Lindsay B. Eastman, DDS, MS, PA, is one of an elite group of dental professionals that is able to offer his patients the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure for periodontal disease treatment. Millions of Americans suffer from gum disease, but many do not seek the necessary treatment. With the new LANAP option, Dr. Eastman is hoping more patients will be willing to get the treatment they so desperately need.
Many patients don't realize that brushing and flossing their teeth daily is absolutely necessary in order to avoid periodontal or gum disease. When this routine is not properly followed, there are areas or pockets in the gums that allow bacteria to gather and even enter the bloodstream directly. This can lead to serious health problems such as diabetes, pancreatic cancer and even heart disease, among others. Dr. Eastman understands the repercussions of gum disease and wants his patients who suffer from it to receive periodontal disease treatment as quickly as possible.
The LANAP procedure is a minimally invasive method of removing diseased gum tissue and bacteria from the mouth. It does not damage healthy tissue or bone, but actually stimulates the healthy tissue to re-attach to the bone and the bone to begin to regenerate. The procedure uses a specialized laser that is very selective, so there is no cutting or suturing involved. The laser used is the PerioLase MVP-7, which is the only laser that has been cleared by the FDA for periodontal disease treatment.
The procedure tends to cause very little discomfort or pain, and it helps to save more of the healthy gum tissue so that gum recession is less of a problem. Dr. Eastman is thrilled to be able to offer this procedure to his patients with gum disease. He works with each patient to develop a proper treatment plan for their individual needs.
