Gum disease is a dangerous condition that can irreversibly damage your smile and put your physical health at risk. In years past, your only option for treating advanced periodontal disease was osseous surgery involving scalpels, incisions, and sutures. Today, our board-certified periodontist, Dr. Constantin Farah, offers a dental laser-assisted alternative with LANAP® in Canton, OH. Minimally invasive and comfortable, LANAP is your solution for treating gum disease if you fear traditional treatment. Don’t let your anxieties keep you from restoring the health and function of your smile—choose LANAP instead!
LANAP uses the gentle power of laser energy instead of scalpels, drills, or dental scalers. When completed by a certified LANAP periodontist like Dr. Farah, your procedure will be precise and comfortable while minimizing any associated anxiety or pain. Using a dental laser, he will gently vaporize diseased tissue and kill bacteria on contact deep within the periodontal pockets around teeth. Next, the teeth are cleared of tartar and damaged bone is modified. Unique to the specialized PerioLase® MVP-7™ dental laser used for LANAP, Dr. Farah uses the targeted laser energy to create a fibrin clot in the pockets around each tooth and jumpstart the regeneration of new tissues. As the site heals, healthy gums reattach around teeth to reduce pocket depth and seal out future bacterial plaque and tartar buildup.
Not all dentists are certified to offer LANAP, and it’s important to find a clinician who has not only completed the required training but has experience in this protocol as well. Dr. Farah has 37 years of experience as a gum specialist, is a director of numerous study clubs, and maintains board certification with the American Board of Periodontology. His dedication to his field and patients is further demonstrated by undergoing the necessary training to offer minimally invasive gum disease laser gum surgery. In addition to his extensive experience in traditional treatments, he the only periodontist in the Canton, OH area certified to offer LANAP. With this protocol, he can ensure patients fearful of conventional surgery receive the periodontal care needed to achieve and maintain functional, healthy smiles for life.
