Durham, NC (PRWEB) April 05, 2013
Dr. Jason Cataldo now utilizes the FDA cleared PerioLase MVP-7 laser to perform laser gum surgery on patients suffering from advanced gum disease. For many people, this procedure is easier to consider than traditional surgery, which requires the gums getting cut away with a scalpel or removing the affected teeth and replacing them with bridges, implants or dentures. The Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure is designed to reduce pain and bleeding for patients while increasing their comfort level.
Millions of adults throughout the country suffer from gum disease. Some symptoms of gum disease are red, swollen or even bleeding gums and gum recession. Beginning stages don’t always have obvious symptoms and often times go unnoticed until they reach advanced levels of disease. Left untreated it can lead to tooth loss.
As bad as these problems are, it is important to understand that there are also links between gum or periodontal disease and several serious health issues including heart problems, respiratory illnesses, diabetes and some types of cancer.
The LANAP laser gum surgery uses a laser that only targets infected tissue and the bacteria that causes the problem. Because it does not remove healthy tissue or harm teeth, it generally leads to less recession and improved results.
