Weymouth, MA (PRWEB) May 17, 2014
Dr. Thomas Mone now offers the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) as an alternative to traditional gum disease surgery. Many patients in Weymouth, MA can opt for this laser gum surgery rather than going under the scalpel. Although some of the symptoms of gum disease are less noticeable, bleeding gums indicate that the problem needs to be addressed.
LANAP® utilizes an FDA cleared laser, called the PerioLase® MVP-7™, to selectively target and remove both diseased tissue and the accompanying bacterial cause. With traditional gum disease surgery, the gum tissue had to be cut and sutured, sacrificing some healthy tissue to remove all of the diseased tissue. This is not the case with LANAP®. The laser utilizes a special wavelength of light that selectively targets diseased tissue and bacteria, while leaving healthy tissue, teeth and bone unscathed. The laser also stimulates bone regeneration, helping to save the jaw bone and the teeth secured in it.
Recognizing the symptoms of gum disease can be tricky because it is a progressive disease that advances over time. Things that patients should look for include bleeding gums, loose teeth, gum recession, chronic halitosis and gum pain while brushing. If these symptoms are identified, it is possible that patients can make a full recovery if treatment is sought out in the early stages of the disease.
LANAP® is an ideal choice for many patients because they can usually return to their normal daily activities as soon as the procedure is over. LANAP® fits into even the busiest schedules, helping people achieve their healthiest, happiest smiles.
Laser gum surgery for Weymouth, MA residents is now available through Dr. Thomas Mone, and is a great alternative to traditional gum surgery. Dr. Mone believes in providing his patients with the highest quality of care possible and recommends LANAP® to those patients who are suffering with gum disease.
