Laser Dentistry

80% of the adult population has some form of periodontal disease, with 100 million Americans having moderate to severe periodontitis. The destructive effects of this condition cause bleeding gums, persistent bad breath, and eventual tooth loss.

Our goal is to help prevent, detect, and treat periodontal disease in its early stages before it becomes advanced. However, for the many patients who have moderate to severe periodontitis, we are now able to offer a new FDA approved Laser treatment without the cutting, sutures, and pain of traditional gum surgery.

LANAP™ or Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure, utilizes safe and proven laser technology to gently remove harmful bacteria and diseased tissue from the gums while leaving the healthy tissue intact for reattachment purposes. The very small laser point is used between the gum and tooth to remove only the diseased tissue which is a darker color than healthy tissue. The doctor uses the laser again to heat and form a clot to help protect the newly treated gum tissue. Quite simply, the laser is able to form a clean, closed, and stable environment, allowing the body to heal itself naturally and regenerate lost bone.

No Cut - No Sew - No FearThe only FDA approved laser-based treatment for gum disease, LANAP™ is the only procedure that actually helps the bone supporting your teeth to regenerate. This laser-based approach to treating gum disease makes it easier for you to return your gums to health and the process is far more comfortable and much less invasive than gum surgery. You will experience less pain, faster healing, reduced risk of infection, decreased sensitivity, and less gum recession. In fact, 98% of LANAP™ treated patients remain stable after five years.

"I am looking forward to my next dental appointment!!!My fears are completely gone. For many years I have avoided going to the dentist because of painful past experiences. I was so ashamed of the way my smile looked that I stayed away from cameras and would not speak in public. I have a completely new attitude thanks to Dr. Kelly and his amazing staff.
The moment I walked into the door for the first time I was greeted with caring people who put me at ease. Dr. Kelly listened to my fears on every level. He understood all of my concerns, including the financial end and has worked with me to provide a long term plan that will provide me the ability to have a wonderful smile,better health and confidence, and peace of mind.
I highly recommend anyone who has ever felt their case was hopeless to make an appointment now. Dr. Kelly and everyone on his staff are wonderful and friendly and now I can SMILE! "
