Share Article

Now offering a rapid and effective new laser gum surgery to Franklin patients, the Nashville Periodontal Group helps patients treat gum disease that can cause gum pain and other troubling symptoms. In as little as one office visit, patients can have gum disease treatment and reduce the risks it entails with the LANAP® protocol, a minimally invasive laser-based gum surgery.

The Nashville Periodontal Group is providing a laser gum surgery that impresses Franklin patients with the rapid results and quick recovery from the minimally invasive gum surgery. Eliminating gum pain and other symptoms, the minimally invasive procedure is called the LANAP® protocol and is FDA cleared to treat gum infection and remove the damaged tissue associated with the infection.

The millions of Americans who suffer from gum disease are harboring infectious organisms that can travel throughout the body via the bloodstream to do damage to other organs and spread disease. With laser gum surgery, the Nashville Periodontal Group is able to treat gum disease that causes gum pain and other symptoms. Other signs of gum infection can include:

  •     Discolored or reddened gum tissue
  •     Persistent bad breath or mouth odor
  •     Sensitive gums

Gum disease is not only painful and unpleasant, but it has been linked to complications and increased risk of many other health conditions, including stroke, some types of cancers, and heart disease. The damaging effects of infection rampant in the gum tissue has also been linked to memory decline and complications with diabetes. Many people have avoided treatment for gum disease because they were nervous about having their gum tissue cut with scalpels as with traditional gum surgery.

The laser gum surgery now offers hope for Franklin patients who wish to avoid the cutting and stitching of gum tissue associated with traditional gum surgery. Patients find that the doctor can treat the gum infection with just one or two simple office visits. Most patients who have received the LANAP® protocol report only minor discomfort and slight bleeding, if any, with the surgery.
