Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) April 03, 2014
A leading area dentist, Dr. Bruce Nelson can help residents to achieve their best oral health by the use of a new form of gum disease treatment in Scottsdale, AZ. Early treatment of infection in the gums is important to ensuring not only a person’s oral health but also overall health. The Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) delivers outstanding results with little discomfort while alleviating many common gum disease symptoms.
LANAP® is a laser gum disease treatment in Scottsdale, AZ that has been cleared by the U.S. FDA for use by dental professionals. The system leverages the PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser as it hones in on infected gum tissue, essentially vaporizing it while leaving all healthy tissue untouched. In traditional gum disease surgeries, a scalpel is used to cut out unhealthy tissue but this process also results in some healthy gum being lost as well. LANAP® provides the ability to retain the maximum amount of healthy gum tissue which can help to prevent additional problems from developing or the need for graft surgeries. The lack of cutting and stitching reduces the level of discomfort and the length of the recovery period that can be associated with gum surgery.
Periodontitis is detectable by common gum disease symptoms such as red, swollen or bleeding gums. Patients who experience any or all of these signs are urged to seek gum disease treatment in Scottsdale, AZ to not only remove any periodontal infection that may be present but to also protect against the risks of other health conditions. Gum disease has been linked to conditions such as stroke, diabetes, preterm birth, heart disease and low birth weight
Scottsdale residents who are concerned about their gum health and how it can affect their overall health are encouraged to schedule an appointment with Dr. Nelson today. Taking the time to address problems when they are small can go a long way toward preventing bigger ones.
