Pomona, NY (PRWEB) March 21, 2013
It is estimated that 75 percent of U.S. adults suffer from moderate to severe periodontal disease, and Dr. Robert Tracey is bringing an advanced gum disease treatment option to his Pomona, NY patients with the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure.
The LANAP laser gum surgery does not use a scalpel or stitches like traditional surgery. Instead, the laser treatment uses wavelengths of light that can tell the difference between diseased and healthy tissue. The laser light then zaps away the periodontal disease, leaving the healthy tissue unharmed. LANAP causes very little recession and very little discomfort to the patient. This advanced gum disease treatment is the first FDA cleared laser treatment for periodontal disease and allows Dr. Tracey to see predictable, long-term results.
Symptoms of periodontal disease include bad breath, bleeding when brushing or flossing, and even loose teeth that wiggle in the mouth. Despite the often-serious symptoms of periodontal disease, many people refuse to seek treatment because of the pain and discomfort associated with traditional gum surgery. However, the systemic effects associated with periodontal disease can be serious, including an increased risk for heart disease and stroke. Avoiding treatment is not a realistic solution.
