Gum Disease Treatment is Now Available Using Laser Gum Surgery in Whitestone, NY from Dr. Vito Clarizio

Whitestone, NY dentist Dr. Vito Clarizio now offers laser gum surgery as a minimally invasive alternative for removing gum disease.

Whitestone, NY (PRWEB) October 25, 2013

Laser gum surgery in Whitestone, NY is now an option for treating gum disease at Dr. Vito Clarizio’s laser dental practice. The Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) uses the Periolase MVP-7, the only FDA cleared laser for periodontal therapy, to selectively target and remove the infection caused by moderate to severe periodontitis.

Because LANAP eradicates periodontal infection without cutting or suturing, there is little to no pain or discomfort and minimal bleeding. While traditional gum surgery may result in some level of gum recession, laser gum surgery usually does not lower the gum line at all. Patients can resume their daily activities immediately following the procedure, which averages about two hours in length. Most patients require one or two visits to complete the treatment.

Given the mounting evidence linking gum disease to overall healthy including diabetes, and heart disease, the dental community urges patients to learn about their treatment options and seek care as soon as possible. Gum disease has reached epidemic levels in the United States, but a significant number of people postpone treatment because of the invasiveness of traditional surgery. In addition to the procedure’s proven effectiveness, laser gum surgery also offers patients a more convenient and comfortable experience, making it an ideal option for individuals with dental anxiety or busy schedules.
