Dr Rebecca Wagner is certified to offer a simple, quick and safe outpatient treatment for gum disease, also known as periodontal disease. Gum disease is as an infection of the tissues that support the teeth, the condition affects over 60% adult Americans. The LANAP® protocol is an FDA-cleared laser treatment developed by Millennium Dental Technologies, Inc. to clear away diseased tissue without cutting or stitching of the gums.
“With the availability of the LANAP protocol, we now have a patient-friendly treatment option for managing gum disease,” “The procedure is fast, often painless and yields predictable results. It is also the only laser gum surgery backed with histological and clinical science. By reducing post-operative pain, the number of sessions required and the recovery time, the LANAP treatment removes many of the reasons that so many patients hesitate to seek treatment for periodontal disease.”
