Stuart, FL (PRWEB) December 17, 2013
Dr. Robert Follweiler now offers laser gum disease treatment in Stuart, FL with a procedure called the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP). This treatment utilizes an FDA cleared laser that removes gum disease while simultaneously stimulating bone growth. This treatment can save natural teeth, sometimes those that were previously thought of as hopeless. Laser gum surgery with LANAP can be performed in far less time and with far fewer complications to patients than any other type of gum surgery previously.
LANAP is used to remove diseased gum tissue and the bacteria that caused it without harming the surrounding healthy gum tissue and teeth. The laser used in LANAP, the Periolase MVP-7, uses a wavelength that does not affect healthy tissue, bone, or the root surface. This laser, however, is very effective on diseased gum tissue and the bacteria that cause it because it is absorbed by the dark pigmentation that accompanies gum disease. After Dr. Follweiler has removed the bacteria and diseased tissue, he has access to remove the tarter and calculus. To finish up the procedure, the laser is used to form a sort of natural barrier around the teeth to help prevent recontamination of the gum pockets.
This treatment is ideal to patients because it does not require any stitching or cutting, and has very little discomfort, bleeding, and gum recession associated with it. With traditional gum surgery, gum recession may result, but laser gum surgery does not lower the gum line at all.
Laser gum disease using LANAP offers predictable clinical outcome for those suffering from gum disease. Dr. Follweiler believes in offering the most advanced technology available to his patients. His goal is saving the natural teeth of his patients while helping them live without the pain and discomfort of gum disease. For those people looking for gum disease treatment in Stuart, FL, look no further than Dr. Robert Follweiler.
