Hackensack, NJ (PRWEB) April 20, 2014
Dr. Susan Goldfarb has expanded her dental services to offer a new form of gum disease treatment to patients living in Hackensack, NJ. The Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) is a minimally invasive procedure that protects healthy tissue and offers patients a short recovery time. For people who are reluctant to undergo conventional surgery, laser gum surgery offers all of the same benefits for both oral and general health.
Dr. Goldfarb performs the procedure by measuring a patient’s gum pocket depth and then removing periodontal disease with the PerioLase® MVP-7™, which is a laser that only targets diseased tissue and bacteria. Dr. Goldfarb finishes cleaning the teeth by using a cleaning tool to remove calculus buildup below the gum line. Then, she uses the PerioLase® MVP-7™ to stimulate blood clot formation and regeneration in the bone the teeth are anchored in. This protects against infection while strengthen the bone that supports the teeth.
Laser gum surgery offers a few unusual benefits for Dr. Goldfarb’s patients. No healthy tissue is sacrificed during the procedure, which is desirable for patients with receding gums or plans for future procedures such as dental implant placement. The procedure also offers patients in Hackensack, NJ the same benefits as traditional gum disease treatment. Periodontal disease can lead to loss of teeth and gum tissue; once teeth are lost, bone density will also decrease. People with periodontal disease may also have a higher risk of developing serious illnesses from pancreatic cancer to stroke. Prompt gum disease treatment can help mitigate all of these risks.
In its early stages, gum disease may be detected through symptoms including tenderness, swelling and bleeding. Dr. Goldfarb advises patients to be alert to changes in their oral health, from discomfort to shifts in tooth positioning, and schedule an appointment if they have any doubts. Patients can call Dr. Goldfarb’s office or visit her website to request an appointment or learn more about laser gum surgery and other options for gum disease treatment in Hackensack, NJ.
