New York, NY (PRWEB) June 06, 2014
Dr. Marc Levine now offers a minimally invasive gum disease treatment alternative that eradicates infection and enables more New York, NY periodontal patients to qualify for dental implants. The Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) uses sophisticated laser technology to remove the bacteria caused by gum disease and restore overall oral health.
Since periodontal disease can negatively impact the successful integration of dental implants, most periodontists like Dr. Levine recommend treating the infection prior to their placement. Although the presence of periodontal disease typically renders a patient ineligible for the implant procedure, the PerioLase MVP-7TM applied during LANAP® allows Dr. Levine to quickly and efficiently vaporize the infection without using a scalpel and disturbing the healthy gum tissue.
Ideally, more patients would seek gum disease treatment before tooth loss occurs; however, in the event that natural teeth cannot be saved, dental professionals now regard dental implants as the preferred tooth replacement solution. Due to their titanium composition, implants are capable of fusing with the jawbone through a process called osseointegration once they are surgically placed. Their unique ability to stimulate the surrounding bone and prevent deterioration in the same manner as natural teeth makes implants a superior choice for replacing missing teeth.
LANAP® offers an ideal solution for patients who need to eradicate their periodontal disease in order to qualify for dental implants. The procedure is minimally invasive and offers several advantages over traditional gum surgery, including less pain, bleeding, gum recession, and recovery time.
