Dr. Roman Shlafer is a dentist who offers patients laser gum surgery in Farmington, MI. Of the millions who suffer each year, few actually seek gum disease treatment. This is dangerous because not only can gum disease harm your teeth and gums, it can lead to more serious illnesses. Without gum disease treatment, patients may experience further complications such as heart disease, pancreatic cancer, diabetes, and low birth weight in their offspring. Luckily there is no need to fear gum disease treatment anymore. A new procedure known as the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) eliminates the need for cutting and stitching tissue. With LANAP® gum disease treatment, there is less pain and less bleeding than with previous, outdated methods. Finally, patients can seek treatment without fear of all the negative side effects.
LANAP® is a form of laser gum surgery that does not cause harm to any healthy tissue. Traditional methods of gum disease treatment use scalpels to cut away diseased tissue and often leave behind lots of collateral damage. Laser gum surgery is a much less invasive option. We are now able to remove bacteria with a highly selective laser that does not harm the bone or the healthy tissue. Because of this, there is less pain during and after the procedure. In fact, patients who receive laser gum surgery often do not need pain medication afterward.
The secret to the success of LANAP® laser gum surgery is the PerioLase® MVP-7™. This is a highly intelligent laser that is able to differentiate between healthy and diseased tissue. With the PerioLase® MVP-7™, we can remove bacteria from the area without harming healthy gum tissue. LANAP® is the only FDA cleared method of laser gum surgery on the market. It is also the only laser gum surgery that has been proven effective through years of scientific studies. To put it simply, LANAP® laser gum surgery is the highest quality gum disease treatment on the market. If preserving the health of your teeth and gums is important, then laser gum surgery is for you.
