It’s estimated that as many as 75-80% of adults have some form of gum disease. Patients who need advanced treatment, though, may feel wary about seeking the treatment they need. In many cases, advanced gum disease therapy involves treatment with a scalpel and sutures—but not at our Cumming dental office.
Dentistry at Windermere uses FDA-approved LANAP - laser gum therapy to treat advanced cases of gum disease. LANAP - Laser gum therapy is a no-scalpel, no-suture alternative to traditional methods, meaning patients can receive the treatment they need in a more comfortable, less invasive manner. And because LANAP - laser gum therapy actually promotes regeneration, patients can also look forward to a much shorter recovery time.
If you have been diagnosed with gum disease, schedule an appointment with one of our dentists. Gum disease has been proven to affect not just oral health but also problems in the rest of the body, including heart attacks, strokes, Alzheimer’s, and pregnancy complications.
