Laser vs Osseous Surgery in Montgomery, AL
Laser Gum Surgery vs. Traditional Gum Surgery Montgomery, AL

LANAP® is the only laser gum surgery on the market that uses the PerioLase® MVP-7™. By using this innovative new technology, we are able to detect and remove only the diseased tissue from the area while leaving the bone and the healthy tissue unharmed. This makes laser gum surgery less invasive and less painful than traditional gum surgery. LANAP® is also the only FDA cleared method of laser gum surgery available, and its effectiveness has been proved through years of scientific research. LANAP® is widely regarded as the highest standard in maintaining gum health worldwide.

LANAP® offers several benefits over traditional gum disease treatment:

Laser Gum Surgery vs. Traditional Gum Surgery Montgomery, AL
  • Less pain and less discomfort – Laser gum surgery does not involve any cutting or stitching of gums. A laser will selectively remove bacteria and diseased tissue only; resulting in less pain and less discomfort.
  • Less downtime – Because LANAP® is less invasive, patients experience little post-operative pain. There is rarely a need for prescription pain medication, which means that patients can continue with their daily routines on the very same day.
  • Faster healing – The laser is used to cauterize any wounds and form blood clots. This makes the blood cling to the surface of the tooth and form a tight seal, thus creating a safe environment for healing to begin.
  • Little to no recession of the gum line – Laser gum surgery leaves a larger portion of the gum tissue intact. This means that there is less recession of the gum line than with traditional gum surgery.
  • Bone regeneration – LANAP® laser gum surgery actually stimulates bone and tissue regrowth. This can save teeth that may otherwise have needed to be removed.
If saving teeth and maintaining optimum gum health is important to you, then laser gum surgery is something to consider. Although both methods provide great results, laser gum surgery is more predictable and results in overall better gum health.
