LANAP® Laser Gum Disease Treatment
LANAP® is the world’s first ever FDA cleared protocol for True Regeneration™. This means we can now not only treat your gum disease with a less invasive, laser alternative to surgery, but we can actually regenerate healthy gum tissue, reverse the devastating effects of gum disease, and save teeth.
At Neighborhood Smiles, one of our primary missions as your allies for oral health is to prevent tooth decay. Tooth decay is the #1 most common chronic disease among children in America. That’s why we’re proud to partner with CariFree® in this mission. CariFree® offers a wide range of specialty products including toothpastes, rinses and gels to help keep tooth decay at bay.
In the past, the only way we could get an up-close-and-personal look at the surfaces of your mouth was through the magic of sight with the help of a tiny dental mirror. Thankfully, today, with the help of intraoral cameras, we can take live, 360°, high resolution images that can be viewed right from the dental chair – giving doctors a better view, and patients the chance to take a more active role in understanding their oral health.
Digital x-rays have truly revolutionized the dental and healthcare industries for the better. Digital x-rays less radiation so they are safer than traditional x-rays, and more convenient as they can be taken in a matter of seconds right from the dental chair.
