Gum surgery for advanced periodontal disease may make you nervous if you worry about going under the knife. Today’s advancements in dental technology have now made it possible to get your diseased gums treated using a high tech laser technique called LANAP® laser gum surgery. Dr. Joseph Gaspari is an experienced provider who specializes in this popular procedure. Gaspari Family Dental Care treats gum disease in Bethlehem, PA, so patients can take advantage of the benefits of this incredible technology. Here are some ways LANAP® may be able to help you.

1. Little Discomfort

What many people love about LANAP® is the fact that it is much less painful than many other types of surgery. Laser surgery does not require the use of a scalpel, so no painful incisions will be made along your gums. Instead, the powerful laser does all of the work to help restore your gums.

2. Quick Recovery

This therapy also gives patients a much quicker recovery time after the surgery. Instead of having to take additional time off to recover at home, most people are able to go to work the next day. Since you only need local anesthesia for this procedure, you are also able to drive home on your own.

3. Improved Oral Health

LANAP® surgery is also most beneficial to your oral health. When diseased, bacteria filled tissue is removed from your gums, you could look forward to experiencing fewer health problems and reduce instances of other infections related to your teeth.

4. Reduced Risk of Tooth Loss

The last big benefit of this procedure is it may be able to greatly reduce the chance of experiencing tooth loss. If you want to keep your own teeth for as long as possible, this may be a viable solution.
