Irvine, CA (PRWEB) December 06, 2012
Dr. Wayne A. Gouvion of Gouvion & Grant Dentistry can now successfully treat patients suffering from gum infection with the new Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure or LANAP process. Gum or periodontal disease affects millions of adult Americans and is reaching epidemic proportions. The new FDA cleared periodontal disease treatment procedure kills bacteria and removes diseased tissue without using a scalpel to cut away the unhealthy gums. The laser stimulates the gums to re-attach to the roots of the teeth and bone regeneration is triggered.
As a periodontal disease treatment, the LANAP procedure is only minimally invasive. This allows the body to self-heal more quickly than with traditional surgery. In addition, most patients feel little, if any, pain during the procedure. The results show that up to 90 percent of the gum infection can be removed from the mouth in a single treatment. The LANAP laser has been scientifically proven to remove the disease without negatively impacting the healthy tissue. Inflammation and bleeding are kept under control during the procedure.
As LANAP is performed, Dr. Gouvion utilizes the PerioLase MVP-7 laser and its fiber optic tip to kill the bacteria. Periodontal pocket depths are measured so that the bacteria and infected gums can be removed. The laser is also designed to denature the tartar or calculus below the gum line so that it is easier to remove. The teeth roots and bone are stimulated to regenerate and clotting is promoted so that the gums will re-attach to the teeth without requiring sutures to hold them in place.
Gum infection can lead to serious health problems if not treated because the infection can spread through the bloodstream. In order to combat gum disease, Dr. Gouvion has become trained and certified on the LANAP procedure in order to offer patients an alternative to traditional methods of periodontal disease treatment. This advanced procedure is highly accurate and effective. More information about gum disease, the LANAP procedure and its advantages can be found at http://www.irvinelanap.com.
