  • If you have been told you have periodontal (gum) disease, you’re not alone. Many adults in the U.S. currently have some form of the disease. The main cause of periodontal disease is plaque, but other factors affect the health of your gums and include age, smoking/tobacco use, genetics, stress, medications, poor nutrition and more.

    Periodontal diseases range from simple gum inflammation to serious disease that results in major damage to the soft tissue and bone that support the teeth. Whether your gum disease is stopped, slowed, or gets worse depends a great deal on how well you care for your teeth and gums every day, from this point forward.

    When gingivitis is not treated, it can advance to periodontitis, which means there is inflammation around the tooth. In periodontitis, gums pull away from the teeth and form spaces, called pockets, that become infected. The body’s immune system fights the bacteria as the plaque spreads and grows below the gum line. Bacterial toxins and the body’s natural response to infection start to break down the bone and connective tissue that hold teeth in place. If not treated, the bones, gums, and tissue that support the teeth are destroyed and the teeth may eventually have to be removed.

    A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of periodontal disease, the placement of dental implants, and the treatment of oral inflammation. Periodontists are also familiar with the latest techniques for diagnosing and treating periodontal disease, and are also trained in performing cosmetic periodontal procedures.

    Spodak Dental Group also offers an FDA-cleared laser treatment called the LANAP protocol, which has many benefits when compared to traditional gum surgery. The LANAP protocol offers patients a less painful, more successful treatment alternative to conventional surgery because there is no need for cutting or sutures.

    LANAP and LAR (Laser Assisted Regeneration) are the only scientifically, research proven methodologies that result in true periodontal regeneration, new bone growth and gum tissue reattachment. It is minimally invasive surgery that does not require the need for a blade or sutures, and offers very little recession and pain for the patient. The laser uses a particular wavelength that tells the difference between non-healthy and healthy tissue, meaning that it is very safe and selective.

    This is the first time periodontists can remove diseased tissue and bacteria from gums without causing damage to healthy tissue. Additionally, there is less pain and downtime, less recession of the gum line, and less time needed to heal when compared with traditional gum surgery.

    The LANAP protocol has also better long-term results and is more predictable when it comes to bone regeneration and connective reattachment of the treated tissue. The laser stimulates the bone that surrounds the root of the tooth and has been proven to create regeneration, and, in many cases, often saving teeth that might have been previously extracted due to bone loss. In many cases, the treatment can even reverse the effects of periodontal disease and the patient’s gum health will continue to improve over time.

    Our facility was designed with your healing in mind

    Bi•o•phil•i•a

    noun a scientific movement linking human health and responsiveness to natural environments

    Life loves life. It may seem like common sense to some, but it’s actually real science. Recent studies in biophilia have shown that people actually heal faster and perform better when surrounded by nature and natural light, which is why we designed every inch of this facility based on this principle.

    Each operatory has floor-to-ceiling windows and live plants, which allow for a calming and healing environment for the patient. Doctors and team members also benefit as natural lighting lowers the occurrence of human errors.
