Dr. Gregory A. Toback now offers patients with gum disease, treatment using the LANAP® Protocol

Dr. Gregory A. Toback believes in offering his patients the most minimally invasive surgeries available today, which is why he offers the LANAP® protocol as a viable and technologically advanced option for gum disease treatment. Laser gum surgery provides patients with many unique benefits and requires very little healing time, which is making it the preferred method of choice among patients.

Gum disease is an ailment that should be taken seriously because of its connection to a variety of other serious whole body complications like diabetes, heart disease, low birth weight babies, and pancreatic cancer. Until very recently, the treatment options available to patients were highly invasive and required the cutting and suturing of gum tissue. Today, in light of recent technological advances, gum disease treatment can be performed without any cutting or suturing by using a specialized laser that selectively targets diseased tissue and bacteria. LANAP® laser gum surgery employs a laser called the PerioLase® MVP-7™ which uses pulsed light at a special wavelength that is only absorbed by the dark pigmentation of diseased tissue and its bacterial cause, leaving healthy tissue, teeth, and bone in place and unharmed. This is a huge advantage to patients because by being able to leave healthy gum tissue behind, endangered teeth are more likely to be saved through the added structural support offered by this tissue. With traditional gum surgery, healthy gum tissue has to be removed at times along with the diseased tissue to ensure the infection has been completely eradicated.

LANAP® laser gum surgery is also unique in the fact that the laser used stimulates natural bone regeneration, which in many cases can save teeth that were thought to be a lost cause. These teeth can often be saved because the stimulation of the jaw bone provides further support for teeth, a factor necessary to long term oral health. There are many advantages to this type of gum disease treatment and the LANAP® protocol is a great alternative for those patients looking to avoid surgery and long healing times.
