Getting healthy gums back does not have to mean going through a painful surgery anymore. Get your gum disease under control with laser gum therapy. With the LANAP procedure, you can go through a noninvasive gum surgery to bring back your oral health.

Gum disease is experienced by a lot of the population. People do not realize how serious gum disease can become when not treated. Identification is the first step to understanding gum disease. If you are experiencing symptoms of red and inflamed gums, bleeding gums, sensitivity to temperatures, you should seek dental assistance.

If you don’t treat gum disease quickly, the disease can turn into periodontitis. At this stage, your gums get to a worsened state, which can cause gaps between the teeth, and those gaps can become infected. If you don’t treat the periodontitis, you risk having loss of gums, teeth, and can cause permanent damage.

There are precautions you can take to avoid gum disease as much as possible. Rinsing your mouth after meals allows for bacteria to be halted in growth, as well as making sure food particles are rinsed away. Brushing and flossing your teeth is also essential to maintaining good oral and gum health. It is possible if you do have gum disease, it is hereditary so make sure you know your family dental history.

If you happen to have gum disease, LANAP is a good option for you. LANAP is minimally invasive and the procedure destroys bacteria and dead tissue in the mouth. The laser thoroughly cleans any diseased areas, and prevents infections from forming. Because it is minimally invasive, the healing time is much faster than traditional gum surgery. Benefits to LANAP include:

            -reduced bleeding

            -less inflammation

            -little to no gum recession

            -and minimal discomfort

If you are displaying signs of gum disease, you should consult with your dentist, as soon as possible to have the issue rectified. Consulting with your doctor on if LANAP is a procedure that fits your symptoms will be important; and of course, the earlier the disease is caught, the easier it is to fix.
