Tulsa, OK (PRWEB) March 11, 2013
Dr. Randy McCormick now offers patients the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure, a new laser treatment that treats periodontal disease. Despite the many studies that have reported a link between gum disease and other serious health issues, many people remain reluctant to see a laser dentist to have their gum disease treated.
As the first FDA cleared laser gum disease treatment, LANAP is a highly effective method for treating moderate to severe periodontal disease. LANAP does not require the use of a scalpel or sutures; it is a minimally invasive procedure that causes very little recession of the gums and very little discomfort for the patient. LANAP works by operating at a wavelength that can differentiate between diseased tissue and healthy tissue, and it essentially eliminates the bacteria responsible for periodontal disease. Because the laser is so selective, Dr. McCormick has seen predictable, long-term results.
Standard periodontal disease treatments require the doctor to cut the gums in order to clean and treat the area. Some patients report moderate to severe pain following traditional gum surgery and require one or more days off of work in order to recover. Since the gums are cut, traditional surgery may result in the gum line being reduced. Reducing the gum line may cause aesthetic problems for the patient and can increase their sensitivity to hot or cold foods and drinks.
