LANAP laser gum treatment is a new procedure that is gaining popularity as an alternative to traditional dental surgery procedures. Laser gum treatments involve using powerful lasers to remove plaque and tartar, as well as repair damage to the gums and eliminate periodontal disease. Unfortunately, many people haven’t learned about this exciting new treatment option, so they aren’t aware of the differences between LANAP laser gum treatment and traditional surgical options.
- Recovery Time
One of the important differences between the LANAP laser gum treatment and traditional dental surgery is recovery time. Instead of taking weeks and months, recovery from a laser gum treatment is only a matter of days.
Laser gum treatments are effective at treating a variety of dental issues, as opposed to traditional surgical options which are slightly more specialized procedures. In other words, most other surgical options only really target one problem at a time, unlike laser gum therapy.
- Post-Operative Complications
Swelling, bleeding and pain are often greatly reduced after a LANAP laser gum treatment, as opposed to traditional dental surgery. Additionally, any post-op complications that may arise after a laser gum treatment are more easily corrected than traditional surgical options, which may involve taking out stitches, re-doing bone grafts, or other painful procedures.
The LANAP laser gum treatment truly is the wave of the future in dental surgery and the treatment of gum disease. Many recent studies indicate that gum disease can even lead to heart attacks, strokes, and diabetes, among other serious health problems, so diagnosing and treating gum disease could save more than your smile.
