Laser Gum Treatment in Columbia, SC
Dr. Gregg McKenzie provides high quality periodontics and implant dentistry in a safe and gentle environment. He specializes in treating patients with gum disease (periodontitis) using laser therapy. If gum disease isn’t caught in the early stages of gingivitis, it can progress into the more serious stage of periodontal disease, which leads to the bone and gum pulling away from the tooth, eventually resulting in tooth loss. If you are experiencing gum problems or are in need of any of our periodontics services, we treat patients in the surrounding areas of Columbia, Lexington, Blythewood and local communities, so visit us today!
LANAP, or the Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure, is a surgical therapy procedure used to treat gum disease in later stages. Dr. McKenzie offers laser gum treatment to patients with periodontitis to remove infected and dead gum tissue. This procedure leaves the healthy, living gum tissue in tact and also stimulates gum regeneration.
As one of the latest advancements in periodontal technology, its precision and effectiveness provides patients with many advantages over more traditional treatments:
- less post-procedure discomfort
- less inflammation and bleeding during and after the procedure
- less chance of dental decay following the procedure
- a more aesthetic appearance of the gums after the procedure
- a faster rate of healing and gum re-growth
