Some research estimates that as much as 80% of US adults suffer from some form of periodontal (gum) disease, and the advanced form, periodontitis, is the leading cause of tooth loss in the US. Gum disease occurs as a result of plaque irritating gums. The mild form of periodontal disease is called gingivitis, and can typically be treated with more frequent teeth cleanings. Left untreated, the irritated gum tissue forms sores and pockets between the teeth and gums. At this point, treatment becomes much more difficult. LANAP treatment is an innovative periodontal therapy that significantly reduces healing time, discomfort, and risk for recurrence.
