Monroe, CT (PRWEB) July 24, 2013
For Immediate Release-- Dr. Richard Amato now offers a new type of gum surgery to Connecticut patients who are at risk of loss of teeth due to gum disease. This FDA-cleared gum disease treatment, the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure or LANAP, offers patients many short-term and long-term benefits.
Unlike traditional periodontal surgery, LANAP does not involve any removal of gum tissue or stitches. Dr. Amato performs the procedure using the Periolase MVP-7 laser, which selectively removes the diseased tissue and kills the germs that cause gum infections while leaving healthy tissue unharmed. Teeth that are severely damaged and likely to be lost may be saved with LANAP.
The Periolase MVP-7 not only eliminates the bacteria that cause gum disease but also stimulates the bone, which has positive effects. When people have lost teeth, the loss of stimulation in the bone can lead to bone resorption, in which the bone gradually shrinks away. Stimulation is key to preventing this bone loss. For teeth that are loose, laser bone stimulation can help encourage repair and regeneration, improving the likelihood of the tooth remaining intact.
LANAP restores the mouth to a healthy state, protects against the immediate loss of more teeth, and helps guard against heart attack, stroke and diabetes. Another advantage of LANAP is that it creates a healthy environment for any future treatment that may be needed, like dental implants. Patients do not need to stop taking their daily aspirin or other anticoagulant medication, which is an enormous advantage for patients with cardiovascular disease.
Patients who need some form of periodontal therapy in Connecticut to treat periodontal disease should consider the most advanced LANAP with Dr. Amato. The procedure is convenient and quick, and it can offer additional benefits to patients who want to save their teeth. Patients can call Dr. Amato's office or visit his website to find out more about how LANAP works and how it can help prevent tooth and bone loss.
