Dr. Michael Neeley honors Gum Disease Month by offering consultations to all who are interested in finding out if they have the disease, along with the latest treatment using the LANAP® protocol. Most adults suffer from gum disease in their lives, even if they are not aware of it. The disease is a difficult thing to fight because it is painless in its early stages. Those in Dallas, TX who want to take care of gum disease before it causes damage to their teeth and bone must get treatment before they have any discomfort.

Plaque can build up along the gum line and harden even on people who brush and floss regularly. When this happens, the gums become irritated causing the gums to bleed more easily than they do when they are healthy. This first stage of gum disease is easy to miss without regular checkups because it is usually painless. If left untreated, the plaque progresses along the sides of the teeth below the gum line and onto the roots. At this stage of disease, the bacteria create pockets causing the gum to detach from the roots of the teeth. The disease then begins to break down the bone surrounding teeth until they become loose in their sockets.

Dr. Neeley is one of the few dentists in the nation who can perform the LANAP® protocol, a state-of-the-art laser treatment for gum disease. This procedure works with minimal discomfort, even in cases where the disease is advanced. Thanks to the LANAP® protocol, many with gum disease in Dallas, TX have already been able to save teeth that would have otherwise needed to be extracted. The treatment is performed by inserting a tiny laser probe into the pockets around teeth. The laser pulses remove the diseased tissue and actually stimulate reattachment of the gums in order to restore dental health.
