Miami, FL residents can now take advantage of the latest in gum disease treatment through Drs. Scott B. Ross and Bradley A. Ross, of South Florida Periodontics and Dental Implants and their use of a new laser gum surgery. With the LANAP® protocol, Drs. Ross and Ross can treat periodontal infection without cuts or stitches, so patients enjoy simpler procedures, faster recovery times and far less discomfort than with traditional scalpel surgeries.

Drs. Scott B. and Bradley A. Ross of South Florida Periodontics and Dental Implants offer patients the ability to receive minimally invasive gum disease treatment without any cuts or stitches and minimal bleeding, discomfort or recovery. The doctors are among the leading dental professionals to offer the LANAP® laser gum surgery to residents in Miami, FL, making the dream of healthy gums a more viable reality than ever before.

The LANAP® protocol utilizes the PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser, which is able to detect the difference between diseased and healthy gum tissue at a cellular level. The laser then eradicates the unhealthy cells and leaves all healthy tissue undisturbed. Traditional scalpel surgeries not only literally cut out areas of infection but also naturally cause some trauma to healthy gums, which is one of the sources of pain during and after the procedures. With the LANAP® laser gum surgery, needless pain becomes a thing of the past for Miami, FL patients. The reduced discomfort and shorter surgery time is beneficial to all patients, especially those who are fearful of cut-and-stitch methods of gum disease treatment.

In addition to not harming healthy gum cells, the laser gum disease treatment keeps as much gum tissue intact as possible. Scalpel methods lose some healthy cells along with diseased ones. When more gum tissue is lost, the neighboring teeth lose more of their natural and needed support. If too much gum tissue is lost, patients may face the prospect of gum grafts or even tooth loss. Lack of sufficient gum tissue can also prevent a patient’s ability to successfully receive dental implants, since implants, like natural teeth, require the gums to hold them securely in place. In this way, laser gum surgery can be a critical component to optimal oral health and aesthetics for many Miami, FL patients.

People in Miami who are interested in learning more about periodontal disease and how the LANAP® protocol may be able to help them are encouraged to visit the South Florida Periodontics and Dental Implants website. Drs. Scott B. and Bradley A. Ross are also always available for in-person consultations to help educate patients and identify the best options for them.
