Ridgeland, MS (PRWEB) June 13, 2014
Dr. Parkes and Dr. Stewart at the Periodontal Associates of Jackson, P.A. are specialists in periodontal dentistry now offering a quick and effective new gum disease treatment that has Jackson area patients enjoying better oral health in as little as one visit. Using the laser surgery that rapidly eliminates gum disease, called Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®), the doctors are able to treat serious periodontitis effectively without cutting or stitching gum tissue, as was common with traditional gum surgery.
LANAP® is a minimally invasive procedure that is FDA cleared to target the bacteria that cause gum disease, removing damaged gum tissue while leaving healthy gums intact. Combating further bone loss, which is a known risk of unchecked periodontitis, LANAP® gum disease treatment stimulates bone regeneration for stronger tooth support.
With the LANAP® gum disease treatment, patients in Ridgeland and the greater Jackson area report only slight discomfort and minimal bleeding. Most people are able to return to work the same day as the surgery. With good oral hygiene and regular dental care, patients in Ridgeland find that they can maintain strong and healthy gums following the procedure.
Gum disease is a rapidly developing epidemic in America, with millions of people unknowingly harboring destructive bacteria in their mouths. Recent studies show links between advanced gum disease and health risks like heart disease, stroke, and pancreatic cancer. The infection can travel from the mouth through the bloodstream to bodily organs where it can contribute to other illnesses and disease. The infection continues to progress in the mouth, meanwhile, where it destroys bone and tissue, eventually leading to irreversible damage. As gum disease progresses, the bacteria develop pockets along the gum line where they attack the bone and gum tissue, leading eventually to bone loss and even tooth loss if left untreated.
