In our last blog post, we discussed periodontal disease and the different stages in which it can manifest. Of course, simply knowing the symptoms and recognizing them isn’t enough – you need treatment too to help your teeth and gums stay healthy and happy! That’s where Dr. David DiGiallorenzo and his dedicated staff come in. We’re well aware that many patients in the Philadelphia area and beyond can tend to shy away from the possibility of surgery – especially the kind that would require the use of scalpels and sutures. Here in Collegeville and Williamsport, we want to simplify your restorative care into the most quick and painless options possible; that’s why we offer LANAP! With the help of this revolutionary technology, we can completely rejuvenate your gums with no cutting, no sewing, and no aching afterwards!
In the past, traditional periodontal disease treatment was performed by cutting away any infected tissues. LANAP avoids these potentially messy and frightening techniques; instead, with the help of a special laser, we’ll use this system to seamlessly remove diseased tissue and harmful toxins, as well as promote healing without the use of a single stitch. Better yet, LANAP is the only treatment available that actually encourages the regeneration of tissue in your mouth!
Does LANAP not work for your special situation? Don’t worry! Dr. DiGiallorenzo offers several other possible treatments that can treat periodontal disease, including:
- Enzyme suppression
- Antibacterial therapy
- Nutritional therapy
Our team will be sure to find the best fit for your unique needs! Plus, in our next blog post, we’ll rewind the clock and discuss some helpful prevention tips that can protect you from periodontal disease in the first place.
Contact our Williamsport or Collegeville office today to schedule an appointment with Dr. DiGiallorenzo! We welcome patients from all over Philadelphia and beyond to participate in our top-notch, wholesome dental care that puts comfort and safety first each and every time.
