Abington, MA (PRWEB) October 01, 2013
Dentist Dr. Michael Thomas can now remove gum disease and help more patients in Abington, MA qualify for dental implants through laser gum surgery, a minimally invasive treatment that uses laser technology to eradicate infection. With the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure, Dr. Thomas can remove harmful bacteria without disturbing healthy gum tissue, minimizing patients’ discomfort and healing time.
In order to qualify for dental implants, a patient’s mouth should be free of disease and infection, so some type of treatment is usually necessary to restore oral health prior to implant surgery. In less severe cases, Dr. Thomas may be able to remove periodontal disease with simple scaling and root planing. In more advanced cases however, LANAP® can serve as an alternative to invasive traditional surgery.
Laser gum surgery can also help improve patients’ candidacy for dental implants by preventing further deterioration. LANAP® employs the highly advanced laser technology of the PerioLase® MVP-7™, the only FDA cleared laser for gum disease treatment, to stimulate the bone around the root of the tooth in addition to removing infection. This bone stimulation increases the possibility of saving the patient’s natural teeth. For teeth that cannot be saved, Dr. Thomas replaces them with dental implants.
