Spring Valley, NY (PRWEB) July 22, 2014
Dr. Jonathan Tiger is now expanding his practice area to include patients in the Spring Valley, NY area who can benefit from receiving a new laser periodontal treatment to combat their gum disease. The LANAP® protocol uses the PerioLase®MVP-7™, a laser that has been cleared for use by the FDA, to destroy the bacteria that cause periodontal disease. Due to advanced technology, the laser is able to clear away dead and infected gum tissue without impacting or harming the healthy, surrounding tissue. Dr. Tiger recommends the treatment for many of his patients who suffer from moderate to severe periodontal disease.
Traditional gum surgery involves cutting away infected tissue and stitching healthy tissue back in place. Patients are often fearful of this type of dental work, so they put off receiving treatment for their gum disease. Many are not aware of the advances in dental medicine and the new, less invasive procedures that have been developed to treat gum disease. While some patients may require traditional gum surgery, many are candidates for LANAP® treatment. A consultation with Dr. Tiger is the place to start if gum disease symptoms are present.
The LANAP® protocol is a less invasive treatment and does not require any cutting or suturing of the gums. Patients feel little to no pain during the procedure and little blood loss occurs. Those who receive the LANAP® treatment also report very little gum recession. Spring Valley, NY patients can be back to their regular schedules immediately following this periodontal treatment, which can usually be completed in a single two hour visit to Dr. Tiger’s office.
Gum disease can eventually cause severe swelling of the gums, tooth loss, bone loss, and even an alteration to facial structure along the jaw. Severe forms of the disease, if left untreated, have been linked to heart disease, stroke, low birth weight babies, and diabetes. Spring Valley, NY residents who have gum disease symptoms should seek out periodontal treatment immediately to prevent complications of the disease from escalating. Those who are interested can schedule an appointment with Dr. Tiger to find out if the LANAP® protocol is right for their specific needs.
