Understanding the Link Between Gum Disease and Your Health
If you do not seek treatment for gum disease early, the condition can progress to advanced periodontitis that may be linked to a number of health issues. Some research suggests a link between advanced periodontitis and health issues such as diabetes, heart disease, and certain types of cancer. Warning signs of gum disease include: Sensitive teeth, bleeding gums, inflammation of the gums, gum recession, and bad breath. Early treatment is essential for maintaining optimal oral health.
How LANAP® Works
LANAP® is designed to treat moderate to severe cases of gum disease. It is an FDA-cleared laser protocol for treating gum disease and is backed by many scientific studies and extensive research. Laser gum surgery is an effective and convenient option for patients that need quick treatment of an active infection in the mouth.
Key Benefits of LANAP® Laser Gum Disease Treatment
Patients undergoing laser gum disease treatment enjoy a number of benefits, including a fast healing time, bone regeneration, and low or no risk of gum recession. There is far less bleeding (if any) with this procedure and most patients can return to their regular activities the following day. If you have been diagnosed with gum disease and need treatment right away, this minimally-invasive procedure may be right for you.
