Aberdeen, MS (PRWEB) July 18, 2014
Dr. John W. Starr, Jr., of the Golden Triangle Periodontal Center is now expanding his practice to include patients from Aberdeen, MS in need of laser gum disease treatment. Dr. Starr is a leading periodontist in the Columbus and Aberdeen, MS area and is one of the few dental professionals in the nation who have been trained to perform the LANAP® protocol on patients suffering from moderate to severe periodontal disease.
The LANAP® protocol is a revolutionary gum disease treatment that eliminates the need for traditional gum treatment for most patients. Patients with periodontal disease develop deep pockets in the gums around the teeth where bacteria thrive and infect the surrounding tissue. As an experienced periodontist in the Aberdeen, MS area, Dr. Starr performs the LANAP® treatment using the PerioLase® MVP-7™, the only laser that has been cleared by the FDA for the treatment of periodontal disease. The PerioLase® MVP-7™ targets and removes the offending bacteria and infected gum tissue without causing damage to the healthy surrounding tissue.
Traditional surgery usually involves cutting away the gums with a scalpel and closing the resulting wounds with sutures. When comparing the two methods, the minimally invasive LANAP® protocol results in minimal blood loss, less pain and very little gum recession. Patients are often able to resume their regular schedule immediately after the procedure is completed. Those who have received the LANAP® treatment also have more predictable bone regeneration and gum reattachment.
Any periodontist knows that the prevalence of gum disease throughout the U.S. and the world has reached epidemic status. However, very few people actually seek treatment for it due to their fear of the traditional procedures and the side effects they cause. The LANAP® protocol has reduced or eliminated almost every reason that people cite when putting off their gum disease treatment. Patients can now focus on what is best for their health when they receive the LANAP® protocol.
