It is not uncommon for patients with periodontal disease to avoid gum surgery out of a fear of pain and discomfort. Long surgeries and lengthy recovery periods also add to the stigma that surrounds the procedure. Luckily, patients of Dr. David Edelson can now receive laser gum surgery inPlainville, CT. New procedures, such as the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®), offer a less invasive and minimally painful alternative to traditional gum surgery.
Whereas traditional gum surgery uses a scalpel to cut away tissue and remove bacteria, LANAP® uses the PerioLase® MVP-7™ to vaporize tissue and eliminate the infection in a manner that is minimally painful. Additionally, the laser is able to identify diseased tissue based on color and tint. This means that it does not harm bone, teeth, or healthy tissue, resulting in a significantly smaller chance of inflicting harm to these areas.
