Treat Gum Disease With Less Pain and Discomfort

LANAP® does not require the use of a blade, or sutures. It is a minimally invasive surgery that results in very little recession and pain for the patient. The laser operates at a wavelength that can tell the difference between the diseased tissue and the healthy tissue. This means that the laser is extremely safe and selective when being used in surgery. For the first time, we can remove the diseased tissue and bacteria from your gums without harming, cutting, or removing healthy tissue!

Laser Gum Surgery vs. Traditional Gum Surgery

Looking for laser treatment in Chicago Loop? Gum disease treatment has come a long way from scalpels and sutures. Here are some chief advantages of laser gum surgery over traditional surgery:

  • Less Pain and Discomfort — Because the laser targets only the diseased tissue, Dr. Marcus can remove the bacteria without cutting or stitching, resulting in a more relaxed patient experience. Most patients experience very little pain or discomfort, so pain medication is rarely prescribed after treatment.
  • Shorter Recovery — Most patients are able to resume their daily activities immediately after the laser gum surgery procedure.
  • Quicker Healing — LANAP® is able to be so selective with the tissue it targets because of the Periolase® MVP-7™. This FDA cleared laser eradicates the bacteria and reduces the inflammation without disturbing the healthy tissue, allowing your body to heal quickly.
  • Little to No Gum Recession — Because traditional surgery uses a scalpel, the procedure always entails some degree of gum recession. The gum line may be reduced anywhere from 2-4 mm to 10-15 mm in a traditional surgery procedure. In contrast, patients experience little to no gum recession with LANAP® since no incisions are made. Limited gum recession is just one of the many reasons that patients come to Dr. Marcus for this innovative laser treatment in the Chicago Loop.
  • Reduced Inflammation and Bleeding — The PerioLase® MVP-7™ removes about 90 percent of the inflammation after one treatment. Patients experience little to no bleeding.
  • Saves Teeth — The top reason patients choose laser gum disease treatment is because they want to save and keep their natural teeth.
