Laser Periodontal Therapy

Laser Periodontal Roswell NMDid you know that 3 out 4 Roswell residents will struggle with periodontal disease at some point? Also known as gum disease, periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in America. Preliminary symptoms include redness, swelling, irritation, and bleeding of the gums. If you are suffering from periodontal disease, Dr. Thompson just might have the perfect treatment for you.

LANAP, or Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure is the most advanced, effective, and least invasive gum disease therapy available. Traditionally, Roswell residents with periodontal disease would have to undergo gum surgery, but LANAP allows Dr. Thompson to target infected gum tissue with extreme, laser-assisted precision and remove the least amount of tissue possible. That means no healthy tissue is destroyed, so your procedure will be less painful and your gums will recover faster.

If you have questions about gum disease treatments, please give us a call. Dr. Thompson has been helping Roswell residents make informed oral health choices and achieve happier, healthier smiles for years.
