Share Article

Those suffering from gum disease in Livonia, MI now have the opportunity to visit Dr. Roman Shlafer to receive treatment for this progressive condition. Dr. Shlafer performs the advanced gum surgery alternative known as the LANAP® laser protocol, which is a minimally invasive and effective means of treating the moderate to advanced stages of gum disease.

Dr. Roman Shlafer is excited to announce that he is expanding his practice to take in patients who have gum disease in Livonia, MI and the surrounding areas. These patients often require the help of an innovative gum surgery alternative known as the LANAP® laser protocol. This treatment uses the PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser to specifically target only diseased gum tissue and harmful oral bacteria and to stimulate the regrowth of bone, the loss of which is a characteristic of this progressive condition. It replaces traditional gum surgery, is minimally invasive, and boasts high success rates.

The LANAP® protocol is still a new gum surgery alternative, so most offices around the United States do not have the training and experience they need to offer it to their patients. Dr. Shlafer has seen the benefits that this treatment provides patients, and he is pleased to be at the forefront of this exciting, FDA cleared procedure. He is now passing these successes on to those with gum disease in Livonia because he wishes to help as many people as possible. When gum disease progresses, it creates deep periodontal pockets around the roots of teeth. Dr. Shlafer inserts the laser’s tiny probe into the pockets of disease to initiate treatment. The PerioLase® MVP-7™ is designed to differentiate between diseased tissue and healthy tissue based on color, so it leaves healthy tissue alone except to stimulate bone growth.

Prior to the availability of treatment with the LANAP® protocol, patients had to turn to traditional gum surgery. While traditional surgery has its merits, it is becoming an increasingly outdated way to treat gum disease. The surgery requires cutting into the pockets of disease around tooth roots, and often cutting away the healthy tissue in order to reach them. Without a laser, this results in the loss of much healthy tissue, because even careful dentists cannot distinguish tissue as well as a laser can. Patients with gum disease in Livonia no longer must accept traditional surgery as their only treatment option.

Those who would like to learn more about this minimally invasive gum surgery alternative, or who would simply like to get more information about Dr. Shlafer, are invited to visit his website or call his office. Dr. Shlafer performs personalized consultations to discuss treatment with the LANAP® protocol and for other dental needs.
