Treat Gum Disease With Lakewood Dental

If you suffer from periodontal disease, you can find relief with periodontal treatment at Lakewood Dental.

Periodontitis is a severe gum disease that can cause tooth loss and life-threatening health complications if left untreated. Routine visits to your dentist are the key to healthy teeth and gums.

Your Gum Disease Treatment Options

As we age, the risk for gum disease increases. If left untreated, gum disease can destroy the support bones in your mouth.

Early detection and treatment are essential to helping you maintain good oral health. If you're suffering from gum disease, you have various dental treatment options at Lakewood Dental.

Dr. Thompson and Dr. Amann create custom treatment plans to eradicate gum disease and restore oral health for patients of all ages throughout Batesville.

Laser-Assisted Attached Procedure

LANAP (Laser-Assisted Attached Procedure) is one of the newest procedures to treat gum disease. LANAP is an FDA-approved treatment that offers a less invasive approach to treating periodontal disease.

This procedure uses a precision laser to remove infected gum tissues without sutures or stitches. It helps preserve your gum tissue and promotes healthy tissue regeneration.

Scaling & Root Planing

Excessive plaque buildup can lead to gum infection and inflammation that causes the gum tissue to pull away from the teeth, forming pockets. Scaling and root planing involve deep cleaning of these pockets and below the gum line to remove plaque and tartar.
