Periodontist Dr. Withers and his team focus their efforts on all methods of maintaining and restoring healthy gums for patients in Fairfax, VA as a way of achieving better oral and overall health. Providing gum disease treatment is one such method. After receiving training at the Institute for Advanced Laser Dentistry this spring, Dr. Withers has been able to successfully treat stubborn gum infections in less time and with less impact than with traditional methods. Healthy gums offer many benefits including the ability to successfully receive dental implants to replace missing teeth. Healthy gums can also be a means to preventing tooth loss as the gums are critical to tooth support.

At the heart of the LANAP® gum disease treatment is the PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser. This special laser can effectively differentiate between healthy and diseased gum tissue cells. It evaporates areas of infection and leaves non-diseased tissue untouched. This contributes to the dramatically lessened levels of pain that patients experience when compared to traditional gum disease surgeries that often result in the loss of some healthy tissue as well as diseased tissue. Dr. Withers chose to adopt the LANAP® method as part of his ongoing commitment to leading-edge dental procedures as a means of providing the best care possible to his patients.
