Laser & Traditional Gum Therapy for Periodontal Bone Loss
Click Here for a Video on the LANAP Protocol
Half of all adults in America have periodontal disease, also known as gum disease. This chronic infection causes catastrophic bone loss that results in unstable and, ultimately, lost teeth.
Loudoun Periodontics is proud to provide minimally invasive procedures for patients with gum disease. We have the tools and resources to effectively stop bone loss progression and often regenerate lost bone, including the PerioLase MVP-7, the only laser FDA-approved for true regeneration of lost bone. Using our 3D cone beam CT scanner, we can also detect subtleties of bone loss, as well as a variety of other dental issues that other radiographic exams would miss.
From surgical and non-surgical gum treatments to laser therapy and gum reshaping, Dr. Lisa Marvil is here to help. Together, we will determine the best treatment plan for your needs. Our team has the skills and expertise to give you a lifelong, beautiful smile.
Esthetic & Functional Gum Recontouring Procedures
Our practice performs a full range of gum recontouring procedures for both esthetic and functional reasons. We have the capability to shorten teeth that are too long, lengthen teeth that are too short, and cover exposed root surfaces that cause sensitive teeth. Dr. Marvil also provides surgical treatments that allow restorative dentists to create attractive, long-lasting restorations and tooth-replacement options.
While our goal is always to save natural teeth, we offer the placement of dental implants to restore teeth with disease that is too advanced to be treated. Dr. Marvil has the special knowledge and training to give you teeth that look, feel and function just like your own. She will work closely with your general dentist to ensure your smile is more beautiful than ever before. Whether you need to replace a single tooth or several teeth, Dr. Marvil will develop the best plan and after the procedure, monitor your implant(s), teeth and gums to ensure they are healthy.
