LANAP and LAPIP Laser Gum Treatment Quincy MA
Treat your recessed gums with Lanap and Lapip. Before laser gum treatment, a patient needed sutures to restore the gum tissue. Fortunately, Lanap and Lapip heal gums more efficiently and less invasively. The laser treatment precisely removes bacteria and dead tissue along the gum line. Lanap treats natural teeth while Lapip treats dental implant areas. Gums left untreated can cause tooth loss and dental implant failure.
Periodontal disease is a progressive gum infection. Contact us if you notice any of these signs:
- Chronic bad breath
- Red or swollen gums
- Bleeding gums
- Loose teeth
- Receding gums
How is laser gum treatment better than conventional surgery?
Patients prefer Lanap and Lapip because of the quicker healing process. Since the laser treatment only focuses on bacteria and dead tissue, gums heal faster. There is also less pain and less inflamation. Traditional gum surgery can take up to 4 weeks to recover while laser gum treatment is usually 24 hours.
Does my dental insurance cover the treatment?
Gum disease treatment can be covered by dental insurance. During your consultation, we’ll review your coverage and confirm.
