Florence, AL (PRWEB) September 03, 2014
September is Self-Improvement Month, and Dr. John M. Lane raises awareness of this fact by reminding patients to take care of any of the dental issues they may be experiencing in a timely fashion. This periodontist in Madison and Florence, AL offers patients a wide variety of treatment options, including a procedure known as the LANAP® laser protocol. This minimally invasive treatment option is able to address the symptoms relating to periodontal disease, including bleeding gums.
As a leading periodontist for Madison and Florence, AL, Dr. Lane recognizes that gum disease is a widespread issue in the United States, a fact that is backed by recent statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). According to the CDC, over 47 percent of the adult population suffers from some form of gum disease. Furthermore, there have been a number of studies that indicate a link between gum disease and cardiovascular disease, along with several types of cancer. Despite the prevalence of gum disease and the risks that are associated with it, many people delay seeking treatment out of a hesitancy to undergo a procedure that may be uncomfortable or may result in an extended recovery time. Neither is true of LANAP® laser surgery, as the doctor is able to perform the procedure without the use of a scalpel or sutures.
The LANAP® protocol is a fairly simple procedure, as Dr. Lane is able to remove the harmful bacteria from the pockets of the gums through the use of the PerioLase® MVP-7™, a laser that allows him to save healthy gum tissue and promote bone regrowth. It is in this way that Dr. Lane can address the issue of bleeding gums along with any other symptoms that may arise as a result of gum disease.
To honor Self-Improvement Month, patients are advised to address any oral health concerns that may be present. Individuals who are seeking a periodontist in Madison and Florence, AL should contact Dr. Lane’s office at their earliest convenience. It may be necessary to schedule an appointment for a consultation, during which time the doctor will be able to discuss the many treatment options for bleeding gums caused by periodontal disease that may be available and how those particular treatment options may benefit the individual patient.
