5 out of 5 stars

I have been going to Dr. Green for several years. The entire staff are always so kind and professional. I had a lot of gum surgery in Nov. and Dec. of 2015. The results were very successful. I had complete confidence and trust as Dr. Green was performing the procedures. She is very knowledgeable in her profession. I highly recommend Dr. Green and her staff to others.

Osseous vs. Laser Gum Surgery in Matthews, NC

If you are diagnosed with periodontal disease, you must seek treatment for gum disease as soon as possible and educate yourself on the difference between traditional gum surgery and laser surgery. Traditional surgery typically involves cutting away healthy and unhealthy gum tissue in order to eradicate the infection. Laser treatment for gum disease with the LANAP® protocol is minimally invasive when compared with traditional gum surgery because it does not require any cutting of the tissue. The laser is very safe and can target infected areas with precision.

Differences Between Traditional Gum Surgery and the LANAP® Laser Protocol

  • Discomfort
    Traditional surgery can be uncomfortable and may involve some downtime. Since laser treatment for gum disease is minimally invasive, most patients can get back to work immediately after their visit.
  • Gum recession
    Traditional surgery can cause some gum recession, as healthy tissue may be removed along with diseased tissue. LANAP® treatment only targets diseased tissue and does not contribute to gum recession.
  • Healing time
    LANAP® treatment boasts a fast healing time because there is no cutting or suturing of the gum tissue.
  • Long term results
    LANAP® treatment provides more predictable results than other procedures and can eliminate up to 90 percent of the bacteria in the mouth after a single session.
