Restore Healthy Gums with Laser-Based Care

Gum disease often goes unnoticed until it has progressed to a point of putting you at high risk for losing teeth. We have found that a lot of patients have been experiencing advanced gum disease long before they visit our practice for gum disease treatment in Spring Hill, TN. LANAP® laser dentistry provides an efficient, more reliable and gentler method for treating periodontal disease. In fact, this treatment is the only evidence-based, FDA-approved method that results in true periodontal regeneration, new bone growth and gum tissue reattachment. At Dentistry by Design, Dr. Richard Robinette uses LANAP in Spring Hill, TN to promote bone regeneration around your teeth with the ultimate goal of saving them. The protocol targets and kills the bacteria that cause gum disease, removes damaged gum tissue and reattaches healthy tissue to the tooth root surface. Unlike traditional osseous surgery, the sophisticated LANAP PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser allows our team to provide minimally invasive laser dentistry in Spring Hill, TN, so you don’t have to worry about sensitive, painful or receding gums any longer.

What is Gum Disease?

We believe patient education is of the utmost importance. Understanding gum disease and its impact on your health is essential because it allows you to make informed decisions. Gum tissue is vital to your oral health because it supports your teeth and jaw, while also keeping out harmful bacteria. The first stage of gum disease is called gingivitis, which is gum inflammation caused by bacteria in your mouth. Regular professional dental cleanings and good oral hygiene can often reverse early gum disease.

While the most common cause of gum disease is poor oral hygiene, other risk factors include:

Take Care of Your Gums to Protect Your Health

Poor oral hygiene allows plaque to build up on your teeth, which can then harden into tartar. This releases bacterial toxins that cause gum irritation and inflammation. If left untreated, your gums gradually pull away from your teeth and periodontal pockets form.  As bacteria invades these pockets, infection can occur, damaging your bone and connective tissue. Gum disease is progressive, meaning the damage to your gum tissue, bone and teeth gets worse over time without treatment, and unfortunately, you may lose teeth as a result.

Treating Gum Disease with Laser Therapy

The good news is that we have a solution! If you’re experiencing symptoms of gum disease, we encourage you to schedule an appointment as soon as possible for LANAP in Spring Hill, TN. Unlike traditional osseous surgery to treat gum disease, LANAP doesn’t require scalpels, incisions or sutures, so the risk of infection during recovery is minimal. After numbing the area with local anesthetic, Dr. Richard Robinette waves the PerioLase MVP-7 laser over areas of your infected gum tissue to eliminate infection and harmful bacteria, then closes the gap between your teeth and gums so bacteria can’t enter. Most patients at Dentistry by Design choose LANAP because it offers many advantages over traditional approaches. In fact, even patients that avoided dental treatment or experienced problems with traditional surgery in the past are willing to undergo LANAP gum surgery. Studies show that several months after LANAP treatment, most patients see a significant reduction in the depth of their periodontal pockets.
