Traditional vs. Laser Periodontal Disease Treatment in Newport Beach, CA
The LANAP® laser protocol is quickly becoming the new standard for gum disease treatment. When compared to traditional surgery, laser gum surgery offers many benefits to patients of Dr. Coury Staadecker. Some advantages of laser periodontal disease treatment in Newport Beach, CA include:

  • Minimal pain
  • Little to no infection risk
  • Minimal to no gum recession
  • Short recovery period
  • Predictable long term results


Minimal Pain

Traditional gum surgery is often painful because it involves cutting and removing tissue with a blade or scalpel. In most cases, healthy gum tissue is damaged in the process. LANAP® laser treatment, however, uses sophisticated laser technology to vaporize infected gum tissue in a minimally invasive manner. In fact, most patients do not require pain medication after the procedure.

Little to No Infection Risk

Traditional gum surgery involves a fair amount of bleeding. However, LANAP® laser surgery involves the creation of blood clots which helps to stop bleeding and forms a safe environment for healing to begin. This greatly reduces the risk of an infection setting in before the wounds have healed.

Minimal to No Gum Recession

Since laser gum surgery preserves healthy tissue, gum recession is kept to a minimum. In fact, gum recession is up to three times less severe than it is with traditional surgery. This means there is little to no risk of needing a gum recession treatment afterward.

Short Recover Period

Since less tissue is removed and there is no need for pain medication, the recovery period following LANAP® treatment is much shorter than with traditional gum surgery. In fact, many patients are able to return to work that same day.

Predicable Long Term Results

The laser used for LANAP® treatment can be applied to stimulate tissue regrowth as well as removing infection. This means the risk of future tooth loss is much smaller and the long term results are easier to predict.
