Pomona, NY (PRWEB) August 01, 2013
At General & Laser Assisted Dentistry, Dr. Robert Tracey is proud to be among a leading group of dentists that perform the new Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) to treat gum disease and enable successful placement of dental implants. The LANAP technique uses the PerioLase MVP-7 laser to eliminate infected tissue in the gums, but without any effect at all on any healthy tissue. Along with removing gum disease and preserving healthy tissue, the laser also stimulates the jaw bone and can assist in saving teeth that would have otherwise been lost.
Sometimes, teeth cannot be saved even with LANAP. Patients who need dental implants are recommended to have gum disease removed from the mouth prior to placement. LANAP provides a healthy environment for implants while possibly reducing the amount of teeth that need replaced. The placement of an implant then provides the ongoing stimulation to the jaw bone that is required to maintain its health long term.
Patients with lost teeth have various options including bridges, dentures or dental implants. Implants are often regarded as the optimal choice due to their longevity as well as their natural appearance. You can learn more about how LANAP can help your gum health from your Pomona dentist.
