Minimally-Painful, Effective Laser Treatment
If you have been diagnosed with gum disease you should seek treatment promptly to reduce the risk of further damage to the teeth, gums, supporting tissues, and your overall health. Many patients put off treatment out of fear of surgery and lengthy recovery times. Here, Dr. Sawan Malik offers the LANAP® protocol, a laser gum disease treatment option that does not use scalpel or stitches. It is a less invasive alternative to traditional osseous surgery and a more comfortable option for patients. It is effective for treating periodontal disease and peri-implantitis (an infection near a dental implant).
