Palm Beach, FL (PRWEB) September 30, 2014
Dr. Herbert Salisbury, a dentist in Palm Beach and the South Florida area, has unveiled a new website designed to aid patients who have questions or concerns about oral health issues and procedures. Patients can visit the website to find accurate information on treatments that Dr. Salisbury offers, such as laser gum surgery and the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™). Patients can also educate themselves on a variety of oral health conditions, including gum recession, gum disease, tooth loss, and bone loss.
Periodontal disease is one of the primary health issues Dr. Salisbury focuses on as a dentist in Palm Beach. Gum disease causes damage to teeth, gum tissue, and the alveolar bone. If the condition is left untreated, it may result in gum recession, tooth loss, and bone density deterioration. Research has also linked periodontal disease to a number of significant systemic health problems, including stroke, pancreatic cancer, heart disease, and respiratory disease. Dr. Salisbury’s website offers a wide range of information on the health consequences of periodontal disease, symptoms patients should watch for, and potential means of treating the condition.
The LANAP® protocol, a type of laser gum surgery, is one highly effective gum disease treatment that Dr. Salisbury provides. During this procedure, Dr. Salisbury uses the Periolase® MVP-7, a special FDA-cleared laser, to remove only diseased gum tissue. The wavelength of the laser has no harmful effects on healthy tissue. The procedure does not require Dr. Salisbury to make any cuts or sutures, so patients experience minimal discomfort and bleeding. The Periolase® MVP-7 further lowers the risk of infections by stimulating the formation of a blood clot around the treated gum pockets. As a final benefit, the LANAP® protocol is the only FDA-cleared procedure shown to actively promote regeneration in the alveolar bone.
Anyone who notices symptoms of periodontal disease is encouraged to schedule a consultation about laser gum surgery in Palm Beach or the South Florida area with Dr. Salisbury. Current and new patients are also welcome to visit the new website at http://www.lasergumsurgerycenters.com to request an appointment or to learn more about periodontal disease and the benefits of the LANAP® procedure.
