Advancements in laser technology offer today’s medical and dental professionals a variety of cutting edge treatments for internal surgery, dermatology, ophthalmology, and dentistry. Innovative dental laser techniques have made great advancements in the treatment of periodontal disease. Dr. Douglas C. Lowy and Dr. Reid A. Nelson, both experienced periodontists, offer laser dentistry in Louisville, KY at LN Periodontics.

Dental laser devices harness light energy and manipulate its wavelength properties. The dental laser is typically used for disease diagnosis, soft tissue procedures, and hard tissue procedures. Soft tissue procedures include treatments of the lips, gums, or tongue. Hard tissue procedures are used for treatment of the bone, dentin, or enamel. Dental laser treatments continue to evolve and expand into new areas of dentistry with the advancement of technology.

The Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) uses the PerioLase® MVP-7™ to remove diseased tissue while leaving healthy tissue intact. This FDA cleared procedure offers patients a minimally invasive and highly effective treatment for periodontal disease. Using a dental laser allows Dr. Lowy and Dr. Nelson to provide treatment for moderate to severe periodontal disease without the use of scalpels or sutures. Patients experience less bleeding, minimal pain, and a speedier healing time with dental laser treatment.

Most patients are candidates for dental laser treatment. First, a complete evaluation is necessary. The extent of periodontal disease will be evaluated with x-rays and a periodontal probe to check the pocket depths surrounding the teeth. After a thorough evaluation, treatment plan options suited for you will be presented.

Patients with periodontal disease should have treatment as soon as possible to prevent advancement of the disease and further destruction to the supporting tissue and bone. LN Periodontics offers laser dentistry in Louisville, KY. Dr. Lowy and Dr. Nelson offer LANAP® along with a full scope of periodontal treatments for their patients.
