Advanced Dental Lasers Offer Effective, Comfortable Periodontal Treatment
Farber Center provides the most advanced laser gum surgery Long Island has available. The state-of-the-art periodontal surgical techniques we offer are unmatched in their effectiveness and results. One of the most significant is LANAP (Laser Assisted New Attachment Protocol). It is the only FDA-cleared gum surgical procedure that is scientifically proven to regenerate bone and reattach gum tissue to save your teeth. Research has proven the effectiveness of the LANAP protocol and it continues to produce outcomes that are preferable to older methods. Dr. Farber has devoted his career to preventing tooth loss and we take great pride in being among the Long Island periodontists that are able to offer effective and comfortable laser surgery treatments as alternatives to traditional methods.
True Periodontal Regeneration with LAR
Lasers offer essential advances in dental and gum surgery and they are useful in both soft- and hard-tissue procedures. Laser Assisted Regeneration (LAR) refers to treatments that stimulate your body to regrow bone and reattach gums. LAR procedures produce highly effective results and most importantly, for you make gum surgery faster, less invasive, and more comfortable.
Four types of lasers can be used in dentistry, and an important one we offer at Farber Center is the PerioLase MVP-7. In technical terms, it is a free-running, variable pulsed, Nd:YAG laser with a total of seven different pulse variations. What this means is that it works like seven-lasers-in-one, which significantly enhances its potential to save your teeth.
FDA Cleared Laser Dental Treatment
Because of its ability to truly regenerate bone and periodontal (gum) tissue, LAR treatment using the PerioLase MVP-7 is the only procedure of its kind cleared by the FDA. Laser gum surgery will immediately begin restoring your oral health, which is closely connected to whole-body health. It will help save your teeth and preserve gums and underlying jawbone that are essential.
If you’ve heard from others about the discomfort and longer healing times of traditional gum surgery, lasers offer you a better alternative. Patients report less apprehension about beginning treatment, and once underway, things move more quickly and smoothly. Farber Center is dedicated to offering you LAR and all of the best available periodontal surgery options.
Laser Assisted Regeneration (LAR) Saves Teeth
Few recent advances in periodontal treatment and gum surgery can match the benefits to patients provided by LAR, LANAP, and LAPIP. Dental laser surgeries like these offer successful outcomes with less downtime, discomfort or loss of healthy gum tissue.
Even more importantly, the protocols made possible with our PerioLase MVP-7 equipment include the only ones that are FDA cleared to regenerate bone and reattach gums.
Practicing holistic dentistry is core to Farber Centers values and improving your oral health can make important contributions to your whole-body health. Clearing periodontal infections benefit your teeth and gums as well as other major organs and systems that are affected by conditions in the mouth.
Patient Education Video on Laser Gum Surgery
Patient information and education are important to us and by viewing the video below, you can watch an overview of a laser dental surgery procedure. Less invasive and more comfortable are two of the advantages over the traditional cut and sew procedures of gum surgery. The bone regrowth ability also adds important benefits that make these protocols even more significant in terms of the oral health improvements they can offer. Farber Center is among Long Island’s most effective periodontal and dental implant practices and has a commitment to offering you a wide range of treatment options, including the latest laser gum surgeries.
