Share Article

Patients in Oakland, NJ seeking a gum surgery alternative now have dramatically improved opportunities to prevent bone loss in the jaw thanks to Dr. Laurence C. Breiterman’s use of the LANAP® protocol, a laser based option that treats gum disease in less time and with less impact than traditional surgical methods. Dr. Breiterman and his team at Advanced Dental Techniques want area residents to know that they can protect the future of their teeth and bone easily and with minimal discomfort by treating gum infections with LANAP® laser treatment.

People in Oakland, NJ seeking a gum surgery alternative can take advantage of the LANAP® laser protocol, offered by Dr. Laurence C. Breiterman of Advanced Dental Techniques, that treats gum disease in a fraction of the time as traditional surgeries and with minimal discomfort. Maintaining healthy gums is one of the primary means by which patients can prevent ultimate tooth and bone loss, making the treatment of gum disease a highly important oral health matter.

Gum disease is characterized by several visible symptoms. These include gums that are red, swollen, or tender as well as gums that bleed during flossing or brushing. These early signs of periodontal infection are warning signs of potential problems, such as bone loss, that may result if proper treatment is not received. Many people have avoided seeking help for gum disease because of the pain involved with standard surgeries that require cutting and stitching. Dr. Breiterman is proud to be one of the area’s leading dental professionals to offer patients in Oakland, NJ a viable gum surgery alternative in the form of the LANAP® protocol. Utilizing the PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser, Dr. Breiterman can vaporize diseased gum cells without interrupting healthy cells to reduce the impact overall. There are no cuts, no stitches, and almost no bleeding or discomfort associated with this laser gum treatment. As an added bonus, LANAP® laser surgery helps to stimulate bone regrowth in treatment areas.

By maintaining proper gum and jaw bone health, the teeth retain the proper amount of support that they need to be stable and fully functional. Teeth supported by bone that has eroded too far due to severe infection can ultimately need to be extracted, leaving unsightly gaps and even impacting a patient’s ability to eat or speak properly depending upon the location of the lost teeth. Additionally, when teeth are missing, the related jaw bone area lacks critical stimulation naturally provided by the roots of the teeth. When this happens, the bone can begin to erode further. This bone loss can create additional cosmetic as well as functional problems.

Anyone who wishes to learn more about the options for receiving the LANAP® laser gum surgery alternative near Oakland, NJ is invited to contact Advanced Dental Techniques today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Laurence C. Breiterman. Additional information is also available on his website.
