LANAP (Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure) is a patented surgical procedure that uses the Periolase Laser System for treatment of periodontitis. LANAP is performed by the periodontist and involves no cutting of the gums, no sutures, and less discomfort after surgery.
We are the only office certified to perform LANAP right here in Amarillo.
Gum grafts are placed, by a periodontist, to improve the tissue quality and quantity by covering completely or partially exposed roots of teeth (recession) that produce sensitivity and predispose you to further gum recession.
Recession can be due to periodontitis.
Periodontitis produces destruction of bone. Bone grafts are placed in the area of the intrabony defect, by the periodontist, in order to create new bone lost by gum disease.
Scaling and Root Planing is a basic treatment for periodontitis (gum disease).
If there is not a succesful response, or if your numbers continue to be 6 or above, you need a specialist!! Call us, we are in Amarillo.
A dental implant is a titanium post (like a tooth root) that is surgicaly positioned into the jawbone beneath the gumline that allows a replacement of a tooth lost possibly due to periodontitis.
