Not all dentists in Houston use lasers in dental procedures and surgeries. But in a number of areas including restoring gums to good health, lasers offer excellent results that benefit the patient in a number of ways. At The Houston Dentists, LANAP® laser gum surgery is available for gum disease treatment by Doctors Thomas Hedge and Kathy Frazar. It’s also used in additional areas, such as gum lifts.

Benefits of LANAP Laser Gum Surgery


Laser gum surgery using the LANAP® protocol involves a procedure and equipment that are approved by the FDA. Laser gum surgery allows for precision in removing unhealthy tissue and leaving healthy tissue intact and is a great option due to the fact that it’s quick, pain-free, does not require stitches, and can be excellent for people with bleeding disorders as well as for pregnant women. Laser gum surgery for gum disease treatment can help save your natural teeth and could result in bacteria eradication in as few as 1 or 2 treatments without a lot of pain, bleeding, or recovery time. Most people who have laser gum surgery don’t require any recovery time at all.
