Achieve Disease-Free Gums with Laser-Based Treatment

Far too many people don’t even realize they have gum disease until it’s too late. When gum disease reaches advanced stages, the risk of losing teeth becomes overwhelmingly high. By the time patients come to our office for gum disease treatment in Beaverton, OR, many have been suffering from advanced gum disease stages for years. LANAP® laser gum disease treatment offers a fast, direct, reliable solution for advanced periodontal disease. In fact, LANAP is the only research-backed, FDA-approved gum disease treatment that results in regeneration of the oral soft tissue, new bone growth, and gum tissue reattachment. Our dentist Dr. Heath A. Lampee uses LANAP laser treatment in Beaverton, OR, to promote bone regeneration and eliminate inflammation with the goal of saving severely damaged teeth. LANAP targets and kills dangerous bacteria that cause gum disease, and also eliminates damaged gum tissue and reattaches healthy tissue to the surface of the tooth. Our cutting-edge PerioLase MVP-7 LANAP laser allows the dentist to carry out minimally invasive laser dentistry in Beaverton, OR, with virtually none of the pain, gum recession, or sensitivity that’s common with traditional gum disease surgery.

What is Gingivitis or Gum Disease?

Understanding what gum disease exactly is a key component of making an informed decision about your overall oral health. The soft tissue of the gums is a critical part of the oral cavity, as it supports both the teeth and the jaw while acting as a barrier against intrusion of foreign bacteria. The initial stage of gum disease is known as gingivitis, and this occurs when excess bacteria in the mouth build up and starts to produce inflammation in and around the gums. Quality oral hygiene and frequent dental cleanings are often enough to reverse the earliest signs of gingivitis. Far and away the leading cause of gum disease is poor oral hygiene.

When bacteria-ridden plaque begins to build up on the teeth, it will eventually solidify into tartar. This releases toxins from the bacteria that will eventually begin to irritate and inflame the gum tissue. If left untreated, the gums will actually start to pull away from the teeth, forming periodontal pockets. In the event that bacteria accumulate in these pockets, the result is often severe infection that affects both the bone and connective tissue of the mouth. And since gum disease is progressive, untreated damage to either the gums, bone, or the teeth will inevitably lead to tooth loss.

Benefits of Laser Therapy for Gum Disease Treatment

The good news is, even advanced symptoms of gum disease can be treated by our experienced dentist with LANAP laser dentistry in Beaverton, OR. Unlike traditional soft tissue surgeries for dentists, LANAP is 100% non-invasive and does not involve the use of scalpels or incisions. For this reason, the risk of infection post-treatment is virtually non-existent. After numbing the gums with an anesthetic, Dr. Lampee will use a cutting-edge PerioLase MVP-7 laser to treat infected soft tissue and eliminate bacteria, thereby closing the periodontal pocket between the teeth and the gums. Patients at Dr. Lampee’s Teeth In 24 Dental Practice choose LANAP laser gum disease treatment because it offers numerous benefits over traditional approaches. In fact, many patients that are scared of going to the dentist for an invasive procedure, are much more likely to receive LANAP gum surgery. Research also shows that in just a few short months after LANAP laser treatment, patients experience significantly reduced bacteria and infection, and significant reductions in the depth of existing periodontal pockets.

Calm, welcoming, efficient, helpful, and thorough.
Dr. Lampee is an amazing Doctor. Probably the best dentist I have ever been to. He is a great person and cares deeply for his patients. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
Gracious, friendly and professional response from front desk to dental technician to Dr. Lampee. Very professional assessment of options for my somewhat complex issues, based on outstanding technology and engaged and complete explanations from Dr. Lampee. Worthy of 6 stars!
Dr. Lampee is probably the most highly skilled dentist in the greater Portland area. My wife and I are truly grateful for finding this dental surgeon. Wanda, Lisa, and Dr. Lampee make up a great team. They are courteous, ethical, provide excellent service, and produce amazing results.
Dr. Lampee and his staff were amazing! I suffer from a high level of dental anxiety and needed some dental work done badly. Dr. Lampee and his staff put me at ease immediately and never made me feel silly or like I was overreacting. I used oral sedation for a root canal, crown and fillings. Dr. Lampee completed all the work in one appointment and it was the best dentist experience of my life. 100% recommend!
