Gentle, Effective Laser Gum Disease Treatment is Here!

If you need gum disease treatment, visit Dr. Shefter and Dr. Fertik, two of the periodontists in the Asheville region to offer the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®). LANAP® is today’s preferred, FDA cleared alternative to traditional gum disease treatment. Laser is a revolutionary gum disease treatment that we use for patients with moderate to severe periodontal disease. No more cutting, stitches, or a long and painful recovery. Unlike scalpel surgery, LANAP® is a pioneering technology that precisely targets bacteria and diseased tissue between the teeth and gums without harming healthy gum tissue. 

LANAP® is an effective and dependable gum disease treatment that is minimally painful and even therapeutic. Medical research and successful results experienced routinely by our very own patients show that LANAP® can even save existing teeth because it generates new bone growth in the jaw! Learn more about this exciting laser gum disease treatment on our website. 

Dental implants for Missing Teeth

Say goodbye to conventional dentures and bridges with dental implants. Dental implants are today’s favored alternative for patients with missing teeth who want a more natural, healthier, dependable smile. Dental implants are surgically placed into the jaw, last for decades, and look and feel just like natural teeth. Unlike older dental appliances, which wear out, slip, make embarrassing noises, and can contribute to bone loss, dental implants mimic actual tooth roots by stimulating the bone every day to keep it active. A beautiful, functional smile can be yours with dental implants. Learn more about dental implants on our website.
