Monroe, CT (PRWEB) June 22, 2012
Dr. Richard Amato, a periodontist in Monroe, CT, is introducing the new Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure to his patients that suffer from gum disease. Gum disease is a problem that affects millions of Americans each year. The new LANAP treatment is designed to kill and remove bacteria that hide within the pockets of the gums without needing to cut the gums down. The gums are stimulated to re-attach to the teeth, and at the same time, the bone is stimulated to re-grow, which can help to save teeth.
With the growing problem of gum disease in this country, patients want to receive the kind of help that periodontist Richard Amato can provide. As a treatment program, LANAP is minimally invasive, which boosts the ability of the body to self-heal. In general, the LANAP treatment causes minimal pain and provides excellent, long-term results. As the only federally cleared laser treatment that is scientifically proven to do what it claims, LANAP can reduce inflammation in your mouth as it controls bleeding.
To perform the procedure, Dr. Amato uses a small laser with a fiber optic tip to eliminate bacteria while leaving the healthy tissue alone. First, the pocket depth is measured with a probe and then the bacteria are removed. The laser denatures the calculus for better removal, and ultrasonic scalers are used to remove calculus or tarter deposits below the gum line. The laser then stimulates the bone, root and soft tissue as well as forming a clot so that the healing process can begin.
As a periodontist, Dr. Amato understands the need to treat gum disease before it causes further complications and health problems that could be serious. This is one reason he specializes in the use of LANAP to treat this disease. As a periodontist that is interested in the overall health of his patients, Dr. Amato appreciates this new technology and its ability to help him treat patients.
