About

Bio

Dr. Eric Linden is a periodontist (gum disease specialist) in the field of Laser Periodontal Surgery which includes LANAP, periodontics, regeneration, and dental implants. He has been practicing his specialty since 1985. Dr. Linden is one of the first LANAP practitioners on the east coast. With 26 years' experience in periodontal specialty practice, he now performs LANAP laser procedures every day. He has treated thousands of patients, performing tooth extractions, implants, and other periodontal procedures with LANAP. Unfortunately, most periodontists still treat advanced gum disease with traditional surgery which is better treated with LANAP. Although Dr. Linden still utilizes traditional surgery in some cases, a majority of his patients qualify for the LANAP protocol. Many of Dr. Linden's patients are direct referrals from other dentists, periodontists, medical professionals, and educated patients seeking the most advanced, innovative, and least invasive techniques available.

Specialties

Peroxide issues: Do not use 100% peroxide. The use of full strenght peroxide in mouth has been shown to cause some changes in the gingival ( gum cells). www.drgums.com

Sometimes but...: If you have an infected tooth and it effects the sinuses, then a dental specialist could determine if the tooth is worth saving and in conjunction with your physician work out a treatment plan. Sometimes, it is a dental procedure that can get rid of the infection and all is stable. Other times, there is a concurrent sinus infection that needs to be dealt with as well.

Yes..choose wisely: Yes. Your periodontist could outline a treatment plan after a proper diagnosis. Be sure that he or she uses an fda-approved laser with a proven track record. Ask which laser and why that particular one is proposed. There are lasers of different wavelengths and each one has different indications. Also ask how much experience your periodontist has in using that particular laser and lasers in general.
