FDA approved Laser reverses Gum Disease
Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure or LANAP
Drs Gallardo and Lamas are proud to announce that the PerioLase Laser has arrived in the City of Miami. Similar to what LASIK did for eye problems, this patented and FDA cleared laser therapy allows us to treat periodontal patients with a minimally invasive breakthrough procedure. For the first time, Laser Periodontal Therapy™ is available for our patients otherwise facing gum surgery for periodontal disease.
If you're like millions of other Americans, you could be one of more than 75% of Americans who have periodontal disease, the major cause of tooth loss in adults. Until now, that meant surgery and sutures. But today, our office offers LANAP™. You can feel confident knowing Drs Gallardo and Lamas continue to have world-class technology and care.

Dental Implants - These are teeth that look and feel just like your own! When a tooth is lost, it's best to replace it with an implant as promptly as possible. After tooth loss, the load on each remaining tooth is increased because there are fewer of them. To restore proper chewing ability, the support lost from the missing tooth needs to be increased.
To compare chewing efficiency, let's assume a patient with all his or her natural teeth can chew at 100 percent efficiency. With every tooth that is lost, the amount of chewing efficiency decrease depends on whether or not the teeth are replaced and how. Ultimately, if all teeth are lost, the patient will have perhaps a 15 to 18 percent chewing efficiency (even with good-fitting dentures on adequate bony ridges).
Dental implants are designed to provide a foundation for replacement teeth that look, feel, and function like natural teeth. The person who has lost teeth regains the ability to eat virtually anything and can smile with confidence, knowing that teeth appear natural and that facial contours are preserved.
