Options for gum disease treatment in Tucson, AZ have changed considerably. Laser gum surgery with Dr. Robert Hawke makes treatment less invasive and less painful than conventional methods.

Dr. Hawke is one of few dental professionals to perform the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) for gum disease treatment. Supported by medical research and human histological studies, LANAP® is FDA-cleared and proven to be one of the safest and most effective laser gum surgery treatments available for treating moderate to severe gum disease. LANAP® provides lasting therapeutic benefits that can only be achieved with laser gum surgery.

Why More Patients Choose LANAP

• Less Pain. Laser gum surgery attacks diseased gum tissue and bacteria without cutting into the gum line. That means no heavy bleeding or stiches, giving patients a more comfortable experience.

• Faster Healing and Recovery. Dr. Hawke uses the FDA-cleared Periolase® MVP-7™ during laser gum surgery because it is remarkably precise. It has the unique ability to identify and attack bacteria without harming nearby gum tissue. There is far less inflammation, up to 90 percent less, reduced bleeding, and a faster recovery. Most patients can return to normal activity in 24 hours or less without pain medication.

• Minimal Gum Recession. Unlike scalpel gum disease treatment, which can shorten the gum line significantly, laser gum surgery reduces that risk. Patients who choose LANAP® with Dr. Hawke enjoy very little, if any, loss of gum tissue because the laser never touches healthy tissue.

• Preserves Teeth. Laser gum surgery has the remarkable ability to generate bone growth around existing teeth. Patients regularly seek laser gum surgery with Dr. Hawke, because they want to hold on to their natural teeth. LANAP® is scientifically proven to grow bone and protect teeth.
