Laser Technology is the Modern Solution for Gum Disease
Gum disease, or periodontal disease, is a serious infection that affects the gums, teeth, and surrounding jaw bone. If left untreated, it can lead to tooth loss and research has linked it to other systemic issues, including heart disease, certain cancers and stroke. Recent advancements in dental technology provide a minimally-invasive and virtually pain-free solution with laser gum therapy. Dr. Edward Segal has completed the advanced training and certifications required to perform the minimally invasive LANAP® protocol for treating your gum disease.
Experience the Benefits of the LANAP® Protocol
Unlike traditional osseous surgery to treat gum disease, LANAP® does not require any scalpels, incisions, or sutures. With LANAP®, Dr. Segal uses the PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser and gently waves it over areas of infected gum tissue and bacteria to eliminate infection and restore health. The laser can reach below the gumline without cutting the gums, and only targets diseased areas, so healthy tissue remains unharmed. The procedure is minimally-invasive, provides increased comfort for you, and does not require any incisions or sutures.
Benefits of Laser Gum Therapy:
Gum disease treated in one or two visits
Increased patient comfort
Little to no tooth root sensitivity
No need for scalpels or sutures
Quick recovery time
Improve Your Oral Health with Gentle Laser Procedures
Becoming certified in the LANAP® Protocol requires extensive training through lectures and hands-on patient treatment. Dr. Segal combines his 20+ years of experience in periodontology with this training to bring you the most advanced techniques for treating your gum disease. If you are concerned about undergoing traditional osseous surgery, then laser gum therapy may be right for you. Let Dr. Segal provide you with the comfort and care your smile deserves.
