Wayne, NJ Laser Gum Surgery from Dr. Laurence Breiterman Can Help Prevent Tooth and Bone Loss with Bone Stimulation During Gum Disease Treatment

Share Article

Patients suffering from gum disease should seek laser gum surgery from Dr. Laurence Breiterman, a dentist in Wayne NJ who is among a small percent of dental professionals to offer this new treatment. This surgery can help stimulate bone growth, which can save teeth that might have been lost.

Dr. Laurence Breiterman of Advanced Dental Techniques has started treating patients with the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP), a laser gum surgery that removes gum disease and prevents loss of teeth and bone density. For patients who have already suffered from bone and tooth loss, Dr. Breiterman is the dentist in Wayne, NJ who can offer the right treatments to mitigate future problems.

LANAP uses the FDA-cleared Periolase MVP-7 laser to remove gum disease. While traditional periodontal surgery involves cutting out gum tissue and folding and stitching the gums afterward, LANAP does not involve any cutting, which minimizes pain, bleeding, and the recovery period. The Periolase MVP-7 exclusively targets gum disease, leaving healthy gum tissue and teeth unharmed. This is advantageous for patients who are close to losing teeth and for patients who have already lost teeth. Reduced gum tissue can leave teeth exposed and less protected from disease in the future. Patients who have lost teeth need sufficient gum present for dental implants to be a feasible tooth replacement option. Protecting gum tissue with LANAP makes patients more likely to keep their teeth healthy or be eligible for implants in the future.

For teeth that are at risk of being lost, LANAP can be a more effective treatment than traditional periodontal surgery. The Periolase MVP-7 actually stimulates the bone during the treatment. This helps stimulate regrowth, which can be crucial if bone loss is causing detachment from the tooth. The stimulation from the laser can be very helpful in promoting healthy growth and maintenance in the tooth and bone.

Dr. Breiterman performs the procedure by measuring the gum pockets, removing bacteria with the laser, removing plaque by hand, and sterilizing the gum pocket by using the laser again. The laser gum surgery has no negative side effects and only takes a short amount of time, yet it can have lasting effects for patients.
