Elizabethtown, KY (PRWEB) September 16, 2014
Dr. Robert Franklin of Elizabethtown Periodontics announces that he is part of the one percent of dental professionals in the United States who now offer laser gum surgery. This FDA cleared procedure, named the LANAP® protocol, is a safe and effective way to treat moderate to advanced gum disease without the use of incisions or sutures. Dr. Franklin keeps himself on the cutting edge of dentistry to give local residents the opportunity to receive advanced gum disease treatment in Elizabethtown, KY.
The LANAP® protocol is a prime example of how dentistry is continually improving through technology. Dentists who remain at the forefront of technological and procedural improvements are able to offer a higher level of care than those who prefer to wait until change is unavoidable. To give patients with gum problems an alternative to invasive traditional surgery, Dr. Franklin performs minimally invasive laser gum surgery. The LANAP® protocol allows him to effectively treat gum disease and simultaneously stimulate the regrowth of bone in the jaw that has been lost to this disease. He does this without any need to cut into gums. Following treatment, patients experience only a small amount of discomfort and swelling. In fact, most patients find that the LANAP® protocol does not interfere with their typical activities immediately following their appointments. Considering the ease of treatment, patients no longer must fear going to the periodontist.
Despite the many advantages of the LANAP® protocol, many patients throughout the country do not yet have access to this procedure. Dr. Franklin recognizes that patients depend on him for their gum disease treatment in Elizabethtown, KY, along with other dental needs. He considers it his duty to participate in continuing education and to thoroughly research all advancements that may help his patients. Because of his dedication, he is among the first dentists to perform the LANAP® protocol and is pleased that he is in a position to help his patients by using laser gum surgery.
