Indianapolis, IN (PRWEB) January 23, 2013
Dr. Robert Hindman from West 10th Dental Group is a periodontist specially trained in laser surgery, and he is now offering the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure to his local patients. He understands how common gum disease is, and that many patients are suffering from this problem yet not seeking treatment. In fact, out of the millions of Americans that have periodontal disease, only small percentages are actually doing something about it. With the new LANAP laser surgery, Dr. Hindman is hoping more patients will get the help they need.
LANAP utilizes a very specialized laser that selectively attacks only the bacteria and diseased gum tissue. It does not damage healthy gum tissue and may stimulate the bone to regenerate. This means that the diseased gums and bacteria can be removed without the need for a scalpel to cut the gums away. More gum tissue can be saved, which means receding gums are less of a problem.
The laser surgery causes minimal discomfort to the patient, and the patient can usually resume everyday activities within a short time of completing the procedure. Now people won't need to schedule lots of time off of work to get the dental assistance they need. As a periodontist, Dr. Hindman knows how insidious gum disease can be and provides help for his patients who are suffering.
Allowing gum disease to go unchecked can lead to a variety of dental issues and has been associated with other serious health problems. Receiving treatment can eliminate the problem, so learn more about LANAP laser surgery today by visiting http://www.indianapolislaserdentist.com.
