Chester, NJ (PRWEB) June 20, 2014
Dr. Thomas Bissell now offers his patients the LANAP® protocol as a gum surgery alternative in Chester, NJ. LANAP® treatment is less invasive than traditional surgery, so patients typically experience less pain and a shorter recovery period. At the same time, LANAP® treatment offers all of the same health benefits as other gum disease treatments; it can help fix bleeding gums and prevent further damage from periodontal disease.
To perform the procedure, Dr. Bissell uses the PerioLase® MVP-7™, which destroys bacteria and removes diseased tissue. After he has removed the diseased tissue, Dr. Bissell uses an ultrasonic scaler to remove tartar deposited below the gum line. He completes the procedure by using the laser to stimulate the alveolar bone and cauterize the surgical site. The stimulation can help the bone regenerate and cauterizing seals the site lowering the risk of infection. Since no cuts are made and no sutures are placed, patients who opt for this gum surgery alternative in Chester, NJ, usually experience little pain or bleeding. They also may recover from the procedure more quickly.
LANAP® treatment offers numerous benefits for oral health; the procedure can fix bleeding gums, reduce discomfort, and help prevent tooth loss. However, many people do not realize the LANAP® protocol also offers general health benefits. As gum disease advances, harmful bacteria are able to enter the bloodstream through the gums. This may cause inflammation and raise the risk of various systemic health problems. Studies have shown people with gum disease are more likely to develop serious conditions such as heart disease and stroke. People who limit their exposure to the disease by seeking treatment early may mitigate these risks.
Early gum disease symptoms can include swelling, redness, bleeding, and pain. Patients who notice these issues should schedule a consultation with Dr. Bissell to discuss treatments to fix bleeding gums and other bothersome symptoms before the disease progresses. Patients can call Dr. Bissell's office directly to make an appointment, or they can visit his website to learn more about his new gum surgery alternative in Chester, NJ.
