When patients have LANAP® gum disease treatment in Raleigh, Durham & Chapel Hill, NC, they experience less pain and discomfort than patients undergoing traditional gum disease surgery. This is due, in part, to the fact that LANAP® utilizes laser technology instead of scalpels and sutures. With LANAP®, your healthy tissue remains intact. This also prevents the unfortunate gum recession that can result from traditional gum disease surgery when healthy gum must be cut to gain access to the bacteria that cause gum disease. Surgery, in this manner, can result in gum recession of up to 15 millimeters.
The laser eliminates the bacteria in your gum pockets immediately and therefore, the inflammation caused by the infection will be reduced by up to 90% following your first session. This promotes the faster healing times typically associated with laser gum disease treatment in Raleigh, Durham & Chapel Hill, NC.
