New City, NY (PRWEB) June 27, 2014
Dr. Jonathan Tiger offers patients in New City, NY with gum disease the ability to prevent or minimize bone loss that can often accompany gum disease, by performing a new laser gum disease treatment. In the case of severe periodontal disease, gum recession or loss puts patients at risk for tooth loss if not enough healthy gum tissue is present to provide the necessary support for teeth. When teeth are extracted and not replaced with an implant, the associated area of jaw bone does not receive the stimulation it requires and then can degenerate over time. The Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) that Dr. Tiger uses combats this by more effectively eliminating gum disease and stimulating bone growth.
The PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser that is used during LANAP® treatment works by honing in on infected gum tissue to eradicate it. In the process, the laser actually stimulates the bone, encouraging proper and healthy reattachment to teeth, giving Dr. Tiger’s patients a better chance to prevent both the tooth and bone loss that too often result from gum disease. This is just one of the ways that the LANAP® protocol is quickly becoming recognized as a superior method of gum disease treatment among the nation’s most progressive dentists.
In instances where a tooth is lost, an implant can only be placed if the surrounding gum tissue is healthy. Periodontal disease is a common problem today and can impede a patient’s ability to receive implants, which are known to be the optimal solution to missing teeth because the implant, like the tooth itself, provides the ongoing stimulation to the jaw to prevent bone loss and misalignment. Infected gums are not able to provide proper support for either teeth or implants, making gum disease treatment a must before the placement of an implant for people with periodontal infection.
The LANAP® Protocol offered by Dr. Tiger works fast and requires no cutting or stitching, and it usually leaves patients without a painful or lengthy recovery time. The ability for dental implant patients to obtain healthy gums without another painful surgery can help make an overall healthy mouth more possible.
