Periolase Dental LASER/Preventative Periodontal Treatment
Periodontal disease effects, to one degree or another, the majority of adults in the United States. It may range from mild inflammation (gingivitis) to more serious forms of periodontal infection. It is a disease with many factors. The primary common factor is microbial – that is, bacteria and other microorganisms. Other factors such as body chemistry, systemic state of health, nutrition and lifestyle factors are also important. Periodontal disease has been shown to be linked as a strong risk factor for heart disease, diabetes and other systemic problems. That means that treating periodontal disease effectively is more important than ever.
We offer holistic, non-surgical, preventative treatment that involves denaturing, then removing bacterial deposits from the root surfaces and disinfecting the pockets so healing can occur. This procedure is combined with an individualized assessment and treatment plan aimed at improving your body’s healing potential.
For the more advanced periodontal disease treatments, we are proud to be the only general dental office in Northern Arizona to be offering the Periolase laser assisted new attachment protocol or LANAP. An FDA-cleared laser treatment offering a less painful, more successful treatment alternative to conventional periodontal surgery. LANAP is the only scientifically, research proven methodology that results in true periodontal regeneration, new bone growth and gum tissue reattachment. The LANAP treatment is one of the most successful protocols in treating gum disease because it can target the source of the inflammation without hurting or removing any healthy gum tissue. It also slows or stops attachment loss and decreases pocket depth, allowing the body to recover from the chronic infection without the need for a scalpel or sutures. In other words, NO CUT OR SEW!!
No Cut, No Sew, No Fear
Originally developed as a simple communication to help patients understand the differences between the LANAP protocol and traditional periodontal surgery, the No Cut, No Sew, No Fear logo helps educate patients and to reduce the fear associated with gum surgery.
