Periodontal disease is a severe condition that means infections and ongoing inflammation in the tissues that keep your teeth in place. Without treatment, you face tooth loss and systemic health complications. For example, periodontal disease has been linked to Alzheimer’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and heart complications, to name a few.
Your dentist in Brentwood, TN provides comprehensive treatment to stop the progression of periodontal disease, saving your teeth and lowering your risks for complications.
Periodontal surgery to clean or reshape tooth roots can be invasive, which is why we rely on LANAP surgery. Not only does it work for periodontal disease, but it promotes healing and a faster recovery time.
LANAP relies on precise lasers to treat specific areas of the gums and soft tissues. This means no cutting, no scalpels, and minimal bleeding. When surgery is minimally invasive, recovery is much faster and easier.
