Our Precision Gum Disease Treatment

As one of the most technologically advanced dental practices in Arlington, TX, DFW Implant Center is proud to offer Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure (known as LANAP®) for patients suffering from advanced stages of gum disease. LANAP is an FDA-approved laser treatment for periodontitis, which many dental patients do not even realize they have until it’s too late. If left untreated, periodontitis (inflammation of the gums) can lead to severe oral and general health complications.

LANAP represents the future of gum disease treatment, as it affords patients a faster, gentler, more effective form of periodontitis treatment. LANAP is also less painful than other gum disease treatments and data is showing that it is a more successful treatment option compared to traditional invasive approaches. LANAP does not use exogenous materials (i.e., growth factors, bone grafting or biologics), and it is quickly becoming a standard protocol in terms of gum disease treatment, as it targets the source of inflammation without damaging or removing healthy gum tissue.

Dental Bridges: Replace a Missing Tooth

Few people understand the importance of soft gum tissue when it comes to oral health. In addition to providing structural support for teeth and facial bone structures, the gums act as a biological barrier against invasion of foreign bacteria. Gingivitis, which is the earliest stage of gum disease, occurs when bacteria build up between the teeth, leading to periodontal pockets and eventually, full blown inflammation of the gums. Practicing quality oral hygiene is crucial in order to avoid early stages of gum disease; however, aside from poor oral hygiene, other factors can lead to gum inflammation, including:

Quality Gum Health Leads to Quality Overall Health

In the event of poor oral hygiene, plaque begins to build up and accumulate on and in-between the teeth. Eventually, this plaque solidifies into tartar, which releases the active bacteria that leads to early stages of gum disease. If these early stages of gum disease are left untreated, the gums will begin to separate and actually pull away from the tooth, forming periodontal pockets. These bacteria-filled pockets can lead to advanced stages of periodontitis, which will eventually damage and deteriorate bone and connective tissue in the oral cavity.

Advanced Laser Therapy for Severe Gum Disease

Fortunately, even the most advanced stages of gum disease are treatable with modern approaches like LANAP. If you are experiencing inflammation of the gums, we strongly suggest calling our office today and scheduling a LANAP consultation with our periodontist, Dr. Farhad E. Boltchi. The earlier you get started on treatment, the less likely you are to experience progressive oral disease related to chronic gum inflammation. Dr. Boltchi uses Periolase for LANAP gum disease treatments, which allows for a minimally invasive periodontal flap to enable access under the periosteum, and directly to bone for an ostectomy and/or osteotomy. With this advanced LANAP protocol, Dr. Boltchi can actually promote jawbone restoration and healing in areas that have been severely affected by gum disease. This is the main reason why laser treatment for gum surgery is far preferred compared to traditional cut-and-sew approaches.
