Did you know that gingivitis and periodontitis is caused by harmful bacteria? Gum disease is often associated with tooth loss, heart disease, diabetes, underweight babies, and even some cancers. To avoid these consequences, you must seek treatment for gingivitis before gum disease progresses into the more advanced stages.
While gum disease can have serious consequences, options for treating it are now less invasive and more convenient than ever before thanks to the PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser and the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®). Periodontal surgery is safe and effective. As a periodontist, Dr. Bruce B. Wiland offers LANAP® and periodontal surgery in Marion, Wayne and Howard Counties, IN.
LANAP® is the first FDA-cleared laser protocol for the treatment of gum disease. It is a procedure in which the PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser is used to destroy the harmful bacteria which causes gum disease. While the laser is effective against the bacteria, it does not damage the healthy tissue. More information can be found in the section for procedure brochures where you can download the LANAP booklet
