Fountain Valley, CA (PRWEB) July 23, 2013
Dr. Robert Mokbel now offers the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) gum disease treatment for patients suffering from gum disease and tooth loss. Many Americans are affected by some form of gum disease. Gum disease is a condition that starts with the growth of bacteria in the mouth. If not properly eradicated, toxins from bacteria can eventually destroy the tissues around the tooth. Ultimately this may lead to the loss of teeth.
Tooth loss can present cosmetic concerns and health risks. When a tooth falls out or is extracted, the root of the tooth is no longer stimulating bone growth in the jaw. Over time, this can lead to degeneration of the bone, which can change the shape of the face and contribute to wrinkling of the skin. Missing teeth can affect chewing, nutrition and comfort.
Dr. Mokbel offers a minimally invasive gum disease treatment with LANAP. This procedure uses a state-of-the-art laser to remove diseased tissue and bacteria from the gums while preserving healthy tissue for ultimate healing potential. The laser also stimulates regeneration of bone in the jaw, and this is the feature that helps Dr. Mokbel preserve his patients’ natural teeth.
