Share Article

New laser gum therapy aims to combat periodontal disease and produce a healthy mouth.

“My focus is on your dental health and well-being. Not just a beautiful smile but a healthy mouth,” says Dr. Marcus.

Dr. Michael Marcus, a dentist in Chicago, recently introduced LANAP Laser Gum Surgery to his practice, a procedure that treats periodontal disease without scalpels or sutures. Symptoms of gum disease include red, swollen gums, bleeding after brushing or flossing, receding gums, and chronic bad breath. However, despite the warning signs, many people do not know they have gum disease or have not been diagnosed. And, many who have been diagnosed, refuse to seek treatment because traditional periodontal disease treatments can be invasive and painful.

Despite the health complications gum disease may cause, many people fear seeking treatment for gum disease because traditional treatments can be invasive and painful. Traditional gum surgery requires the doctor to cut the gums in order to clean the area. After the procedure, many people experience moderate to severe pain and many require days off of work in order to recover. And, because the surgery requires cutting of the gums, many patients will experience receding gums as the diseased tissue is cut away.

Dr. Michael Marcus believes there is a better way to treat periodontal gum disease. “My focus is on your dental health and well-being. Not just a beautiful smile but a healthy mouth,” says Dr. Marcus. “Since I began using the LANAP Laser in my practice, I’ve seen amazing results. The LANAP Laser has enabled me to save teeth that I would have previously deemed helpless. I’m now able to save my patients natural teeth and bring their mouths back to a complete state of health.”

The revolutionary LANAP Laser Gum Treatment works by operating at a wavelength that can tell the difference between diseased tissue and healthy tissue and essentially zaps away the periodontal disease. The laser does not require the use of a blade or sutures and is a minimally invasive procedure that causes very little gum recession and very little discomfort to the patient. Not only does it increase patient comfort, it is also provides Dr. Marcus with fantastic, predictable long-term results.

As a leading dentist in Illinois, Dr. Michael Marcus believes in providing his patients with state-of-the-art dental care and has been trained extensively to provide his patients with such procedures as dental implants, implant supported dentures, LANAP laser dentistry, and Cosmetic Dentistry.

Dr. Michael Marcus Graduated from Loyola University School of Dentistry in 1987. He specializes in dental implants, LANAP, and cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Michael Marcus has been in practice in Chicago with his father, Dr. David Marcus, for 25 years.
