According to the US Surgeon General, periodontal disease (gum disease) affects 85 percent of adults in the United States. Periodontal disease can lead to more serious medical conditions, and should be treated in patients who are diagnosed. Treating periodontal disease is easier than ever; we now offer LANAP, a simple and safe outpatient procedure. This procedure has been cleared by the FDA and is being used by dentists across the country to clear away diseased gum tissue without cutting or stitching the gums. Call our office to for more information on the LANAP procedure.
