Three out of every four people have gum disease and for many, it goes untreated. In its early stages, gum disease manifests in symptoms such as red, inflamed gums that may bleed when flossing and brushing. As the disease progresses, you may experience receding gums, loose teeth, and even bone loss. Many people allow their periodontal disease to go untreated due to the fear of pain of gum surgery. Now, however, Dr. Knellinger offers an innovative laser gum surgery that can help to eliminate the bacteria that cause your periodontal disease and its symptoms without the use of scalpels or sutures.
Why is Laser Gum Surgery Performed by a Palm Harbor Dentist?
Palm Harbor Dentistry offers the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) to treat periodontal disease and the symptoms including inflammation, bleeding, bad breath, and loose teeth. LANAP® is performed by our Palm Harbor dentist because of the additional benefits it provides our patients. Laser gum surgery can successfully treat gum disease and also help to reverse its effects. Patients with loose teeth and bone loss who have this laser procedure by our Palm Harbor dentist may be able to save their teeth and return their gums to a healthy state.
Research has shown that the timely and effective treatment of periodontal disease by our Palm Harbor dentist may be helpful for patients who suffer from conditions that may be negatively impacted by this insidious oral infection, such as those with diabetes, heart disease, and pancreatic cancer.
