New York, New York (PRWEB) July 13, 2012
When patients visit Dr. Gomez, they now have another weapon in the arsenal designed for periodontal disease treatment. Giving her patients more options allows Dr. Gomez to treat patients individually and with the best method for their needs. For instance, the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure is minimally invasive and usually allows the patient to retain his or her healthy gum tissue while eliminating the bacteria that causes gum disease.
Dr. Gomez uses LANAP to selectively eliminate bacteria and diseased gum tissue from the affected area. Healthy gum tissue is stimulated so that it has a better chance of re-attaching to the tooth, and the bone is stimulated by the laser to help it regenerate. This method of periodontal disease treatment tends to create minimal discomfort or pain for the patient and often results in very short down-time.
While millions of Americans suffer from gum disease, relatively few of them seem to realize the far-reaching effects of the disease. It is proven that there are connections between gum disease and diabetes, pancreatic cancer and heart disease, just to list a few. Patients should receive periodontal disease treatment as early as possible to help them avoid the oral health problems associated with it, as well as these other health problems. Patients can become educated about gum disease and the different methods of treatment that are now being offered. Dr. Gomez is highly skilled with the LANAP procedure as well as other procedures used for periodontal disease treatment.
