Less pain. Less Discomfort. The laser alternative to traditional gum surgery.
Laser Gum Treatment
LANAP Laser Treatment Vista, CA
The effects of gum disease can reach far beyond your mouth; periodontal disease has been linked to stroke, heart disease, diabetes, and low birth weight in babies. It can also increase your risk of pancreatic cancer by as much as 64 percent.
Gum disease affects millions, yet many people postpone treatment due to the invasiveness of traditional treatments.
One of the best treatments available is Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure or LANAP – a ground-breaking gum disease treatment that is minimally invasive, highly effective, and can assist with tooth loss prevention.
Dr. Valentina Obradovic was one of the very first dentists in Vista and San Diego to offer this procedure, and today Adriatic Dental performs this procedure multiple time per week.
Benefits of LANAP Over Traditional Gum Surgery
- Save Natural Teeth. The top reason patients choose laser gum surgery for Vista dental care is because of the laser’s ability (in many cases) to preserve natural teeth. With traditional surgery, teeth often must be removed to prevent the further spread of infection.
- Reduced Recession. Because traditional surgery uses a blade, your gum line can be reduced. The amount of reduction varies by patient, but traditional surgery can lower the gum line from as little as 2-4 mm all the way to 10-15 mm. Gum recession can detract from the aesthetics of a person’s smile as well as increase teeth’s sensitivity to cold and hot temperatures. LANAP® is designed to only target diseased tissue, leaving most of the tissue intact an reducing gum recession.
- Less Pain. Many people with gum disease postpone treatment because they dread the pain of traditional surgery. Since there is no cutting or suturing in LANAP®, patients report minimal pain. Pain medication is rarely prescribed, and patients can resume their daily activities fairly quickly following the procedure.
- Long-term Results. Although both treatments produce excellent long-term results, LANAP® has the advantage of greater predictability in regards to the connective reattachment of tissue and bone regeneration. The laser encourages regeneration by stimulating the bone surrounding the root of the tooth, often saving teeth that would have otherwise been removed. Oftentimes, patients who have undergone LANAP® continue improving as time goes on and Dr. Valentina Obradovic is able to reverse the effects of gum disease at the Vista dental practice.
