Your mother was right. You need to take care of your gums. Lack of preventive measures may lead to serious oral health issues such as gum disease and may adversely affect your overall health. Fortunately, in the event of developing a serious periodontal condition, there are advanced treatment options available to resolve such conditions. At South Florida Periodontics & Dental Implants, we offer cutting-edge alternatives to traditional gum surgery, most notably the LANAP® protocol. Help us celebrate National Dental Hygiene Awareness Month by identifying your candidacy for this innovative treatment.  

Less Pain, More Gain

The LANAP® represents a technology heralded by patients and practitioners alike, as a major breakthrough in the dental industry—and it is easy to see why. The following are key advantages of this treatment method:  

 ·         It is minimally invasive and does not require any incisions or stitches
 ·         There is less discomfort with the procedure and many patients do not require post-operative medications
 ·         The technology strategically targets bacteria only, leaving healthy gums intact
 ·         The procedure preserves your teeth and even induces bone tissue regeneration
 ·         The recovery time is relatively fast for oral surgery
 ·         Patients often resume normal activities or return to work within a day
 ·         Little to no gum recession results from the procedure, which may be a side effect of conventional surgery
 ·         It is the only laser gum procedure that is cleared by the Food and Drug Administration
