What Are My Options?
If you have been diagnosed with advanced gum disease, you might already be aware that your options for controlling its progression and saving your teeth are few and fairly invasive. Traditional forms of gum surgery, while effective, come with bleeding, pain, and a prolonged recovery period. Even when gum surgery removes the diseased tissue the procedure involves having to cut away healthy tissue as well, resulting in a necessary recession to control the bacteria.
Once periodontal disease in Traverse City, MI has progressed to this point, bone has been lost, compromising the stability of your remaining teeth. That bone will never regrow on its own, and your teeth may, in fact, be lost in the end. But there is hope for you with Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®)!
