Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) January 22, 2013
Michael C. Stypula, DDS, MDS, provides patients the newest option for gum disease treatment with the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure. LANAP is a laser gum surgery that utilizes the PerioLase MVP-7, which is the only FDA cleared laser for gum disease. This treatment is only available from those who have received training and certification, and only about one percent of dental professionals have this exclusive training.
As a periodontist, Dr. Stypula understands how dangerous gum disease can become if it is left untreated. Not only can it lead to gum recession, teeth that move, and even loss of teeth, but it has also been linked to a number of serious illnesses such as heart disease, diabetes, respiratory problems, stroke and low birth-weight babies. The infection in the mouth can enter the bloodstream and impact the entire body. Gum disease treatment is an important part of overall health, yet many with this problem do not visit a periodontist or other dental professional to receive the treatment they need.
LANAP does not require the use of a scalpel to remove the infected gum tissue like traditional gum surgery does, but instead uses a very selective laser. The laser only removes unhealthy tissue, which means that healthy tissue is left in the mouth and gum recession is reduced. Bacteria that cause the disease are also removed and bone is stimulated to regenerate. The entire procedure is considered minimally invasive, and most patients can go back to doing everyday activities the same day after the procedure.
With the new LANAP procedure, a periodontist can often save teeth that might have otherwise needed removal, and can reduce the recession of the gums, and improvement from traditional gum disease treatment. Additional information about LANAP is available at http://www.pittsburgh-periodontist.com.
