Williamsburg, VA (PRWEB) June 28, 2013
Dr. Michael Schroer of Williamsburg Periodontics now makes dental implants possible even for patients with advanced periodontal disease. Dr. Schroer recommends that gum or periodontal disease be treated before a patient receives implants. Gum disease treatment can now be done with the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure. LANAP is an FDA cleared procedure that can treat periodontal disease and help regenerate bone growth. Now, patients can have their gum disease treated, increasing their success for dental implants.
Dr. Schroer prides himself in offering advanced treatment options to his patients in Williamsburg. Dental implants are the preferred choice for tooth replacement, because they are a much better, long-term solution for replacing missing teeth. In the past, dentures or bridges were a common choice to replace lost teeth. However, dental implants provide a much greater chance of success and an overall healthier mouth. Dental implants are good for a single missing tooth as well as multiple missing teeth. They also provide more stability, as they mimic the actual root of the tooth and preserve bone density.
For remaining teeth that are at risk of being lost due to gum disease, Dr. Schroer can help save many with this laser gum disease treatment. LANAP has been scientifically proven to regenerate bone growth around the teeth. This helps save teeth that might have otherwise had to be removed, reducing the amount of dental implants a patient might need.
Using LANAP in order to prepare a patient’s mouth for implants can be very effective in treating periodontal disease. This, in turn, can provide a person with a lasting solution to lost teeth and gum disease. For lasting results, patients should still care for their dental implants and gums with daily brushing and flossing to prevent the disease from returning.
