Newington, CT (PRWEB) March 17, 2014
Dr. Theodore Adamidis now offers the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®), a minimally invasive laser gum treatment in Newington, CT. Dr. Adamidis belongs to a select group of dental professionals who have completed the training required to perform LANAP®; only one percent of dental professionals in the country currently offer the procedure.
One of the principal causes of tooth loss for Americans is gum disease, also called periodontal disease or periodontitis. Gum disease is triggered by the formation of bacteria and tarter under the gum line, which causes an inflammatory response. If allowed to progress into the moderate or advanced stages, the periodontal infection becomes increasingly more difficult to remove. Gum disease has been linked to serious systemic health issues, such as stroke, diabetes, and heart disease. Recent studies have demonstrated that a history of gum disease can increase a person’s risk of pancreatic cancer by up to 64 percent. Despite the increasing prevalence of periodontitis in the United States, many people avoid seeking gum disease treatment until the infection has seriously damaged their gum health and overall wellness because of the inherent invasiveness of traditional gum surgery.
With LANAP®, patients now have new options for what type of gum disease treatment they receive. Fortunately, the PerioLase®MVP-7™ used during LANAP® is capable of distinguishing between healthy and diseased gum tissue, allowing Dr. Adamidis to eliminate the infection without incisions or stitches. LANAP® also offers several benefits over traditional surgery, including no gum recession or recovery time. Because the laser stimulates the bone surrounding the teeth, LANAP® also promotes bone regeneration, oftentimes enabling dentists like Dr. Adamidis to save patients’ natural teeth.
Using patented laser technology to achieve superior results, LANAP® is transforming the way periodontists and dentists treat gum disease.
