Richardson, TX (PRWEB) September 29, 2013
Goad Dental, led by Dr. Kerry M. Goad, is now offering patients with missing teeth and gum disease a laser gum surgery that treats disease and improves oral health for dental implants. Known as the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP), the laser treatment treats gum disease efficiently, and has shorter recovery times than traditional gum surgery, hastening the dental implant process.
LANAP not only effectively combats gum disease, but it also promotes the growth of bone, helping it to reattach to loose teeth and potentially save teeth that would otherwise be lost due to gum disease. If the laser gum surgery is not able to save these at-risk teeth, dental implants can be placed once the teeth and the infection are removed.
Dental implants are considered to be the ideal replacement for missing teeth, as they provide a secure stabilizer into the jaw bone, literally fusing with the bone itself. This not only allows the implant to remain solidly in place but it also prevents jaw misalignment, bone loss and other problems commonly associated with tooth loss. After enough years, people missing teeth can develop a sunken in look to their jaw as well as speech or alignment issues. Laser gum surgery can help patients become candidates for dental implants and prevent these and other problems down the road.
Patients with lost teeth who are interested in dental implants can call or visit Goad Dental to learn more and see if LANAP may be able to help them fill in the gaps in their smiles. Dr. Goad’s website can also be a valuable resource for patients at http://www.dallasgumsurgery.com.
