Winter Park, FL (PRWEB) December 05, 2013
As part of a continued commitment to provide Winter Park residents with the best options for a periodontist in Winter Park, FL, co-practitioners Dr. Rodney F. Horvat and Dr. Scott G. Cohen have launched a new educational website where patients can access a wealth of information about a variety of periodontal diseases, symptoms, treatments and more. Drs. Horvat and Cohen are proud to educate the public about oral cancer screenings, laser treatment for gum disease, All-on-4 implant-supported dentures and more.
Leading the way in the treatment of periodontal disease is a technique known as the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP), a state-of-the-art laser treatment for gum disease that offers exceptional results with minimal impact to patients. The entire procedure can be completed in far less time and allows patients to leave the office and go about their normal day immediately.
Another benefit of LANAP is the potential improved ability to receive dental implants. Implants should not be placed in unhealthy gums or even in healthy gums if not enough gum tissue is present to support the implant fully. Gum disease that is not properly treated can result in more gum loss and therefore reduce a person’s ability to successfully accept an implant. Patients in need of implants who have gum disease may be able to undergo laser treatment for gum disease as a way to prepare for the successful placement of an implant.
The new patient-friendly website hosted by Drs. Horvat and Cohen aims to reduce patient anxiety by increasing knowledge and understanding about various dental and periodontal terms, procedures and more. Patients are encouraged to visit the site at http://www.periodoctors.com or to contact the office at (407) 401-8982.
