Periodontal disease, also called gum disease, is an infection of the gums and bones that hold the teeth in place. If left untreated, gum disease can cause tooth loss. The good news is, gum disease is easy to prevent with proper dental hygiene and regular dental appointments.
- Gingivitis is the initial stage of periodontal disease. Gum areas become increasingly red or dark and may bleed easily and appear swollen. At this stage, the disease is reversible. If not treated, gingivitis may lead to a more serious condition called periodontitis.
- Periodontitis is an advanced stage of gum disease and it irreversibly damages gums, bones and other structures that support the teeth. At this stage, more complex treatment is necessary to prevent tooth loss.
- Aggressive periodontitis: This is the rapid progression of periodontitis. Gingival tissue, gingival ligaments (which hold your teeth in place), and bone destruction progress at an advanced pace.
- Chronic periodontitis: Describes inflammation of the supporting gingival tissues of the teeth and bone loss. This is the most common form and is characterized by gum recession and gingival pockets. Deterioration usually occurs slowly.
- Systemic periodontitis: Is the development of gum disease due to systemic disease. Systemic conditions can include:
6. Necrotizing periodontal disease: This type of gum disease occurs most commonly in people suffering from systemic diseases including malnutrition, immunosuppression, and HIV. Necrosis is the death of living tissue meaning the gingival tissue, periodontal ligaments, and alveolar bone are not eaten away by disease, but are deprived of the nourishment they need to remain healthy.
• Bleeding gums.
• Painful n swollen gums.
• gums that have pulled away from the teeth.
• pus between teeth and gums.
• Persistent bad breath or bad taste.
• Permanent teeth that are loose, separating or changing position.
Research is increasingly showing a strong relationship between dental care, specifically gum disease, and various medical conditions. Gum disease has been linked to increased risk of heart disease, diabetes, cancer, premature birth and low birth-weight babies.

The LANAP procedure is a protocol that deals with inflammation, the infectious process, occlusion, tooth mobility, and an osseous component. It is a rather simple, but elegant, protocol that tips the scales in favor of periodontal regeneration.
Patients seeking an alternative to traditional surgery and are familiar and comfortable with the use of lasers for LASIK treatment for their eyes. Thus, they consider laser treatment for periodontal disease a viable alternative. Clinically, what becomes immediately apparent postoperatively isminimal discomfort, shrinkage of swollen, puffy gums, and reduction of bleeding.
After the procedure, patients can see that the tissues feel and look healthier. Since LANAP treatment is not a cut-and-sew procedure, no native tissues are injured; the recession associated with traditional surgery is not present. Consequently, the patients do not have root sensitivity or teeth that appear longer.
Periodontal, or gum related care is the fourth area benefiting in some cases from dental lasers. Laser dentistry is currently used for recontouring or reshaping gums, removing extra or diseased gum tissue associated with the use of certain medications or periodontal disease, and removing the bacteria in periodontal pockets to promote healing.
Healing time and post operative discomfort can be significantly reduced over the traditional surgical methods.
