Sacramento, CA (PRWEB) September 15, 2014
Dr. Jonathan Szymanowski and Dr. Thaddeus Szymanowski now offer patients with gum disease the LANAP® protocol, a type of laser gum surgery, as a convenient and less-invasive alternative to traditional gum surgery. This advanced gum disease treatment can help patients protect their oral and general health, and the procedure poses a low risk of adverse side effects.
When Drs. Szymanowski perform the LANAP® procedure, they use the specialized PerioLase® MVP-7 laser to remove gum disease without harming healthy gum tissue. They preserve as much healthy gum tissue as possible, which benefits patients who have experienced gum recession due to periodontal disease. The doctors begin the gum disease treatment by measuring the depth of the patient's gum pockets. The laser is then used to destroy the bacteria in the pockets and remove diseased tissue. Next, an ultrasonic tool is used to clean away build-up below the gum line. Finally, the PerioLase® MVP-7 is used one more time to create a blood clot that seals off the treated gum pockets. This further reduces the risk of infection following the procedure.
People who delay visiting their periodontists for periodontal disease treatment in Sacramento, CA, may risk numerous health consequences. Gum disease can cause gum recession, tooth loss, and even bone density loss. Additionally, research has linked periodontal disease to numerous chronic health problems, including stroke and heart disease. Although the reasons for these relationships are still being studied, people with periodontal disease are encouraged to seek gum disease treatment early. The LANAP® protocol with Drs. Szymanowski is highly effective, so the procedure can significantly reduce the risk of any unnecessary health complications.
Many people fail to seek periodontal disease treatment because they are not familiar with warning signs of the condition. Dr. Jonathan Szymanowski and Dr. Thaddeus Szymanowski advise patients to be alert to pain, swelling, redness, or bleeding of the gums. Gum recession and increased tooth mobility can also be symptoms of gum disease. People who notice these changes are encouraged to call Drs. Szymanowski’s office to schedule a consultation or visit his website for more information.
