Gum disease is common and treatable

When diagnosed with gum disease it’s normal to feel fear, disappointment, embarrassment or disbelief. But gum disease is common and treatable. Dr. Dassani and her team will take excellent care of you.

Recognizing Gum Disease

If you haven’t had an official diagnosis but notice blood in the sink when you brush or floss— it’s time to call Dr. Dassani. If left untreated, gum disease has been linked to severe systemic health issues like stroke, heart attack and Alzheimer’s. Don’t risk it. Make sure you call if you notice any of the signs or symptoms.

Signs and Symptoms

  • Bleeding gums
  • Bad breath
  • Loose teeth
  • Teeth no longer fitting together normally
  • Pain when eating
  • Swollen or puffy gums
  • Receding gums

Scaling & Root Planing

Scaling and root planing is often accurately described as a deep cleaning. During the procedure, Dr. Dassani will remove the plaque settled in the pockets between your gums and teeth. Then, she will smooth the tooth root so your teeth can reattach to your gums.

Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure– LANAP®

If Dr. Dassani thinks you require surgery to remove the diseased gum tissue, LANAP is a minimally invasive (no cutting or sutures) option. Patients love that recovery time is quick and the procedure encourages natural regrowth of bone. Cleared by the FDA, LANAP is the no-fear treatment Dr. Dassani prefers.

Why we love LANAP

  • Quick recovery time
  • Predictable outcomes
  • No cutting or sutures
  • Leaves healthy tissue intact
  • Fewer post-op infections
  • Less pain, bleeding, & sensitivity
  • Regenerates gum & bone tissue
  • Protects & saves teeth
  • Reverses progression of gum disease

If you have gum disease and your dentist has suggested traditional surgery

– get a second opinion from Dr. Dassani. You may be a great candidate for LANAP.

Chao Pinhole® Technique

If your teeth seem to be getting longer, your gums might be receding. Gum recession treatment can be painful and require cutting and grafting. Dr. Dassani wants a better experience for her patients so she is a certified Chao Pinhole® Technique dentist.

Tunnel Technique

This less invasive treatment for gum disease may also be an option. Without cutting, Dr. Dassani carefully inserts tissue between the gums and tooth before using a single suture to keep the tissue graft in place.

Benefits of the tunnel technique

  • Incision free
  • Less pain
  • Minimal downtime
  • High success rates

Gum Grafting

Gum grafting is the most common approach to treating receding gums. Dr. Dassani will remove a small amount of tissue from your palate and stitch it into place where your gums need the most support.
