Save Your Teeth and Rejuvenate Your Smile With LANAP
Bleeding gums? Loose teeth? Sensitivity when you eat or drink? Gum disease is an infection that develops around your gums. Over time, this causes periodontal pockets to form along your gum and jawbone, damaging your mouth structure and causing bone loss. If you’re like many patients, you may have gum disease but not know it. That’s understandable because gingivitis, the first stage of gum disease, can quickly progress without any symptoms. Or maybe you started googling and searching for periodontists near you when you noticed blood on your toothbrush.
Either way, it’s better to be safe than lose your teeth. So you should get to a periodontist or specialized dentist for a checkup and receive treatment as soon as possible. Without gum disease treatment, you may develop severe periodontitis, resulting in tooth loss and serious health complications like heart disease and diabetes.
Avion Dental offers Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP), your solution to gum disease. Dr. Robert Kim, our experience LANAP dentist in Chino Hills, CA, uses a powerful dental laser to remove damaged soft tissue and bacteria from your gums.
The Key To Successful Gum Disease Treatment
Gum disease is preventable and treatable with regular oral hygiene routine and expert dental care from a periodontist or LANAP dentist like Dr. Kim. In fact, periodontitis is treatable with LANAP laser gum disease surgery, depending on the details of your condition. Although severe cases are treatable, there is a lot more involved in periodontitis treatment in order to get rid of extensive infection.
If you’ve experienced any of the symptoms of gum disease listed below, you should contact Avion Dental for more information about treatment options, like LANAP in Chino Hills, CA.
Experiencing These Gum Disease Symptoms?
LANAP Vs. LAPIP
You already know how LANAP works, but you may have heard of another procedure—Laser-Assisted Peri-Implantitis Procedure. LAPIP is a new FDA-cleared laser therapy that treats peri-implantitis, which is inflammation and infection of the tissue around failing dental implants. LAPIP specifically targets and removes infected tissue while leaving healthy tissue unharmed, which helps promote healing.
So, what’s the difference between LANAP and LAPIP? Both procedures use lasers to target and remove diseased tissue, but LANAP is specifically for treating periodontitis while LAPIP is for peri-implantitis. Both procedures are minimally invasive and promote healing of the soft tissue and bone.
LANAP & LAPIP: Treating Gum Disease with Laser Therapy
We use state-of-the-art technology to treat periodontitis and peri-implantitis before gum infections progress to serious systemic health concerns. Dr. Kim will create a customized treatment plan. On the day of your laser gum surgery, we’ll administer oral sedation to ensure a pain-free procedure, which lasts around an hour. Our LAPIP & LANAP dentist then removes the diseased tissue and bacteria from the periodontal pockets and gumline.
This process promotes healing, bone regeneration, and tissue reattachment. Unlike traditional gum disease surgery, you should recover from LANAP & LAPIP within 24 hours. Mild periodontitis can be treated in as little as one to two treatments. However, you may have to undergo several procedures for more serious gum infections.
