Gum disease is a serious condition threatening both your oral and systemic health. Without treatment, the progressive disease leads to bone loss, tooth loss and a whole host of other health concerns. Traditional osseous gum surgery has proven effective, yet requires a more invasive approach to treating gum disease and repairing its destructive effects. Dr. Lindsay Eastman, however, offers a gentle, minimally invasive alternative to achieving periodontal health with the use of LANAP® laser gum surgery.

Advantages of LANAP® Laser Gum Surgery

  • Gentle and minimally invasive
  • Little to no gum recession results
  • Little to no pain or discomfort occurs
  • Body’s own tissues are used to promote healing
  • Return to normal routines the day after treatment
  • Helps avoid tooth loss due to periodontal disease

Comparing LANAP® Laser Gum Surgery and Osseous Gum Surgery

Gum Disease Treatment with LANAP® Laser Gum Surgery:

  • One to two visits required to complete treatment
  • No incisions or sutures are necessary
  • No contraindications for treatment
  • Faster healing time
  • Minimal post-op discomfort
  • Leaves healthy tissue intact
  • Encourages bone regeneration

Gum Disease Treatment with Osseous Surgery:

  • Multiple visits required to complete treatment
  • Requires the use of incisions and sutures
  • Contraindications may exist for those with certain medical conditions or who are taking certain medications
  • Healing time takes longer due to incisions
  • Post-op discomfort may need to be managed with medication
  • Must advance through healthy tissue to reach diseased areas
  • Procedure itself does not encourage bone regeneration, but a bone graft may be performed during osseous surgery
