Around 75% of adult tooth loss is caused by periodontal (gum) disease, and very often, this could have been avoided by timely laser periodontal treatment.
In recent decades, lasers have made a big entrance into all areas of medical care, including into periodontics. And while more traditional methods of periodontal treatment still have their place, laser periodontal treatment has big advantages over other options in many dental situations.
In the last couple of decades, huge strides have been made in laser periodontal treatment, and today one periodontal laser has accomplished what can only be called a revolution in how periodontal therapy is done.
If you could have your first choice, it would be to never experience gum disease in any of its stages and to never need any form of periodontal treatment.
But despite your best efforts at prevention, it's always possible to still end up in need of periodontal treatment. And typically, LANAP (laser periodontal therapy) stands out as the overall most beneficial treatment option.
The majority of US adults have at least some form and stage of gum disease. Gingivitis, the earliest stage of gum disease, can usually be 100% reversed with the proper periodontal treatment and an improved oral hygiene regimen.
