Dr. Steven Daniel and Dr. Gaydos-Daniel now accept new patients who may be in need of a number of different treatments, including options for the treatment of gum disease, missing teeth, and much more. The doctors offer a unique and innovative approach to periodontal disease treatment in Murfreesboro, TN through the use of the LANAP® protocol, a minimally invasive laser treatment that provides a solution to gum disease without the use of a scalpel or sutures. In addition to providing LANAP® laser treatment to new patients, these doctors are also able to provide dental implants as well, once any periodontal disease has been treated and controlled, which are a permanent and practical solution for patients who are missing teeth.

Periodontal disease is becoming increasingly common nationwide, and a recent report from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) indicate that roughly half of all American adults suffer from some form of the disease. Many of these people do not seek treatment, and there has been some recent speculation that gum disease sufferers often avoid treatment based on the inaccurate notion that the available treatment options are painful and invasive. Through the availability of LANAP® laser treatment, this is not the case. Only harmful bacteria and diseased tissue are targeted through the use of the PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser, and healthy gum tissue remains unharmed.

It is important to note that the primary cause of tooth loss in adults is periodontal disease. As a result, missing teeth are also a common issue, as over three-quarters of the population from ages 35 to 44 have lost at least one permanent tooth. More than one-quarter of the American population over the age of 74 has lost all of their permanent teeth, which is a statistic that underscores the importance of the availability of a viable tooth replacement solution such as dental implants. This is especially important when it comes to the availability of a periodontal disease treatment in Murfreesboro, TN, as those who have both missing teeth and periodontal disease will not likely be good candidates for dental implants until the disease is treated and controlled. By offering a minimally invasive laser treatment such as the LANAP® protocol, the doctors are able to prepare the oral environment to receive dental implants.

For patients who are in need of a minimally invasive periodontal disease treatment in Murfreesboro, TN to increase their candidacy for tooth replacement with dental implants, the office of Dr. Steven Daniel and Dr. Gaydos-Daniel currently accepts appointments for consultations. During the initial consultation, the doctors will be able to determine whether or not laser treatment or dental implants are ideal options for each individual patient.
