Madison, MS (PRWEB) July 11, 2014
Dr. Roger B. Parkes and R. Clarke Stewart of Periodontal Associates of Jackson, P.A. make it easier than ever before for area residents to treat their persistent gum disease and help prevent bone loss by offering the LANAP® protocol, the first laser gum surgery cleared for patient use by the FDA. Patients searching for a periodontist near Madison, MS who may be concerned about traditional scalpel-based periodontal surgery can now have a procedure that restores their gum and bone health without any cuts or stitches and with minimal discomfort.
The LANAP® treatment utilizes the PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser which is able to differentiate between diseased and healthy gum tissue. It then essentially vaporizes the infected cells while leaving all others unaffected. This dramatically reduces the impact and pain during any recovery that patients experience. It also retains the maximum amount of healthy gum tissue and stimulates bone regrowth, which are critical to preventing the loss of teeth. Without enough gum and bone to hold them in place, teeth are at risk of extraction. When teeth are missing, the adjacent bone in the jaw no longer receives the stimulation that the natural tooth roots provide. This leads to the loss of bone density. People who experience this tend to develop a sunken look in their jaw and chin areas. They may also have difficulty speaking clearly and eating at times.
Understanding that effective gum disease treatment is an important means of preventing other oral health and cosmetic issues makes the advancement of laser gum surgery even more important. For many patients, the thought of having a periodontist near Madison, MS literally cut away some of their gum tissue is extremely daunting. The LANAP® treatment takes away those fears and offers a faster, minimally invasive and more comfortable means to restore gum health. In the process, the LANAP® procedure protects people from losing their bone density and jaw shape over time.
Patients who need a periodontist near Madison, MS to help them with gum disease or other gum related concerns should contact Periodontal Associates of Jackson, P.A. to schedule a consultation with Dr. Parkes and Dr. Stewart. They are proud to be among some of the first dental professionals in the nation to offer the LANAP® procedure, the first ever FDA cleared laser gum surgery option.
