Periodontal Treatment


Complete Periodontal Care

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about one in every two American adults age 30 and older have gum disease. Gum disease, or periodontal disease, is the infection of the tissues that surround and support your teeth. Many people don’t realize they have gum disease because it’s virtually painless. It occurs when plaque builds up and turns into calculus or tartar. If unremoved, tartar can destroy your teeth, and the bone that supports them, leading to swollen, red, and bleeding gums. If you suspect that you have gum disease, be sure to make an appointment with the experienced staff at Joyner Dental Arts. We specialize in periodontal treatment while making you feel comfortable and cared for.

LANAP stands for Laser Assisted NEW Attachment Procedure(LAR) and is an FDA-approved laser treatment that offers less pain and more success than traditional surgical methods. LANAP is the only scientifically researched and proven dental laser that promotes new bone growth as well as gum tissue reattachment. Many patients enjoy the fact that LANAP is designed to target the source of gum disease and inflammation without harming or removing healthy gum tissue.
