I was referred to this office by my dentist due to concerns about advanced gum disease. I was a 17 year smoker that quit 4 years ago and made it my goal to get my teeth back in order. Dr. Reed reviewed the status of my gum health with me and walked me through my options for procedures to move forward. I decided to go with the LANAP surgery for my whole mouth. Generally done in two sessions, i requested it to be done in one session. It was a long procedure doing it this way but Dr. Reed and those assisting were great at responding to any discomfort I might have had, and took breaks when needed. 2 months later im still in the healing process from the procedure but I can say, without a doubt, that this was the best decision I have ever made for my mouth. There has been some slight recession in areas of my gums and some sensitivity, which is to be expected with this procedure, but my over all oral health has never been so good. No more bleeding, no more food getting stuck in-between my teeth/in my gums, no more pain period. Ive invested in a Sonicare Tooth Brush and WaterPik to support my aftercare and I've found them both incredibly helpful. The toothbrush pulses in 30 second increments to let you know when you should switch each quadrant of your teeth. This has really helped me keep up with post operative oral care , especially when my depression makes it hard to want to get up and go through the motions of caring for my teeth. The office has also been great when it comes to taking time to explain things and respond to any concerns I have, they are calming and caring and it really shows. Overall, i'm very happy with my experience here and would encourage others to undergo the LANAP procedure.
