Periodontal Therapy & Laser Dentistry
If you have been told you have periodontal (gum) disease, you’re not alone. Many adults in the U.S. currently have some form of the disease. Periodontal diseases range from simple gum inflammation to serious disease that results in major damage to the soft tissue and bone that support the teeth. In the worst cases, teeth are lost.
Our office offers the latest in the treatments of gum disease, including OralDNA Testing and L.A.N.A.P. (laser assisted new attachment procedure). OralDNA Testing is a specific bacterial test for the risk and presence of gum disease, and L.A.N.A.P. is an FDA-approved treatment for those suffering from Periodontal Disease. If you have been battling this very serious infection, L.A.N.A.P. could be right for you. Dr. Sullivant has had extensive training with this laser procedure and we are 1 of 9 offices in the state of Arkansas to provide this fantastic new technology.
The LANAP protocol is the only laser gum disease treatment FDA cleared for True Regeneration. Simply put, the LANAP protocol can re-grow the tissues and bone lost to gum disease. Compared to traditional osseous surgery, patients say the LANAP protocol is:
- Less painful
- Less post-op sensitivity
- Less gum loss (gum recession)
- Very little downtime after treatment
