It’s never a good thing to develop gingivitis or any other kind of gum disease, but if you do, there are treatments that patients have identified as better or easier to tolerate. It’s important that you know about them so you can get the relief you need to gain the upper hand against this disease. One of those procedures is LANAP laser gum treatment, and for many patients it is the turning point in their process.
Why Laser Gum Treatment Is So Effective
There are a few different ways to clean the infection and provide patients with the opportunity to move into repairing tissue and working to prevent a recurrence of symptoms. They’re all effective, but older methods involve a surgical intervention that sometimes takes portions of healthy tissue with the infected portions. This is done to ensure the entire infection is cleaned, because of the margin of error involved with traditional surgical procedures. Laser gum treatment cleans the infected tissue without taking any healthy tissue because the lasers are calibrated precisely to destroy just the infection and the tissue it has claimed.
Additional Benefits of Laser Gum Treatment
Patients also report these benefits when they choose LANAP to treat gum disease:
• Minimal discomfort during and after the procedure
• Unbelievably fast recovery due to the negligible pain involved
• Repeatable should the infection recur
• Safe and effective
With all these advantages over older methods of treatment, it’s no wonder so many patients recommend it to others who are suffering with the same symptoms. Dr. Chertok recommends it for those reasons, too.
