Pomona, NY (PRWEB) January 23, 2014
Dr. Robert Tracey, a dental professional with General & Laser Assisted Dentistry, has joined the one percent of dental professionals providing Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure for gum disease treatment. With the beginning of the New Year, there is no better time to put dental health at the forefront of the resolutions with Dr. Robert Tracey. LANAP utilizes an FDA cleared laser for periodontal therapy: the Periolase MVP-7. The laser selectively targets and removes damaged tissue and the infection caused by moderate to severe periodontitis. Laser gum therapy in Pomona, NY gives patients the opportunity to start the New Year off right by taking care of their moderate to severe periodontitis.
One of the unique features of LANAP is the fact that no suturing or cutting is necessary. This is possible because of the technologically advanced laser. Also, there is very little discomfort and pain associated with LANAP, as well as only minimal bleeding. These features provide a great advantage over traditional gum surgery. Recovery time is much shorter, and there is little to no gum recession associated with LANAP, unlike its traditional counterpart.
After the procedure, patients can resume normal daily activities immediately, and the procedure itself only averages about two hours in length. This short time span is ideal for most patients because of how little it affects their daily life.
Gum disease has been linked to overall health, and has been shown to increase people’s risk for cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. Dr. Tracey, as well as the entire dental community, encourages patients to learn about their options for treatment and seek care as soon as possible. Laser gum disease treatment offers patients a way to get treatment without the invasiveness associated with traditional gum disease treatment. With the start of the New Year, gum health should be put at the top of every resolution list for overall health and happiness.
