Q: Are Periodontal Disease and Gum disease the same?

A: Periodontal disease is an advanced form of gum disease. This is an infection of the gums that starts out as plaque, a clear film on the teeth that hardens to create tartar. As this substance collects on your teeth, it provides a breeding grounds for bacteria and may require laser treatment to remove it.

Q: What is the least painful way to treat gum or periodontal disease?

A: Not only is laser treatment the least painful way to treat gum disease, it's also the easiest and least time consuming gum surgery. LANAP® is less traumatic since the laser used in the procedure is less invasive than traditional ways of treating gum disease.

Q: What are some other benefits of Laser Gum Surgery?

A: Laser treatment promotes faster gum healing with its minimally invasive techniques. LANAP®'s methods will never create gum line recession. The laser treatment actually helps save healthy teeth, and promotes bone regeneration around the teeth.

A: The PerioLase®MVP-7™ is FDA cleared and has human histology research to support its safety and effectiveness in the reengineering of your gums. Your doctor is trained to offer laser gum surgery.
