Wayne, NJ (PRWEB) February 02, 2013
Dr. Laurence C. Breiterman with Advanced Dental Techniques is advancing the future of dentistry by providing laser gum disease treatment to his patients. The Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure, or LANAP, is a procedure that utilizes a very selective and specialized laser to remove the bacteria that cause gum disease. The Periolase MVP 7 laser is the only laser that has been cleared by the FDA for periodontal therapy.
The basic procedure used by the dentist begins with a check of the patient's dental pockets, or the spaces between the teeth and the gums. This is the area where bacteria gather and attack the gums. The LANAP laser uses pulses of light to eradicate the bacteria and also removes tissue that has become diseased. Tartar that has collected on the teeth below the gum line is able to be removed and then the gums are stimulated to attach to the teeth again.
Because the PerioLase MVP-7 is so selective, the healthy tissue is not damaged during the gum disease treatment, leaving more of it in the mouth. In addition, the jawbone is stimulated to regenerate, which helps to strengthen it. The entire procedure done by the dentist is usually completed in a single dental appointment. Most people can return to work in a short period of time.
Unfortunately, many of the millions of Americans that suffer from gum disease do not seek treatment. Whether they do not realize the seriousness of the problem or they don't want to undergo the traditional gum disease treatment procedures, many people are in danger of suffering from additional health problems. Gum disease has been linked to pancreatic cancer, diabetes and even heart disease.
