Laser vs Osseous Surgery in Tupelo, MS

 If you need periodontal disease treatment in north Mississippi, you have two options: Traditional gum surgery, which uses a scalpel and is very painful and or a laser gum surgery alternative, which uses light energy.

Traditional Periodontal Disease Treatment in North Mississippi

Laser Gum Surgery vs. Traditional Gum Surgery Tupelo, MSTraditional periodontal disease treatment in North Mississippi requires a scalpel to cut away gum tissue and scrape bacteria from the gum pockets. Good, healthy tissue is also cut away in the process, which causes a lot of bleeding and inflammation. Stitches and bandaging are necessary. Loss of good tissue also causes gum recession, which can make teeth sensitive and appear unattractive. Bone grafting is often needed to replace the soft tissue so it can attach to the tooth root surfaces. And sometimes teeth are pulled and replaced with dentures or implants. Traditional periodontal disease treatment in north Mississippi is painful. General anesthetic is required and taking prescription painkillers afterwards isn’t uncommon while healing, which takes time.

The Laser Gum Surgery Alternative in North Mississippi is Kinder

The Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) is an extremely effective and less painful gum surgery alternative that Dr. Michael Robertson uses for patients who need periodontal disease treatment in north Mississippi.

  • No Scalpel, less pain. The LANAP® gum surgery alternative is a minimally invasive procedure that uses therapeutic laser energy to do the work. There’s no cutting or heavy bleeding, which means no stitches or packing between the gums. All that’s required is a local anesthetic to numb the gums. The LANAP® gum surgery alternative is tolerable.

  • Superior bacteria removal. Dr. Robertson uses the FDA-cleared PerioLase® MVP-7 to perform the LANAP® gum surgery alternative. There is no better laser on the market to remove bacteria from the gum pockets. Unlike the scalpel, the The PerioLase® MVP-7™ can identify and destroy only the diseased tissue. Regardless of how deep or infected the gum pocket, this gum surgery alternative never harms the nearby healthy tissue so it can stay and reattach to the teeth roots.

  • New bone development. LANAP® laser gum surgery alternative grows bone around existing teeth. No other periodontal disease treatment in north Mississippi can do that. Research, human histological studies and Dr. Robertson’s own patients are proof that laser stimulates bone growth. Teeth need bone to survive and the LANAP® gum surgery alternative can save teeth.

  • Recovery is fast. Most patients who choose this laser gum surgery alternative as their periodontal disease treatment in north Mississippi are fully recovered in 24 hours or less.
