Broken Arrow, OK (PRWEB) May 03, 2014
Dr. Randy McCormick is now offering laser gum surgery as a gum disease treatment for Broken Arrow, OK patients. The Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) utilizes an FDA cleared laser to treat gum disease and its many uncomfortable symptoms, like bleeding gums.
Gum disease, although common, can be responsible for very serious health complications and has been linked to pancreatic cancer, diabetes, low birth-weight babies, and heart disease. Until recently, the treatment for gum disease was an invasive surgical procedure that involved suturing and cutting. Now, thanks to LANAP®, patients have a less invasive and very beneficial option that doesn’t require any cutting or suturing.
LANAP® is a great alternative to traditional gum surgery because the laser used, the PerioLase® MVP-7™, utilizes a special wavelength of light that removes diseased tissue and bacteria while leaving healthy tissue, teeth, and bone unscathed. The PerioLase® MVP-7™ has been cleared by the FDA for periodontal treatment. One of the benefits of LANAP® is that the laser can also stimulate bone growth to support the teeth.
For many patients, LANAP® is an ideal option with less pain, less bleeding and quicker recovery than with traditional surgery. Patients can usually resume their normal daily routine immediately after the procedure, and for most patients, typically only one or two 2-hour visits are needed to complete the entire procedure.
Gum disease has reached epidemic proportions in the United States, and with its link to overall body health, Dr. McCormick urges patients experiencing the symptoms of gum disease to seek gum disease treatment in Broken Arrow, OK as soon as possible.
