Traditionally, periodontal infection may be treated with an invasive surgery involving scalpels and sutures. However, laser dentistry gives us a minimally invasive alternative to traditional gum surgery with the LANAP® laser protocol for treating periodontal disease.
LANAP® laser gum surgery gives our patients the advantage of a revolutionary and minimally invasive treatment that uses laser technology to remove diseased tissue and bacteria while leaving healthy tissue unharmed. Our specialized laser eradicates harmful bacteria in the pockets around teeth, facilitating healthy gum and bone tissue to regenerate in an environment that is free from disease. With minimally invasive laser dentistry, you can walk into our office, allow us to eradicate the active periodontal infection in your mouth, and walk out to continue your daily activities!
Our experienced team of periodontal specialists are pleased to provide laser dentistry to our patients for minimally invasive gum treatment. To learn more about gum surgery in Old Saybrook, CT and reserve your appointment, call our office today!
