Stuart, FL (PRWEB) January 20, 2014
Gum disease patients can now resolve to receive treatment this year with a gentler gum surgery in Stuart, FL. Leading the way with advanced new techniques in gum disease treatment, Robert Follweiler, DDS PA introduces a revolutionary laser gum surgery called the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP). The procedure is minimally invasive and FDA cleared to use a powerful and precise laser beam to target periodontal disease and remove infection. This process leaves healthy tissue unaffected.
Periodontal disease is an oral health condition that affects nearly half of adults over 30, according to the Centers for Disease Control. Many people do not realize the dangers to their oral health and fail to seek gum disease treatment. Linked to increased risks of heart disease, stroke and pneumonia, untreated periodontal infection can also contribute to complications with diabetes and pregnancy. In addition to these increased risks to other areas of the body, periodontal disease contributes to 75 percent of adult tooth loss.
With LANAP, patients get effective gum disease treatment, usually in a single office visit. With significantly less risks than "stitch and sew" operations that are used for traditional gum surgery, laser gum surgery allows most patients to return to activities the same day, with minimal bleeding and rapid healing time. The laser vaporizes the infection and cauterizes the area. It also helps to stimulate bone growth to support stronger teeth.
