As a leading provider of dental care in Martha’s Vineyard, Dr. Karen Gear is dedicated to offering patients the newest and most up-to-date treatment options. Dr. Gear is a specialist that focuses on diagnosing, preventing and treating diseases that develop in the soft tissue of your tooth or root canals. Being an endodontist separates her from a dentist in that she has received extensive training on root canal treatment and issues related to the teeth after receiving her dental degree.
Martha’s Vineyard Endodontics offers a variety of advanced options such as treatment of pulp (tooth nerve exposure), evaluation of a painful tooth or teeth, second opinions, root canals, re-treatments of failed root canals, dental trauma, and apical surgery (tooth root surgery). Dr. Gear is also certified to offer the FDA-cleared Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®).
LANAP® Laser Gum Surgery
LANAP® is an innovative new form of treatment that allows Dr. Gear to treat gum disease without using a blade or sutures. This means that patients will experience less pain during the procedure and will require only a minimal amount of recovery time. Additionally, LANAP® laser gum surgery can often reverse the effects of gum disease and save teeth that would normally need removal.
It is the goal of Dr. Gear to provide patients with the highest quality dental care. We know that dental care at Martha's Vineyard Endodontics is about more than just treatment, but relationships as well. This is why we give every patient our full and undivided attention.
