The doctors at GumDocs Periodontics now offer the LANAP® protocol, a revolutionary laser gum therapy, as a gum disease treatment in Ottawa, ON. Drs. Cameron Jones, Gordon Schwartz, Mira Ghaly, Eugenie MacKay, Karen Fung and Alison McGuire use the treatment to fight and treat their patients’ periodontal disease and restore their smiles. Researchers have linked this condition to serious, life-threatening diseases like stroke, heart attack, diabetes and cancer. To reduce their risks of these dangerous conditions, the doctors at GumDocs recommend the LANAP® protocol for many of their periodontal patients.

The LANAP® procedure is ideal for patients who are suffering from the signs and symptoms of periodontal disease including inflamed, bleeding gums. The gum disease treatment in Ottawa, ON allows patients to avoid traditional gum surgery without losing all of the benefits associated with the procedure. Traditional options use a scalpel and sutures to first remove diseased tissue along the gum line and then close the open wounds so they heal. This removes a great deal of healthy tissue in the process. Using the PerioLase®MVP-7™, a laser specifically designed and used for the LANAP® protocol, only diseased tissue and the bacteria that cause the disease are targeted. Patients are left with the maximum amount of healthy tissue so they experience less bleeding, inflammation and pain.

During the laser gum therapy, the LANAP® protocol can also be used to save patients’ existing teeth. The laser helps encourage the tissue to reattach to protect the teeth and bone. Another benefit of the protocol includes the short time needed for the procedure as well as the short healing period after. Most patients are able to return to their regular routines in as little as a day after they undergo the procedure. With no surgical wounds or stitches, patients also have easier post-operative care.

Patients who are interested in learning how the LANAP® protocol can restore their smiles should contact the doctors at GumDocs immediately. Patients can also visit their website to learn more about the laser gum therapy and its benefits.
