Chester, NJ (PRWEB) March 29, 2014
Dr. Thomas A. Bissell, a Chester, NJ periodontist, recently announced the debut of a new website containing extensive oral health education content for patients at his practice. The new site was strategically designed to serve as a valuable resource for patients so that they can find accurate answers to their oral health questions.
Dr. Bissell belongs to a select group of dental professionals who are certified to perform laser gum surgery, a minimally invasive alternative to traditional gum surgery. Only one percent of dental professionals in the country currently offer the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®), which uses sophisticated laser technology to eliminate periodontal infection. (LANAP®). Prior to LANAP®, traditional surgery was typically the only option available to patients whose gum disease had progressed into the moderate or advanced stages. Restoring oral functioning required doctors to cut into the gums, remove the bacteria, then suture the tissue back together.
Because of the pain and recovery time associated with traditional gum surgery, many people postpone seeking the care they need. If left untreated, gum disease eventually results in tooth and bone loss. Significant bone loss can even render a patient ineligible for tooth replacement solutions like dental implants.
