Spodak Dental Group Offers Minimally-Invasive Laser Treatment for Gum Disease

Spodak Dental Group now offers a patient-friendly outpatient treatment for gum disease, the LANAP® protocol. Gum disease is as an infection of the tissues that support the teeth, and impacts more than 50% of American adults. The LANAP® protocol is the only FDA-cleared laser treatment proven to regenerate bone loss to gum disease without cutting or stitching of the gums.

“We’re pleased to offer our patients technologically advanced treatment options that fit with today’s busy lifestyles. Through the LANAP® protocol, we can offer patients a comfortable laser-based surgical option for gum disease to help save teeth,” said Dr. Tiffany Dudley, general dentist at Spodak Dental Group and a recent recipient of the LANAP® Regenerative Specialist Certification. “The procedure is fast, often painless, and patients resume daily activities immediately.”

In the initial stages of the disease, gums can become red, swollen and bleed easily. However, some patients have no symptoms at all. If the condition worsens, gums and bone that support the teeth can become seriously damaged and the teeth can become loose, fall out or have to be removed. Gum disease has been linked to serious systemic diseases including stroke, heart disease, Alzheimer’s and certain cancers.

 

Dr. Dudley strongly urges patients with gum disease to seek treatment as soon as they can. The earlier laser dentistry services are received, the more positive the outcome. Appointments can be scheduled by calling or texting Spodak Dental Group at (561) 303-2413.

The LANAP® protocol offers a proven, vastly less painful and less invasive treatment. It is also the only laser gum surgery backed with histological and clinical science. By reducing post-operative pain, the number of sessions required and the recovery time, the LANAP® treatment removes many of the reasons that so many patients hesitate to seek treatment for periodontal disease.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

 

A child of the heartland, Dr. Tiffany Dudley graduated from Michigan State University and the University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry. After finishing dental school, she moved to South Florida where she completed her General Practice Residency at the Veterans Hospital in Miami. There she served as Chief Resident until joining a practice in the Florida Keys. Committed to the idea of comprehensive dental care, she was drawn to the visionary team approach to dentistry pioneered by the Spodak Dental Group and joined the team in 2009. Dr. Dudley is the first dentist in Delray Beach to earn the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine Qualified Dental distinction. In addition, in 2019, Dr. Dudley became an American Board of Dental Sleep Medicine (ABDSM) Diplomate. Earning Diplomate status from the ABDSM is a unique honor that recognizes special competency in dental sleep medicine. Both of these distinctions continue to advance her role in the treatment of sleep-disordered breathing for the benefit of her patients.

These “emergencies” are defined as someone experiencing pain or swelling. The spirit of this mandate is to not further spread the virus by doing elective dental treatment and also to not burden our healthcare system by not having dental needs have to be seen in our hospital system.   If you are someone that fits into this category and are not currently sick, we are able to see you. Please reach out to us immediately and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.

In addition, we can also provide virtual appointments to track Invisalign progress and keep your Invisalign treatment moving forward. We may also be able to mail out new aligners if needed.
