Middletown, NJ (PRWEB) June 09, 2014

Patients in Middletown can now look to Dr. Allan Ruda for the latest advances in gum disease treatment available today. The Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) uses the PerioLase® MVP-7™, cleared by the FDA for laser gum surgery. Dr. Ruda recommends this surgical periodontal treatment when the disease has reached moderate to severe levels because of its unique ability to target and eliminate the bacteria that cause the disease without harming healthy tissue.

With no cutting or stitching involved in the surgery, LANAP® typically causes patients less discomfort, minimal bleeding, and a quicker recovery than other surgical procedures with the same goals. Patients are often back to work the same day they receive the periodontal treatment. Gum recession is a common side effect of traditional gum surgery that is not commonly seen in LANAP® patients. This new gum disease treatment also differs from other traditional surgeries in the amount of time that patients must spend receiving the treatments. LANAP® is usually completed in as little as two hours, while other surgeries may take multiple visits that each last many hours.

Periodontal disease can cause bleeding gums, tooth loss, bone loss, and eventually a change in facial features. Despite these severe effects, patients are often so afraid of dental work that they forego seeking care. Many patients are not aware of the advances that dentists and scientists have made in the field and believe that traditional surgeries are still the only option. Patients who are worried about convenience or who have severe anxiety can greatly benefit from LANAP®.

While dental issues remain the most common reason for patients to seek treatment, periodontal disease has been linked to other serious illnesses throughout the body, such as stroke, diabetes, coronary artery disease, and respiratory illness. For this reason, individuals who suffer from the disease are urged to learn about periodontal treatment options and seek care as soon as possible. Middletown patients can contact Dr. Ruda’s office for more information on the latest gum disease treatment options, including LANAP®, and how it can help fight the damaging effects of gum disease.
