There are many gum disease treatments that may be administered by Dr. Gutt but it is also important to address the conditions that precipitate periodontal disease.
Factors that may increase your risk of needing gum disease treatment by a periodontist:
- Diabetes: diabetes can be a factor in the advancement of gum disease.
- Smoking: Tobacco use raises the likelihood that you will need gum disease treatment by a periodontist.
- Medication: Some medications may increase your chances for gum disease.
- Pregnancy: Changing hormone levels may lead to a visit with a periodontist.
If gum disease treatment by Dr. Gutt is necessary, LANAP® is an excellent option for anyone who needs gum disease treatment, but especially for those who are poor candidates for traditional surgery. Due to its minimally invasive nature, almost anyone can realize the benefits of LANAP® for gum disease treatment performed by Dr. Gutt.
Who Is a Candidate for LANAP® Gum Disease Treatment Performed by a Periodontist?
Patients who have LANAP® for gum disease treatment find that there is less bleeding, faster healing times, and little discomfort. There is no cutting with scalpels and no stitching needed for laser gum surgery, unlike traditional surgery for gum disease treatment. During the procedure, Dr. Gutt uses the laser to selectively target and destroy bacteria and diseased tissue. Healthy gum tissue remains intact and gum recession is staved off. This is not the case with traditional surgery for gum disease treatment, as healthy tissue must be cut to access the bacteria and plaque. LANAP® is proven to incite the regenerative process for bone, thereby saving teeth that may not have had a chance otherwise.
- Patients taking medications
- Anyone apprehensive about surgery
- Patients with moderate to advanced gum disease
- People who cannot afford long recovery time
