Manhattan, NY (PRWEB) November 03, 2012
Dr. Donna Williams of Morningside Dental Care has joined with a slowly growing number of dentist that have received the necessary education and training to utilize the PerioLase MVP-7 to perform the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure. She utilizes this procedure for periodontal disease treatment. With millions of adults affected by gum disease each year, having additional treatment methods such as LANAP is crucial to maintain their dental health.
Unfortunately, many adults do not go to a dental professional for periodontal disease treatment, and this allows the dental periodontal disease to increase, causing additional dental health problems including bleeding or receding gums and even the loss of teeth.
The dental periodontal disease LANAP treatment is quite straightforward. The dentist first utilizes a probe to determine the depth of the pockets between the teeth and the gums. The laser is then used to eliminate or kill the bacteria and dissolve the gum tissue that has become diseased, and to denature the calculus deposits. The calculus is removed with another tool and then the laser is again used to help the remaining gum tissue attach to the root.
When patients receive treatment for gum disease they not only improve their dental health, but they also decrease their risk for other health problems such as heart disease. Because the new LANAP treatment is only minimally invasive, Dr. Williams hopes more adults will seek treatment sooner rather than later.
