Less Recession – Because traditional surgery for gum treatment requires that healthy tissue be removed in order to get to the unhealthy parts, there is no way to prevent the gum line from being reduced. Alternative treatments, like LANAP®, result in much less recession. This is because there is no removal of healthy tissue. With the laser gum surgery alternative there is less recession, which means less root sensitivity and less aesthetic problems.
Shorter healing time – Because there is so much tissue removed, the healing time can be quite long following traditional gum surgery. Alternative treatments are less invasive and result in a shorter recovery period.
