LANAP®, performed by Dr. Mark I. Gutt, is an excellent gum disease treatment option. Gum disease has become quite common and affects millions of Americans. Meanwhile, new research has linked gum disease to heart disease, ischemic stroke, respiratory disease, and diabetes. Many do not realize that they have gum disease, as they are unfamiliar with the symptoms.
Signs That Indicate the Need for Gum Disease Treatment
If you are experiencing these symptoms, contact Dr. Gutt to discuss gum disease treatment options. In its earliest stage, gum disease is reversible without aggressive gum disease treatment. Dr. Gutt can advise you of your treatment options.
During the gum disease treatment, Dr. Gutt uses a pulsed laser to target and remove bacteria and diseased tissue while leaving healthy tissue unharmed. There are no scalpels or sutures associated with this procedure. Dr. Gutt uses a laser to create a clotting effect for minimal bleeding and presses the gum tissue to the tooth surface to enable proper healing. LANAP® actually stimulates regeneration of connective tissue and bone. There is very little discomfort or downtime with this gum disease treatment and no contraindications. The procedure is safe for patients who take medication.

LANAP® has a proven success rate. In fact, many patients who were not a candidate for traditional surgical gum disease treatment were told by their periodontist that they could undergo LANAP® as it is considered minimally invasive. The shorter procedure times and recovery times lessen the impact of having gum disease treatment administered by your periodontist.
LANAP® has many advantages over traditional surgical gum disease treatment. The LANAP® protocol is FDA cleared and a safe, effective gum disease treatment. Ask Dr. Mark L. Gutt about gum disease treatment in Miami Beach, FL!
