Dr. John Starr of Golden Triangle Periodontal Center can help patients experiencing tooth loss from periodontal disease with laser gum treatment and dental implants. As part of a minority of dental professionals who can perform the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP), Dr. Starr can offer patients the benefits of laser gum treatment, which stimulates new bone growth around teeth to prevent their loss. For those missing teeth, Dr. Starr can place dental implants to facilitate a healthy dentition.    

LANAP can produce more consistent results than conventional surgery options, and it is less invasive. The laser utilized only affects periodontally diseased tissues, and is beneficial in stimulating new bone growth. The laser leaves healthy tissue untouched while sterilizing the diseased pockets. For patients missing teeth, Dr. Starr then can place dental implants in a disease free site.

Dental implants have become the preferred tooth replacement over bridges and dentures for a many reasons. They are made from commercially pure (CP) titanium, the industry standard for use in medical devices because of its affinity with bone. Dental implants are biocompatible and prevent further loss of alveolar bone. Dr. Starr recommends removing gum disease prior to placing dental implants with LANAP laser gum procedure.
