Gum disease treatment can be done today in a minimally invasive, maximally effective way, with dental lasers. In this video Dr. Joseph Nemeth, a Periodontist in Michigan discusses LANAP, and how we have been able to help our patients save loose teeth which would have otherwise been lost to periodontal disease. When you have gum disease, you start to lose the bone that supports the teeth. Periodontitis is the #1 cause of tooth loss so if we can treat gum disease, often times we can save loose teeth. There are many benefits to laser gum treatment. One of the benefits is avoiding cutting infected gum tissue away and sometimes we can achieve bone regeneration or bone growth. We cannot count on predictable bone growth. However, in many cases we have been able to regrow bone in the jaw and save teeth that are loose because of gum disease. Periodontitis is a silent killer. When you have gum disease, often times you don’t even know it. Sometimes, you can’t tell by looking at your teeth and gums. That’s why we look at the x-rays to examine the true damage occurring underneath the surface.
