Laser gum surgery in Pomona
If you are looking for an expert periodontist to provide laser gum surgery in Pomona
, you will want to come to our office, Tiger Periodontics and Dental Implants; our top-notch periodontist, Dr. Jonathan Tiger, can provide you with expert periodontal care including laser gum surgery.
At our periodontal practice, we offer laser gum surgery in Pomona using LANAP Laser treatment. It is very important to take care of your gums as gum disease cannot only cause tooth loss, but it has also been linked to other serious medical conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, and even low birth weight babies. The sooner you have your gums treated and back on the road to good health, the more likely it is that your gum disease will be completely treated and that your gums will remain healthy again. At our practice, our periodontist is very happy to offer treatment with our innovative laser gum surgery. The LANAP laser stands for Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure it is an FDA-cleared procedure for alternative treatment of gum disease. It makes it unnecessary for our periodontist to use scalpels or sutures when providing gum treatment. When a periodontal scaling and root planing treatment is not enough to help your gums return to good health, gum surgery is usually the next step. At our practice, patients are able to have gum treatments with the laser, rather than needing gum surgery. Traditional gum surgery can be painful and time-consuming with unwanted side effects such as gum recession and gum sensitivity resulting. With our use of the LANAP treatment in treating gum disease, our periodontist is able to remove diseased tissue while leaving the healthy tissue untouched. The laser can also destroy bacteria and help form a clot that will allow the healthy tissue to reattach to the tooth. This means that you will have less gum recession and sensitivity after treatment. It is also easier and faster to heal from treatment with laser gum therapy then from traditional gum surgery.
