Gum Disease Treatment in Orlando, FL : Overmeyer Family Dental
Gum disease is the most common cause of tooth loss in adults. Gum disease starts when plaque accumulates between the teeth and under the gums. At the early stages, gum disease is easily reversible with professional teeth cleaning and proper oral hygiene. However, moderate to severe gum disease needs special attention.
If deep cleaning (root scaling and planing) and antimicrobial treatments fail to restore gum health, gum surgery or pocket reduction surgery is recommended. Overmeyer Family Dental offers noninvasive, comfortable gum disease treatment using LANAP (laser assisted new attachment procedure), a painless alternative to gum surgery.
Below you will find some basic information on gum disease and our LANAP gum disease treatment options. For more information about gum disease treatment, please feel free to contact our team. We will be happy to help you.

These are all symptoms that you have an infection. Please seek help to avoid major dental problems including tooth loss.
How LANAP Works
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.
LANAP gum disease treatment is just as effective as periodontal surgery, but the patient feels little or no discomfort pre-op and post-op. Other benefits of LANAP treatment includes no stitches, minimal swelling and bleeding, reduced risk of tooth sensitivity and infection, quick healing, and minimal to no downtime. LANAP can also be the least expensive way to save natural teeth previously considered to be hopeless.
Overmeyer Family Dental is one of the few practices in the country offering the pain-free LANAP gum procedure. Your dentist will perform a complete mouth evaluation and check the depth of the gum pockets during the consultation. During treatment, your dentist will use a laser to remove bacteria and tartar before sealing the gums.
