Periodontal disease is something that affects 80 percent of the population, and the treatment of gum disease varies from nonsurgical to surgical approaches. One of the things that I'm really excited about in our practice is we've invested in a technology that is regenerative in nature that involves a nonsurgical approach to periodontal disease. We've been able to regenerate bone in patients' mouths without surgical intervention. We have a new technology called LANAP, and by the use of this incredible laser technology, we're able to regenerate bone and basically save teeth that would have otherwise been extracted.

Healthy Gums Mean a Healthy Smile
Gum disease develops over time as bacteria on your teeth develop into plaque and then into tartar. Eventually, pockets of infection can form below your gumline and potentially lead to tooth loss.
During your exam, Dr. Trichas will look carefully at your gums and determine the best treatment for your situation. Many of our patients can restore their gums with non-surgical “deep cleaning” involving scaling and root planing. We will first use special dental tools to remove, or scale, built-up tartar and bacteria below the gumline. Then we’ll smooth, or plane, the roots to help prevent bacteria from recollecting. You may need to have this treatment repeated every few months if you’re prone to gum infection.
If your gum disease is more advanced, we also offer the innovative LANAP procedure. A gentle laser will safely remove diseased gum tissue without harming your healthy gums. Once the damaged tissue is removed, your gums can begin the healing process. Best of all, this procedure doesn’t require any cutting or stitches like traditional gum surgery does. You’ll experience comfortable healing with minimal downtime.
Don’t let your gums suffer any longer. Basking Ridge gum disease treatment from Dr. Trichas will get your mouth back into shape! Call us today at (908) 356-6635 to set up an appointment.
