Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) April 25, 2014
As the first dentist to offer laser gum disease treatment in Phoenix, AZ, Dr. Bruce Nelson has more than a decade of experience with the FDA cleared Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®). The minimally invasive gum surgery uses the targeted heat of a laser beam to eliminate bacteria that cause gum disease, as well as to remove damaged tissue while leaving healthy gums intact. For patients with loose teeth, the laser surgery helps by strengthening gum tissue, and the laser actually stimulates bone to regenerate. This can help mitigate the bone loss often suffered by patients with periodontal disease.
LANAP® usually allows the dentist to complete treatment in one or two visits, and most patients report minimal bleeding or discomfort from the surgery. Patients are turning to this gum disease treatment for relief from the risks and damage of advanced periodontal disease. It is a new type of gum surgery that is much less invasive than traditional procedures that use scalpels and sutures. LANAP® is a revolutionary new approach that targets the disease while leaving the healthy tissue unaffected.
LANAP® uses specific laser wavelengths to eliminate bacteria and diseased gum tissue while at the same time stimulating the bone to regenerate.
