Warren, PA (PRWEB) June 18, 2014
Patients who struggle with the challenges and symptoms of ongoing periodontal disease can now look to Dr. Paul L. Boger of Market Street Dental for a new form of gum disease treatment in Warren, PA that has little to no associated discomfort while delivering outstanding results. Named the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®), this method of laser gum surgery eliminates all cuts and stitches and instead leverages the benefits of laser to treat infection and restore both oral and overall health.
Red, swollen, and bleeding gums are just some of the common symptoms of periodontal disease. When gum disease is allowed to progress, tooth loss becomes possible as the oral bacteria responsible for the infection cause destruction of the bone and structures that support the teeth. If enough bone is lost, the teeth are at a high risk of becoming loose and even in need of extraction. Gum disease is also associated with an increased chance of developing other serious health conditions, ranging from pancreatic cancer to diabetes. This makes the need for effective gum disease treatment in Warren, PA a matter of great importance.
LANAP® laser gum surgery works by honing in on only the infected areas and then essentially vaporizing diseased tissue. Any gum tissue unaffected by disease is left untouched, keeping the maximum amount of tissue intact. No scalpel is used, no cuts are made, and no stitches are needed. All of this drastically reduces any pain or discomfort that a patient may experience, rendering the procedure far simpler than that of traditional surgery. The recovery period is also minimal and a large percentage of people can resume normal activities the following day instead of having to wait for pain and swelling to subside.
Dr. Boger and his staff at Market Street Dental are committed to the comfort and health of patients, and their use of LANAP® for gum disease treatment in Warren, PA is one way they demonstrate these efforts. Anyone interested in learning more about laser gum surgery and how it may help treat their periodontal infection is invited to contact Market Street Dental either online or in person by scheduling a consultation today.
