New York, NY (PRWEB) October 08, 2013
With the noninvasive Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP), NYC periodontist Dr. Scott Kissel helps alleviate the anxiety and discomfort that many patients associate with traditional gum surgery procedures.
According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, one out of every two American adults over the age of 30 has some form of gum disease. If not treated in the early stages, gum disease causes gradual bone deterioration and tooth loss eventually occurs as a result of the instability. Since early intervention can often reverse the damage, patients need more gum disease information in order to recognize the symptoms and understand their treatment options.
Because LANAP is still a relatively new procedure, many people are unaware that a noninvasive option for treating periodontal disease exists. Despite the many advantages that LANAP offers over traditional surgery, only one percent of dental professionals in the United States are certified to perform the procedure. People in some areas of the country must travel to other states in order to undergo laser gum surgery. Dr. Scott Kissel’s practice is conveniently located in the heart of Manhattan, so residents in the surrounding areas have easy access to a LANAP certified periodontist.
