Wilmington, DE (PRWEB) July 22, 2014
Periodontist in Wilmington, DE, Dr. Leo Kituskie, offers patients an innovative, technologically advanced option for effectively treating gum disease. Laser gum surgery is quickly becoming the preferred method of gum disease treatment for both patients and dental professionals alike because it is more precise and less invasive than traditional gum surgery.
Gum disease has reached an epidemic proportion in the United States and has been linked to many more health problems than just those found in the mouth. Recent studies have suggested that gum disease increases a person’s risk of experiencing heart disease, diabetes, low birth-weight babies, and pancreatic cancer. Gum disease is an ailment that should be taken seriously and treated as soon as possible. To avoid gum disease, Dr. Kituskie encourages patients to not put off dental hygiene and not neglect the daily hygiene regimen of brushing and flossing. If proper oral hygiene is not implemented, plaque begins to build up, and if left untreated long enough, will lead to advanced gum disease that requires drastic gum disease treatment.
Traditional gum disease treatment can be very invasive and requires cutting and suturing of the gum tissue. In many cases, healthy gum tissue must be sacrificed in order to ensure that all of the diseased tissue has been removed. This is not the case with laser gum surgery. The LANAP® protocol utilizes a specialized laser called the PerioLase®MVP-7™, an FDA cleared laser, to selectively target and remove the diseased gum tissue and its bacterial cause. This type of gum disease treatment is an ideal choice for many patients because it requires no cutting or suturing and has minimal post-operative bleeding, pain, and discomfort. Unlike traditional gum disease treatment where some healthy gum tissue is often sacrificed, the LANAP® protocol does not remove any healthy tissue and causes no gum recession.
The LANAP® protocol is a great option for patients looking for gum disease treatment because of the many unique advantages it offers. The LANAP® protocol allows patients to resume normal daily activities right after the procedure and can fit into even the busiest schedules because the average procedure length is only two hours.
