Detroit, MI (PRWEB) May 02, 2014
Dr. Roman Shlafer is one of the elite few doctors that are licensed to perform the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) to treat bleeding gums resulting from periodontal disease. Patients can now receive laser gum disease treatment in Detroit by calling Dr. Shlafer’s office and scheduling an initial consultation to find out if they are a candidate for this treatment.
LANAP® is a highly advanced laser treatment that is capable of precisely targeting the bacteria that cause gum disease. Patients who receive LANAP® instead of traditional gum disease surgery are able to recover from the procedure much more quickly and with low levels of pain due to the minimally invasive nature of the laser treatments. Laser treatment is a highly-celebrated breakthrough in gum disease treatment for Detroit area residents and can effectively reduce gum disease symptoms, including swollen, sensitive, and bleeding gums.
During LANAP®, a small and highly accurate laser is inserted between the teeth and gums where it sends out short laser pulses that precisely target diseased gum tissue while leaving healthy gum tissue untouched. LANAP® is FDA-cleared and can provide a minimally invasive treatment and less recovery time than traditional gum surgery that removes larger portions of gum tissue via scalpel. Periodontal disease patients who are not good candidates for traditional surgery may still be able to benefit from this highly effective laser gum surgery.
Patients who choose LANAP® can expect to receive a local anesthetic before an advanced laser is used to gently and efficiently remove diseased gum tissue from the mouth. This step is quick and causes minimal levels of pain for most patients. Because the PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser causes the blood to clot, sutures are not required in order to seal off the affected area following surgery. Without sutures, the healing process is sped up significantly. The entire procedure is quick, efficient, and minimally painful, and most patients are able to fully recover shortly after treatment.
Dental patients who are living with the various effects of gum disease, including swollen and bleeding gums, should call Dr. Shlafer’s office to learn more about the laser gum disease treatment options that he now offers to Detroit residents.
