Experience the Benefits of Laser Gum Surgery

Laser gum surgery offers you numerous benefits. Not only is it a minimally invasive treatment, but compared to traditional surgical methods, it also ensures your comfort, both during and after the procedure. The many other benefits of laser dentistry include:

Precision Treatment for Gum Disease and Failing Implants

Our laser gum surgery procedures, LANAP (Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure) and LAPIP (Laser-Assisted Peri-Implantitis Procedure), are advanced dental treatments to address gum disease and failing dental implants. In LANAP, a specialized laser targets and removes diseased gum tissue, bacteria, and calculus while preserving healthy tissue and promoting regeneration. LAPIP, on the other hand, focuses on treating peri-implantitis, an inflammatory condition affecting dental implants, by disinfecting the area around the implant and stimulating tissue regeneration.

Dr. Kwansoo Lee and Dr. Tate Masunaga are certified and trained to perform these procedures and continue education to ensure proficiency in handling laser technology and understanding the intricacies of periodontal and implant care. By employing LANAP and LAPIP techniques, we can provide minimally invasive yet highly effective solutions if you suffer from gum disease or implant complications, ultimately promoting oral health and preserving natural teeth and dental implants.

Explore Our Laser Gum Surgery Options

At Pacific NW Dental Center, we take great pride in offering a range of comprehensive dental services to meet all your needs. Our dental team can provide you with laser gum surgery to treat a variety of conditions from periodontal disease to a gummy smile to receding gums.

You may need tissue recontouring in preparation for the placement of a dental crown, bridge or restoration. This treatment will also help those suffering from a gummy smile. Our experienced cosmetic dentist Dr. Kwansoo Lee will use a laser to remove gum and bone tissue in targeted areas of your mouth, improving your oral health and creating a more balanced smile.

Periodontal disease can cause unsightly and painful receding gums. This condition can lead to tooth decay and increased sensitivity, and it can also negatively impact the way your smile looks. However, with the precision and accuracy of laser gum surgery, we can perform gingival grafting to restore your gums and oral health.

Also known as laser bacterial reduction (LBR), gum disease laser therapy is a quick and painless way to get rid of harmful bacteria, which will also keep them from spreading. You can have this treatment added to your routine professional cleaning, and it will only take 5-10 minutes. The best part is that you’ll not only enjoy improved oral health, but your immune system will get a boost, too!

With LAPT, we use a laser to target and remove damaged tissue and bacteria from periodontal pockets, caused by gum disease. Unlike traditional gum disease surgery, you won’t have to endure the pain and discomfort of incisions and sutures. Dr. Lee has extensive training and experience utilizing this technique. After your treatment, you’ll enjoy a speedy recovery and healthy, attractive gums.

Failing Dental Implants

Failing dental implants often occur due to various factors such as peri-implantitis, inadequate osseointegration, or mechanical complications. Peri-implantitis, characterized by inflammation and bone loss around the implant, is a common culprit leading to implant failure. Other causes may include poor oral hygiene, systemic diseases, or anatomical limitations. Patients may experience discomfort, compromised function, and aesthetic concerns when dental implants fail.

However, the LAPIP protocol offers a promising solution! By leveraging advanced laser technology, LAPIP targets the infected peri-implant tissue precisely while preserving healthy structures. This minimally invasive approach not only eradicates bacteria and diseased tissue but also stimulates tissue regeneration, promoting the formation of a robust attachment around the implant. With LAPIP, you can regain confidence in your smile while preserving your oral health and the longevity of your dental implants.

Cost of Laser Gum Surgery

Laser gum surgery is well worth the cost for its long-lasting benefits and convenience. Unlike traditional gum surgical procedures, this treatment generally only requires a day to fully recover, then a few follow-up visits. The cost of your treatment will depend on your customized treatment plan, but we are always upfront with all fees and we offer competitive rates without sacrificing quality. Our patient coordinator will work diligently to ensure you receive the full advantages of our financial options. Rest assured, your laser gum surgery will be affordable, as well as beneficial for you in terms of your long-term comfort and health!
