Jacksonville, FL (PRWEB) September 26, 2012

Dr. Richard E. Aguila of Contemporary Implant Dentistry & Periodontics trained and is now certified to use the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure for the treatment of gum disease. LANAP is a revolutionary method of treatment, and Dr. Aguila has seen excellent results in patients who suffer from periodontal disease.

Using the Periolase MVP-7 laser Dr. Aguila has joined only one percent of dental professionals who are trained on the LANAP procedure. The procedure begins with the doctor measuring the periodontal pocket depth with a probe to determine how detached from the root the gum has become. Next, he uses the laser's pulsed light to dissolve the tissue that has become diseased and to kill the gum disease causing bacteria. Ultrasonic scalers are used to scrape off the calculus deposits hidden in the pocket areas. The laser is used again to stimulate the bone, root and soft tissue so that the remaining healthy tissue will attach to the tooth. The bone will begin regeneration. The clot created by the tissue promotes fast healing.

Since the laser is selective, only the gum tissue that has been damaged by periodontal disease is dissolved. The healthy tissue is left intact, which means that there is less likelihood of gum recession after the procedure. Because a laser is used instead of a scalpel, the entire procedure is only minimally invasive and healing time is improved.

Dr. Aguila wants people to know about the new LANAP procedure because there are millions of Americans that suffer from gum disease, and many of them do not seek treatment. The new LANAP procedure can help to minimize pain and can result in a relatively short recovery period. This makes it an excellent option for treatment.
