Laser Gum Disease Treatment

LANAP® Laser Treatment using the PerioLase™

For patients who have avoided gum disease treatment in the past, Dr. Thomas Dickson is now providing laser gum surgery in Midvale, UT. This is a perfect solution for patients in search of a minimally invasive treatment. While gum disease affects millions of Americans every year, only a small amount of these patients will actually seek treatment. This is because many people see traditional gum surgery as worse than the disease itself. Luckily, the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) is a minimally invasive treatment that results in minimal pain and shorter recovery periods. In fact, many patients and doctors alike have described LANAP® as the highest quality treatment for gum disease.

With the invention of the PerioLase®MVP-7™ and LANAP®, it is now possible to treat gum disease without harming teeth or healthy tissue. This is because the PerioLase®MVP-7™ can single out the bacteria and diseased tissue, leaving everything else completely unharmed. Because traditional surgery uses a blade to remove tissue and bacteria, it is inevitable that there will be some collateral damage. LANAP®, however, is a more precise, minimally invasive treatment that utilizes new laser technology to remove only the infected portions of the tissue. In fact, LANAP® is more than just a minimally invasive treatment; it will also stimulate bone and tissue regrowth to prevent tooth loss in areas that have been affected by gum disease.

LANAP® is the only method of laser gum surgery that has been proven effective through years of global research. It is also the only laser surgery for gum disease to receive clearance by the FDA. Dr. Dickson is part of a small, select group of dental professionals who are properly trained to operate the PerioLase®MVP-7™ and certified to perform this minimally invasive treatment.
