Williamsburg, VA (PRWEB) March 23, 2013
Dr. Michael Schroer joins only one percent of all dental professionals in the country providing the revolutionary Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure for gum disease treatment. This minimally invasive procedure allows for treatment of periodontal disease without removing healthy gum tissue. As an alternative to traditional gum surgery, the LANAP technique is less traumatic. Typically, patients benefit from less pain, less time in the dental chair, short recovery time and minimal gum recession. Patients suffering from periodontal disease now have an alternative treatment method.
Utilizing a laser to eliminate bacteria and sterilize the area where the bacteria resides, there is no need to cut away healthy gum tissue to get to the problem. LANAP is very selective and only attacks the bacteria and gum tissue that has become diseased. Bleeding is minimal and the laser stimulates clotting to help seal the gums to the roots.
Many people do not realize the serious health consequences of gum disease. It has been linked to problems such as low birth-weight babies, heart disease and pancreatic cancer. Patients requiring gum surgery no longer need to stress about the invasive surgery and extensive healing that comes with traditional methods of treatment. Dr. Schroer hopes that with LANAP many patients that have gone untreated will now come forward and get the laser gum surgery that they need.
Gum disease can be controlled through the LANAP procedure, and teeth slated for extraction may be retained because the laser technique actually helps stimulate bone regeneration. The laser procedure helps patients recover in a relatively short period of time. To learn more about Dr. Schroer and the LANAP procedure, visit http://www.williamsburgperiodontics.com.
