Jackson, MS (PRWEB) April 26, 2014
The revolutionary laser gum surgery that Pearl, MS patients receive at the Periodontal Associates of Jackson is ideal for patients who want to avoid scalpels and stitches. Dr. Roger B. Parkes and his associate Dr. R. Clarke Stewart use the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure, or LANAP®, to provide new hope to patients suffering from periodontal disease and gum recession. The guided heat of the laser beam aimed along the gums can target the diseased tissue and eliminate the bacteria, leaving healthy gum tissue in place.
Gum recession can result from causes including:
- Lack of dental hygiene such as regular flossing, brushing, and dental visits;
- Disease, including as a complication of diabetes;
- Teeth grinding or poor occlusion that causes unnatural wear to the teeth;
- Smoking or poor diet;
- Brushing with the wrong kind of brush or too aggressive strokes.
Whatever the cause, recession can develop further if it is left untreated. As gum tissue recedes, they can leave exposed areas of the sensitive roots and become vulnerable to damage as they are exposed.
For those with moderate to severe recession as a result of periodontal disease or other causes, the laser gum surgery Pearl, MS patients have benefitted from is minimally invasive and can often be completed in just one office visit. Unlike traditional surgery that cuts into the gum tissue with a scalpel to remove infected areas, then stitches the remaining tissue together, LANAP® relies exclusively on computer guided laser beams to target the infection and incinerate it, leaving healthy gum tissue intact.
