Gum Disease and Laser Dentistry

Gum disease plagues nearly half of the U.S. population and while many do not realize they have the condition, others avoid treatment out of embarrassment or fear of invasive procedures. Without treatment, gum disease can spread and cause irreversible damage to the teeth, bones and tissues, and can result in tooth loss. Recently, gum disease has also been linked to serious systemic conditions such as heart disease, stroke and diabetes.

Traditional treatment options, such as osseous surgery, involve cutting and stitching of the gums, resulting in pain and lengthy recovery times. Dr. Paresh C. Naran has incorporated high tech laser techniques in his practice to treat gum disease in a less invasive manner, with the LANAP® protocol.

Signs and symptoms of gum disease
  • Bleeding when brushing or flossing
  • Bad breath (halitosis)
  • Receding gums
  • Loose teeth

Peri-implantitis and Laser Dentistry

Dental implants are highly regarded as successful replacement options for missing teeth. While they have a high success rate, some people experience complications due to inflammation, or peri-implantitis. Peri-implantitis is inflammation and infection of the tissues that surround an implant, and like gum disease must be treated to avoid painful and costly repercussions. Foregoing treatment can result in bone loss and severe infection.

To treat peri-implantitis, Dr. Shilpa Koneruemploys help from the LAPIP® laser protocol. This protocol uses the same laser proven to treat gum disease and is highly successful in reducing inflammation, removing bacteria and restoring health.

Signs and symptoms of peri-implantitis
  • Bleeding Gums
  • Soreness
  • Redness
  • Swelling Around the implant
