Over 50% of American adults have gum disease – an infection below the gum line. Gum disease is linked to several health problems – from heart disease, stroke, diabetes and pre-term babies – but only a small percentage of these adults get the treatment they need. Traditional gum disease treatment options involve cutting the gum tissue or extracting the teeth.
At our Rockville Centre dental office, we are proud to offer the latest technology to help treat gum disease with NO cutting, NO sewing, and faster healing.
The LANAP® protocol uses the specific wavelength PerioLase® MVP-7™ dental laser to vaporize bacteria deep within the pockets of the gums while leaving healthy tissue intact.
The accuracy of the LANAP laser also means that it is safe for patients with health concerns, such as diabetes, HIV, hemophilia, or people taking medicines like Plavix or aspirin.
