Prattville, AL (PRWEB) May 08, 2014
Dr. Wayne Yarbrough announces the availability of laser gum surgery to patients in Prattville, AL. He is expanding his reach for this gum disease treatment that is considered both effective and minimally invasive. The treatment, known as the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure, or LANAP®, is available through Dr. Yarbrough’s practice, though the doctor must evaluate eligibility on a case-by-case basis. The further availability of this procedure should be helpful to a number of patients, as there have been several studies showing just how widespread the issue of gum disease is on a nationwide scale.
Despite this widespread prevalence, many individuals do not seek out gum disease treatment. Perhaps there are patients who are intimidated by procedures that require scalpels and sutures to be used, yet LANAP® does not use these at all. The procedure itself is considered minimally invasive and LANAP® does not cause any harm to bone or healthy tissue, making the procedure a relatively comfortable alternative.
Avoiding gum disease treatment and allowing gum disease to go unchecked can cause some major issues and complications. There have been a number of studies that have investigated the link between gum disease and serious health issues such as cardiovascular disease and certain types of cancer. Many studies are underway, and while some researchers disagree, there has been a significant faction believing there is a clear link between gum disease and these other serious health conditions. Seeking out laser gum surgery in Prattville, AL through Dr. Yarbrough’s practice may help patients avoid any further complications.
Individuals who are interested in this procedure due to the announcement of the availability of laser gum surgery to Prattville, AL should contact Dr. Yarbrough’s office to schedule an appointment for a consultation. While the procedure may be effective for most patients, the doctor must still determine the eligibility of each patient before they can undergo the procedure.
