Gum Disease and Your Health

Gum disease has been linked to a variety of health complications including heart disease and low birth-weight babies. Until now the majority of the treatment options available were invasive and painful. LANAP is minimally invasive and does not require the cutting or stitching of the gums!

Advanced Laser Gum Surgery in the Augusta, GA Area

LANAP Laser Treatment Augusta, GADr. Ben Timmerman treats periodontal disease using the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®), a gentle, FDA cleared, minimally invasive alternative to conventional gum surgery that works!

The Benefits of Laser Gum Surgery in Augusta, GA with Dr. Timmerman:

• No need to incise or suture the gum line
• Minimizes inflammation and pain significantly
• Fast recovery, less reliance on pain medication
• Will contribute to gum recession
• Grows new bone to support existing teeth

Treating Periodontal Disease with LANAP®

Receiving professional treatment for moderate to severe periodontal disease with Dr. Timmerman is a unique and rewarding experience. Unlike traditional approaches, which involve using a scalpel to cut the gums and remove infected areas, LANAP® is an entirely cut and suture free method cleared by the FDA to safely treat periodontal disease with minimal pain and no damage to healthy gum tissue.

Dr. Timmerman generally performs LANAP® in one to two office visits using the PerioLase® MVP-7™, an FDA-cleared dental laser that is designed to quickly target and discriminate bacteria and diseased oral tissue from your healthy tissue to reduce inflammation and bleeding significantly, a major reason why more patients choose laser over the scalpel method. Using a blade to locate bacteria causes damage and inflammation on the gum line, making it a periodontal disease treatment that may still be effective but harder to tolerate and longer to recover from.

LANAP® is a faster, more precise, and comfortable periodontal disease treatment favored also because it produces steady and reliable outcomes, including bone regeneration around your existing teeth. Medical studies and our own patients have shown that laser therapy provides added bone support to reduce risk of tooth loss. The chance of gum recession, which is a common side effect of scalpel surgery, is also significantly reduced with LANAP® and the reattachment of your soft tissue to the tooth surface is accomplished naturally, without sutures, making recovery a breeze.
