Dr. J. Brent Bartruff offers gum disease treatment in Fort Walton Beach, FL using the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure. LANAP® is a gum disease treatment option surpassing traditional treatment options due to its effectiveness and comfort for patients.
The benefits of LANAP® over traditional treatment options are many. Patients who receive gum disease treatment with LANAP® can expect:
• Faster healing time
• Minimal discomfort
• Little to no gum recession
• Bone regeneration
• Less inflammation
• Saving teeth!
Gum disease is a serious condition that can cause gum recession, loose teeth, and even tooth loss. Most damage from gum disease cannot be reversed, but it can be stalled. Loose teeth do not have to result in tooth loss. The disease is manageable through treatment.
Early detection and treatment are key. Many people delay treatment, but with LANAP® there is no need. The procedure is minimally invasive and does not require cutting or stitches!
The minimally invasive nature of the procedure promotes faster healing time with minimal discomfort and less downtime. The laser light used in the procedure destroys damaged and diseased tissue, leaving healthy tissue behind. In traditional treatment options, abrasive tools such as a scalpel are required. Often, healthy tissue is inadvertently removed along with damaged tissue.
The extra trauma from abrasive tools usually requires pain medication during and after the procedure. With LANAP®, pain medication following the procedure is rare. Most people return to their daily activities the same day as receiving the treatment!
Unaffected healthy tissue also means little to no gum recession resulting from treatment. Traditional treatments can further gum recession, opening you up for reinfection, sensitivity, and the risk for loose teeth. Inflammation and bleeding during LANAP® is also significantly reduced.
LANAP® is also a scientifically proven protocol to regenerate bone around the teeth! Do not spend one more day suffering from gum disease. Call Dr. Bartruff now to receive gum disease treatment in Fort Walton Beach, FL.
