Restore Your Gums With Gum Disease Treatment in Orlando
Gum disease is the most common cause of tooth loss in adults. In the early stages, it is easily reversible with proper oral hygiene and a professional teeth cleaning from the skilled team at Overmeyer Family Dental. However, moderate to severe gum disease needs special attention. Using the LANAP system, our Orlando gum disease treatment offers you these benefits:
- Little or no discomfort pre-op or post-op.
- No incisions or stitches.
- Minimal swelling and bleeding.
- Reduced risk of tooth sensitivity and infection.
- Quick healing and minimal to no down time.

How LANAP Works to Repair Your Gums
If deep cleaning (root scaling and planing) and antimicrobial treatments fail to restore gum health, we offer noninvasive, comfortable gum disease treatment using LANAP (laser assisted new attachment procedure), a painless alternative to gum surgery. This treatment is just as effective as periodontal surgery, but is much more comfortable and requires less down time.
Traditional gum surgery requires the removal of soft tissues using scalpels to shrink the gum pockets where bacteria hide and multiply. The LANAP procedure makes use of precision laser beams (Periolase MVP-7) to eliminate calculus (hardened plaque), bacteria, and toxins near and under the gumline.
Overmeyer Family Dental is one of the few practices in the country offering the pain-free LANAP gum procedure. At your checkup or consultation, our dentist will perform a complete mouth evaluation and check the depth of the gum pockets. During your treatment, we will use a laser to remove bacteria and tartar before sealing the gums.
