Concord, NH (PRWEB) March 30, 2014
Concord, NH periodontist Dr. Austin Wang and Dr. Tracey Vest now offer the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®), a minimally invasive gum disease treatment alternative to traditional gum surgery. LANAP® employs advanced laser technology to remove periodontal infection without aggravating the healthy gum tissue or surrounding teeth.
Periodontitis is on the rise in the United States and the Center for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that one out of every two American adults over age 30 has some form of gum disease. Given mounting research demonstrating a link between periodontal disease and systemic diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and pancreatic cancer, oral health education is more important than ever. Despite the danger, many people delay seeking the care they need because of the inherent invasiveness of traditional gum disease treatment procedures. Conventional gum surgery requires doctors to cut into the gums to remove the infection and then suture the tissue back together.
By using the PerioLase MVP-7 to remove the infection, Dr. Wang and Dr. Vest can restore optimal oral functioning and help lower his patients’ risk of other health complications without painful cutting or stitching. LANAP® offers several other advantages over traditional gum surgery, including faster healing time and no gum recession. Additionally, the laser applied in the LANAP® gum disease treatment stimulates the bone surrounding the teeth, promoting bone regeneration. As a result, Dr. Wang and Dr. Vest are often able to save teeth that would have otherwise been removed to prevent the spread of infection.
