Dr. Sergio Guzman and Dental Partners of Boston announce the addition of the laser gum surgery option, LANAP, to their extensive array of advanced technology options. LANAP is a highly effective method of treating periodontal gum disease that has been shown to reduce patient discomfort and shorten recovery times when compared to traditional gum surgery.

LANAP, or Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure, has moved to the forefront of periodontal treatment options due to the many benefits it offers to patients suffering from gum disease. Traditional gum surgery procedures could involve pain for the patient, held a higher risk of gum recession, and could require extensive recovery times. LANAP gum disease therapy is minimally invasive and precisely removes only disease-damaged tissues. This highly selective surgery results in a greatly improved patient treatment experience that is nearly discomfort-free. Recovery time following LANAP gum disease surgery is a fraction of traditional surgery recovery as the LANAP process encourages tissue regeneration and healing.

Dr. Sergio Guzman of Dental Partners of Boston believes the LANAP treatment benefits are particularly important because they can remove apprehensions many patients have about gum disease treatments and allow them to pursue treatment.

“The benefits of the LANAP therapy are many, but the primary benefit can be seen in its ability to avoid invasive surgery in the treatment of periodontal disease. This benefit alone provides hope to patients who may not be treating their periodontal disease due to a fear of traditional surgical treatments.”

As Managing Member with Dental Partners of Boston, Dr. Guzman has been selected as one of “America’s Top Dentists” by the Consumers’ Research Council of America for six consecutive years (2006-2012) and specializes in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of periodontal (gum) disease. His pursuit of advanced technological treatment options is driven by a desire to offer patients outstanding, state of the art dental techniques, such as LANAP, that not only produce excellent dental care results, but create opportunities for treatment to apprehensive patients.

Potential patients interested in the LANAP procedure may contact Dental Partners of Boston at their convenient Prudential Center offices at 800 Boylston Street, 2nd Floor or by calling 617-259-1100. Consultation appointments may also be scheduled online.
