If there is improvement, then we can reevaluate at the next hygiene visit. If their condition is staying the same, a treatment plan may be as simple as telling the patient to increase the frequency of their dental hygiene visits in your office until improvement is noted.
“Oh, that was not so bad” and the reason for this is that nobody looks forward to any type of surgical procedure. However, periodontal treatment today causes minimal discomfort, especially using lasers and even with classical, conventional periodontal surgery.

Often times patients come in and they say they just want to go to sleep and wake up when the procedure has been completed. We have a medical team of board certified anesthesiologists who come to our office quite regularly. A medical anesthesiologist uses intravenous sedation, also called IV sedation, to put the patient to sleep and carefully monitor all vital signs during the procedure.
In my practice we are using laser dentistry to do what we call the LANAP procedure. LANAP stands for “Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure.” New attachment means that we are able to recreate what was lost from the disease process. In other words, we are able to get new attachment fibers, so we are helping the gum tissue grow tightly around the tooth where it was lost before.

Today, if a tooth needs to be removed first and then an implant placed at a later date, that timeframe is still approximately six months. However many times in my practice we are placing an implant at the same time as the tooth is removed. We call that “immediate implant placement” and the total treatment timeframe is now only about three months.
This may sound stressful, but it does not have to be. If you are a proactive patient, you will avoid a great deal of stress, as well as pain, which may come from ignoring a dental issue and allowing it to develop into an actual emergency. If you have a toothache that you have been tolerating, it could erupt into a real problem for you, and at the worst possible time – on vacation, Open House at your child’s school, a family outing, your grandson’s little league game, etc.
You may be a candidate for Laser Pocket Disinfection. LPD may used as a preventative measure to reduce chances of Periodontal Disease developing. If you have gingivitis, LPD can help reverse the symptoms it causes. LPD can also be used to treat patients on a perio-maintenance program – ask your dentist if this is something you should consider. LPD is pain-free and studies have shown absolutely no negative side effects results from the procedure in over 25 years of therapy. The treatment is safe for use around crowns, bridges, sealants and implants, or any other pre-existing dental work. LPD is beneficial to patients who have recently had surgery, or are scheduled to have surgery, as it reduces the bacteria that may enter the bloodstream.
