Laser Periodontal Therapy and Periodontal Disease
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with Periodontal (gum) Disease and been told that you need to have surgery, there is a Less Invasive, Less Painful Alternative – Laser Periodontal Treatment - LANAP
Laser Periodontal Treatment is about as easy as erasing a blackboard — there’s no cutting, no scraping and no suturing. Compared to traditional gum surgery, There is much less discomfort with LASER PERIODONTAL THERAPY.
It takes less time than traditional surgery. All it takes is two 2-hour visits to the dentist and two follow up visits. Traditional surgery requires four sessions of about one hour each, with subsequent visits for suture removal and additional check-ups.
LPT gives better, longer-lasting results. In fact, 98% of LPT treated patients remain stable after five years, while only 5% reportedly remain stable after surgery.
Dr Hood will probably recommend a soft diet for a day or two, and common sense should prevail, but in most cases, patients feel good enough to eat anything they want right after the procedure.
Following traditional surgery, recovery can take between to 2-4 weeks and during this time, patients can experience considerable pain, swelling, or bleeding and may also be restricted to liquid or soft diets. There is less than 24 hour recovery period, for LASER PERIODONTAL THERAPY so you may not lose time from work. It is safe for patients with certain health concerns such as diabetes, HIV, hemophilia, or those taking medications such as Coumadin or Cyclosporin.
