Texas City, TX (PRWEB) October 28, 2013
Texas City residents who need dental implants to replace lost teeth but are suffering from gum disease can look to Dr. Stephen C. Hale for a new laser gum surgery that gently removes gum infection and promotes healing. The Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) uses laser technology to treat gum disease and prepare a healthy atmosphere for dental implants.
Not only does LANAP treat gum disease, but the laser stimulates jaw bone growth, causing the bone to refuse with the teeth roots. Teeth that are loose due to gum disease can be reattached and potentially saved. For teeth that cannot be saved, dental implants are the recommended option for replacement.
Jaw bone health is encouraged by the placement of dental implants, as the bone requires ongoing stimulation to remain healthy and prevent it from eroding over time. When teeth are missing, the bone in those areas does not receive this necessary stimulation. The titanium screw of a dental implant fuses with the bone to provide that action. If a lost tooth is not replaced or only replaced with a bridge or traditional dentures, the bone is at risk for resorption. When this happens, jaw misalignment and pain can result, as well as a misshapen appearance through the mouth or jaw area.
Periodontal health is an important component to overall dental and medical wellness. Dr. Hale takes pride in offering the latest in dental advances to provide patients with the best treatments and benefits possible.
