Laser Assisted Gum Treatment
Also known as gum disease, periodontitis is a common dental health problem. Periodontitis is actually the second stage of gum disease, and calls for an immediate gum treatment procedure in order to avoid more serious consequences.
The major problems patients may suffer from when they have this disease result from the soft tissues of their gums being attacked, and leaving the tissue in a degenerative condition. These soft tissues are responsible for holding your teeth in the right place, so damage to them affects more than just the gums. While the disease can strike anyone, the group most at risk includes patients aged 30-40 years old.
Common causes of periodontitis include:
- Inappropriate oral hygiene;
- Eating unhealthy foods;
- Diabetes and/or genetics.
If you start suffering from such a disease, a gum treatment dentist on the Upper East Side may be a good solution to your problem. Dr. Lana Rozenberg is a proven expert in the field, and has extensive knowledge and experience suitable for dealing with these types of tooth problems.
Why Choose Laser Gum Treatment on the Upper East Side?
Laser gum treatment on the Upper East Side, Manhattan comes with several essential patient benefits, including short treatment times, better recovery, and other crucial factors that result in better dental health conditions, in the future. The main reasons for you to select dental laser gum treatment in NYC include the following:
- Minimum discomfort for patients – the procedure is absolutely painless. Forget about discomfort caused by drilling, and get your healthy teeth without the pain.
- Higher precision – modern equipment delivers pinpoint accuracy without the slightest risk of missing the target and damaging surrounding tissues.
- Fewer appointment – patients only need to make half the number of visits, compared to traditional treatments.
- No drilling – we eliminate the need for any dental drills, resulting in treatment without vibrations or pain.
Why LANAP is Better than Traditional Treatment?
Traditional dental treatments usually involve drilling, which can cause an uncomfortable amount of vibration for some patients. LANAP does not require any of that.
The average LANAP gum treatment cost may vary from $75 to $85, which is not much when it comes to healthy teeth and a beautiful smile. Other benefits include:
- Minimum Invasion – LANAP is a non-invasive procedure with no cutting or drilling.
- No Damage – the new advanced method prevents the slightest risk of damaging healthy surrounding tissues.
- Better Safety – the method is approved by the US FDA and is considered 100% safe for patients with other preexisting diseases, allergies, etc. This method also ensures no risk for reinfections.
How We Work
Here at Rozenberg Dental NYC, we implement the most advanced dental equipment in our clinic, including lasers. These are tuned at specific wavelengths, in order to make our procedures as precise and safe as possible. Lasers accurately target damaged tissues and remove all signs of disease effortlessly.
Laser precision is the major benefit that allows us to easily remove damage without doing any harm to healthy tissues. It results in better patient recovery and lower postoperative discomfort, with only a few days for full recovery.
What Will Happen If I Do Not Treat My Gum Disease?
Consequences of not removing plaque promptly can be rather serious, and may result in multiple bacteria infecting the tissue. If a patient avoids treatment for any reason, it could lead to the development of tartar, creating a rough surface for more plaque to be built, and more bacteria to breed inside. The cycle will keep on progressing over time, unless you opt for a LANAP procedure.
It’s common for patients to not even realize that they have the disease, to begin with, as it seldom comes with any pain or discomfort, unless it’s in the last stages of disease development. Some common gum disease symptoms include receding or swollen gums, bad taste or smell in the mouth, wobbly teeth, etc. Once you detect any of the above-mentioned symptoms, you need to consult a dentist.
How Long Does the Procedure Take?
The time usually varies from patient to patient, and may depend on various factors including the stage of the disease, infection severity, and other determining factors. As a rule, it takes between one to two days to complete the full treatment course, so two dentist visits will be enough. Our specialists will heal one side of your mouth during the first visit and the other side during the second visit.
When compared with traditional procedures, laser assisted treatment comes with some obvious advantages for patients. These include:
- Better recovery process;
- Less pain;
- Shorter treatment times;
- No drilling;
- Safety and precision.
Before & After Results
Before a patient completes the LANAP treatment, he or she may suffer from large gaps between the teeth, in addition to an anterior bite. 12mm pockets are another evidence of progressing gum disease. Laser assisted treatment makes it possible to reduce teeth pockets down to 3mm, after the first procedure. At the same time, lasers help to remove gaps between teeth, resulting in a perfect smile with no extractions.
