Recent studies have shown a strong link between healthy gums and a healthy heart. In fact, you may be surprised to know that the build-up of plaque and bacteria on the teeth can be a good predictor of whether or not a person has heart disease. Luckily, periodontal professionals such as Dr. Michael Stypula are able to treat gum disease with a procedure called LANAP® that targets and destroys plaque and bacteria. If you are suffering from periodontal or gum disease, consider having laser gum surgery in Pittsburgh PA with Dr. Stypula.

What Is LANAP®?

In the past, dental patients suffering from gum disease were forced to undergo treatments that were painful and invasive to stop the disease from spreading throughout the body. Often dental surgery was recommended to remove the affected gums or extract troublesome teeth. But with recent advances in dental technology, periodontists like Dr. Stypula are now able to use laser gum therapy to rid the mouth of gum disease. The LANAP® procedure is cleared by the FDA. It has been proven effective in numerous studies both domestic and international. Here are just a few of the benefits to LANAP®:

  • Less pain and discomfort
  • Less swelling and bleeding
  • Quick recovery time
  • Minimal gum recession
  • Safe and effective
  • Saves the natural teeth
  • Regenerates bone tissue

LANAP® offers patients and periodontists predictable results that are long-term. Using laser gum therapy, no incisions are required. The procedure is minimally invasive and only requires a local anesthetic. It’s easier than ever to treat gum disease.
