined what it means to treat gum disease and is advantageous to patients for many reasons. Perhaps the most defining factor is its elimination of the need for scalpels and sutures. With LANAP® we can clear away bacteria, cauterize the treatment site, and encourage gum reattachment and bone regeneration without needing to make a single incision in your gums!
