Dr. Todd Smith and Dr. Michael Cole Now Offer New Braunfels, TX Patients a Less Invasive Gum Disease Treatment

Past News Releases


Drs. Todd Smith and Michael Cole, experienced dentists in New Braunfels, TX, now invite patients who are in need of gum disease treatment to visit their office for a revolutionary laser gum surgery. Drs. Smith and Cole use the LANAP® protocol to combat moderate to severe cases of periodontal disease quickly and effectively without damaging health tissue.

Gum disease affects millions of people across the United States, yet few actually seek treatment. Many are unaware that research has linked periodontal disease to various serious health conditions including heart disease, cancer, diabetes, stroke, and pregnancy complications. With so many risks involved, patients should seek treatment for gum disease as soon as they realize there is a problem.

Many patients avoid dental work due to the invasive and painful procedures that were once used as treatment for gum disease. Today, as dentists in New Braunfels, TX, Drs. Smith and Cole successfully treat patients with gum disease with the LANAP® protocol. Using the PerioLase®MVP-7™ laser, Drs. Smith and Cole can target the bacteria that cause gum disease and the infected tissue while leaving the healthy tissue intact. The procedure also helps the healthy tissue reattach to a tooth’s roots, helping patients keep their natural teeth.

The LANAP® procedure can provide all of the benefits of traditional gum surgery without many of the side effects, such as gum recession and increased sensitivity. Additionally, the protocol can be performed in one or two short appointments, and patients can usually return to their regular activities within a few hours. Patients also report less pain and less discomfort than is reported with traditional gum surgery. With no contraindications, the procedure is considered safe to use on nearly all patients.

As dentists in New Braunfels, TX, Drs. Smith and Cole would like patients to understand the importance of treating gum disease in its early stages. Those who would like more information about gum disease and the LANAP® procedure can visit the Laser & Cosmetic Family Dentistry website or call the office.
