The Benefits of LANAP® Cutting-Edge Gum Disease Treatment for Albany, NY

Minimal Pain and Post Surgery Discomfort– Because the laser targets only the diseased tissue in the periodontal pocket, Dr. Ference is able to remove the bacteria without cutting or stitching, resulting in a more comfortable patient experience. Pain medication is rarely prescribed after a laser gum surgery procedure.

Faster Healing and Shorter Recovery Time – The Periolase® MVP-7™ eliminates the bacteria and reduces the inflammation immediately without affecting the healthy connective tissue, allowing your body to heal quickly. 

Mitigation of Gum Recession and other Cosmetic Oral Issues – Because traditional surgeries amputate tissue, the procedure always entails some degree of gum recession. The gum line may be reduced anywhere from 2-4 mm up to 10 mm in a traditional surgical procedure. In contrast, patients experience little to no gum recession with LANAP® because the surgeon does not amputate any healthy tissue.  The laser energy kills the bacteria, selectively removing it from the healthy tissue offering a minimally invasive approach to gum disease treatment. Limited gum recession is just one of the many reasons that patients come to Dr. Ference for this innovative gum disease treatment in Albany, NY.

Elimination of Inflammation and Control of Bleeding – The PerioLase® MVP-7™ greatly reduces inflammation after one treatment.  Because this laser is being used, Dr. Ference is able to control bleeding with the LANAP® protocol.

The number one reason Dr. Ference’s patients choose the LANAP gum disease treatment is because they want to save their natural teeth and prevent a chronic bacterial infection from spreading in their mouths and their bodies. They want to keep their healthy smiles for years to come.
