Jackson, MS (PRWEB) August 08, 2013
Dr. Roger B. Parkes offers the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP), which is the only FDA cleared laser gum disease treatment. Jackson patients who will receive dental implants may want to inquire about using LANAP to prepare their mouths for treatment. Gum disease is considered the primary cause of tooth loss in American adults; so many times gum disease and dental implants go hand in hand. Dr. Parkes recommends that any patient who is suffering from the symptoms of gum disease, such as redness, sensitivity, bleeding or inflammation of the gum, or tooth loss, seek treatment prior to receiving dental implants.
Tooth loss as a result of gum disease can be prevented in many cases by timely gum disease treatment. Jackson patients may now receive gentler, less invasive gum surgery. Dr. Parkes offers LANAP to eligible patients. LANAP uses a high-tech laser to remove damaged tissue. The laser is so precise that it leaves healthy tissue unharmed. LANAP also stimulates bone to regenerate, leading to healthier bone density. This can prevent tooth loss for patients who were at risk of losing them.
In cases where teeth have already been lost or cannot be saved, LANAP can be used to prepare the mouth to receive dental implants. Implants are widely considered to be the best and most permanent modern tooth replacement option available. First, a titanium base is implanted in the jaw, atop which an abutment is placed. A natural-looking crown is situated on top of the abutment.
In order for implant surgery to be most effective, it is important to rid the mouth of diseased tissue. In many cases, this can be efficiently done through only a few sessions of LANAP.
