LANAP® Laser Treatment in Corpus Christi, TX
LANAP Laser Treatment Corpus Christi, TXIf you need gum disease treatment in Corpus Christi, you’re in good company. Gum disease doesn’t discriminate. Almost everyone is affected by it to some degree. The good news is that Dr. Tilman Richards provides his patients with a revolutionary laser gum disease treatment in Corpus Christi that’s safe, gentle, and beyond effective.

Gum disease treatment is critical to keeping your natural teeth intact, healthy and strong. Patients who choose gum disease treatment in Corpus Christi with Dr. Richards also lower their risk of developing heart disease, cancer and giving birth to low-birth weight infants.


Dr. Richard’s patients prefer the laser gum surgery alternative to traditional gum disease treatment, and who can blame them?

Look how traditional gum disease treatment works:

• A scalpel is used to cut the gums open (general anesthetic is needed), followed by deep scraping to remove bacteria, which ends up destroying the nearby healthy tissue as well.
• Sometimes existing teeth need to be pulled.
• The gums usually bleed quite heavily and patients wake up with sutures and packing between their teeth and gums.
• Recovery takes time and it hurts. Pain medication is commonly prescribed.
• Only soft foods are allowed until the gums heal.

The Laser Gum Surgery Alternative for Gum Disease Treatment

Supported by scientific research and human histological studies, the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) with Dr. Richards delivers long-term gum disease treatment that is unparalleled to traditional methods. LANAP® is also the only FDA-cleared laser treatment available for gum disease treatment. Consider the benefits:

• LANAP® gum disease treatment – no cutting, bandages, and typically no need for pain medication

• Keep your existing teeth
• Little to no bleeding – the PerioLase® MVP-7™ dental laser goes straight to the harmful bacteria that cause 90 percent of inflammation and bleeding and kills it.
• Recovery is fast – get back to your daily routine in 24 hours or less
• Hold onto your gum line – the laser never touches healthy gum tissue
• Does not cause any tooth sensitivity
• Lasting and predictable outcomes – laser gum disease treatment results are most successful when patients practice good oral hygiene.
• Grow new bone around existing teeth – LANAP® is the only laser gum surgery alternative scientifically proven to restore bone

Fully trained and certified to perform LANAP® laser gum surgery, Dr. Richards uses the PerioLase® MVP-7™ dental laser, which us also FDA-cleared for use during LANAP®.


The PerioLase® MVP-7™ is extraordinarily precise and will only seek harmful bacteria hiding within the gum pockets without ever harming or even touching your healthy gum tissue. This is rare and remarkable because the tissue left behind is able to reattach to the surface roots of your teeth. This gum surgery alternative even stimulates new bone growth around the teeth, significantly decreasing your risk of tooth loss.
