A: Periodontal disease is an infection that starts out as plaque, a clear film on the teeth that hardens to create a calculus buildup beneath the gum line. As the calculus builds up on your teeth, it creates a pocket between the gums and teeth, providing a breeding ground for bacteria that destroys the tissue and bone that support your teeth.
A: Not only is laser treatment the least painful way to treat gum disease, patients also experience less bleeding and a speedier healing time with laser gum surgery in Pomona, NY. LANAP® is less traumatic than traditional surgery since the laser used in the procedure provides a more conservative treatment than the traditional surgery used for treating gum disease.
A: Laser treatment promotes speedier gum healing with its minimally invasive technique. LANAP®'s methods reduce the gum line recession often experienced in traditional surgery techniques. The laser treatment helps save healthy teeth while promoting bone regeneration around the teeth.
