Dr. Kiya J. Green, a respected periodontist who offers leading care at her practice, Matthews Periodontics, is pleased to announce that she is now accepting new patients for the LANAP® protocol, with or without a referral. This revolutionary laser dentistry treatment allows Dr. Green to treat gum disease in Matthews, NC, in patients who would otherwise need to undergo more invasive procedures. LANAP is the only laser gum treatment cleared by the FDA for regeneration of bone and new tissue attachment.

According to the CDC, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, almost half of Americans have some form of gum disease. If left untreated, periodontal disease can cause bad breath, bleeding gums, gum recession, loose teeth and tooth loss. The bacteria causing the infection from gum disease can also spread throughout the body and has been connected to heart disease, stroke and diabetes, among other serious systemic effects.

With this innovative laser dentistry procedure, the LANAP protocol, Dr. Green can target the bacteria that cause gum disease in Matthews, NC. Using the specially designed PerioLase MVP-7 laser, she clears away the diseased tissue from pockets of infection that form under the gum line and allows the tissue and bone to reattach to the teeth. Patients who receive LANAP treatment report feeling less pain, having less bleeding and recovering more quickly than those who choose traditional gum surgery. Since there are no sutures required for this procedure, patients also experience little to no gum recession, which is a common side effect of traditional treatment options. In many cases, this procedure can also help save healthy teeth by promoting bone regeneration.

This laser dentistry procedure can help patients with gum disease in Matthews, NC, fight their condition and achieve proper oral health again. Those who would like to learn more about the LANAP protocol are invited to contact Dr. Green’s office to schedule an appointment by calling 704-847-5657.
