Newton Centre, MA (PRWEB) April 03, 2013
Dr. Stephen H. Grossman is now treating his Newton Centre patients with the FDA cleared Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure. With gum disease being linked to heart disease, stroke and low birth-weight or premature babies, among other serious health issues, Dr. Grossman stresses the importance of brushing and flossing daily and taking control of extreme periodontal disease cases with LANAP.
Although there are times when there are no warning signs of gum disease, those experiencing puffy or swollen gums, receding gums, or gums that bleed when brushed or flossed, should schedule a periodontal exam with Dr. Grossman to assess the level of their gum disease.
LANAP allows Dr. Grossman to bring the mouth to a complete state of health without the scalpels or sutures of traditional surgery. LANAP, the only FDA cleared laser gum surgery, works by utilizing frequencies of light that are able to tell the difference between diseased and healthy gum tissue. The laser light essentially zaps away the periodontal disease, leaving behind only the healthy gum tissue. The procedure is minimally invasive and most patients do not usually require any time off of work. LANAP causes minimal discomfort but allows Dr. Grossman to get big, predictable results.
Traditional periodontal disease treatments require the doctor to cut the gums in order to thoroughly clean the root of the tooth and remove the infection. However, such procedures can be invasive and many patients avoid it because they don’t know there is the laser gum surgery option.
