Florence, AL (PRWEB) March 10, 2014
Dr. John M. Lane is a leading periodontist in the Florence area who offers the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) as a treatment option for patients who are experiencing gum disease symptoms such as bleeding when brushing. In honor of Gum Disease Awareness Month, Dr. Lane encourages all periodontal disease patients to seek LANAP® gum disease treatment in Florence to improve the health of their gums.
Millions of Americans experience gum disease symptoms each year, but most of them do not seek professional gum disease treatment in Florence. As a result, the disease is left to flourish and contribute to health complications that are not limited to the gums and mouth. Several different health complications have been linked to untreated gum disease, including diabetes, heart disease, low birth weight babies, and pancreatic cancer. Because gum disease has become such a prevalent problem, Gum Disease Awareness Month seeks to bring attention to the issue and encourage patients to seek treatment if they experience bleeding when brushing.
Some gum disease patients avoid treatment because they are uncomfortable with the traditional scalpel and suture method used to remove diseased gum tissue. Dr. Lane offers a convenient and minimally invasive alternative to traditional gum disease treatment called LANAP®. This treatment involves a highly accurate laser that is designed to target the bacteria that causes gum disease and selectively remove it from the gum tissue. Because of its pinpoint accuracy, patients who undergo LANAP® need not worry about healthy gum tissue being accidentally removed along with the diseased gum tissue. LANAP® is less invasive than scalpel surgery and results in less bleeding and a shorter, less painful recovery time.
Patients who experience bleeding when brushing and who want to improve the health of their gums during Gum Disease Awareness Month are urged to call Dr. Lane’s office and schedule an evaluation for gum disease treatment in Florence.
