Gingival Flap Surgery: Patients are advised to have surgery for severe gum disease if it cannot be cured with antibiotics or root planing and scaling. A flap surgery cleans the roots of a tooth and repairs bone damage caused by gum disease. A gum specialist or an oral surgeon often performs the procedure. At Bangalore Dental solutions and Implant center we do pain-free laser assisted Flap Surgery. Dr. Balasubramanya is a highly qualified Periodontist & Laser Dentist whose success rate at this kind of surgery is high.
Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure
The process for laser gum surgery uses LANAP, which stands for “laser-assisted new attachment procedure.” The pulsing laser can tell the difference between a diseased gum tissue (which is darker in color) and a healthy tissue, and thus it only destroys the infected areas. Laser gum surgery triumphs over traditional method as it:
- Promotes regeneration of diseased gum and root surfaces.
- The patient experiences less gum recession
- Lower chance of the gum disease returning
- Little recovery time
- Pain-free experience
- Not an expensive procedure.
