Pleasant View, UT (PRWEB) October 06, 2014
Individuals with bleeding gums in Pleasant View, UT now have an opportunity to celebrate Dental Hygiene Month by receiving a laser based procedure from Dr. Willard W. Maughan called the LANAP® protocol. This innovative protocol is capable of targeting inflamed gum tissue without causing harm to the healthy gum tissue in the area. Patients who receive this treatment option can expect to have a more comfortable and rapid recovery time than they would likely experience after a more invasive gum disease treatment procedure.
There are a number of factors that can contribute to the development of gum disease, including poor dental hygiene, genetic predisposition, smoking, certain medications, and even excessive stress. The symptoms of gum disease include bleeding gums, inflamed gums, tooth and gum sensitivity, and chronic halitosis. Individuals who frequently experience bleeding gums in Pleasant View, UT are encouraged to find out about the various treatment options available to them during Dental Hygiene Month, including the LANAP® protocol.
This highly effective laser based protocol differs from traditional gum disease treatment in a few key areas. Instead of cutting into the gums and manually removing diseased gum tissue with the help of a scalpel, periodontists utilize a highly advanced laser to locate infected gum tissue and remove it with targeted laser pulses. The procedure is very effective and can typically be completed in just one appointment, while traditional gum disease treatments are often stretched out over several different appointments.
Once the infected gum tissue is removed, the FDA cleared laser seals the area in order to facilitate more rapid healing and to prevent the treated area from becoming infected. Because there are no sutures involved, patients experience minimal discomfort and more rapid recoveries than they would experience after undergoing traditional scalpel and suture methods. There are also fewer complications associated with laser assisted gum disease treatment therapy.
Gum disease patients with bleeding gums in Pleasant View, UT are strongly encouraged to take advantage of Dental Hygiene Month by receiving the LANAP® protocol from Dr. Maughan. An appointment may be scheduled by calling his office and speaking with a friendly office representative.
