Fairfax, VA (PRWEB) October 13, 2014
Dr. J. Alexander Withers of Withers Periodontics and Implant Dentistry wants all residents to know that October is National Dental Hygiene Month, which makes now the ideal time to learn about laser gum disease treatment in Fairfax, VA and how it can help patients improve oral health and hygiene. The LANAP® protocol treats periodontal disease in less time and with minimal discomfort compared to traditional surgeries and addresses the issues of swollen, tender, and receding gums, helping people to restore their oral health and happy smiles.
At the heart of the LANAP® treatment is the PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser. This laser works with extreme precision to locate diseased cells and essentially vaporize them. Healthy cells are left undisturbed which eliminates much of the pain experienced with scalpel based gum disease surgeries. Because there are no cuts or stitches, the associated recovery time is extremely fast. In fact, most people leave the dental chair and resume their standard daily routines immediately. Bleeding and discomfort are minimal and easy to manage. The LANAP® protocol truly makes healthy gums a viable option for more patients than ever before.
Receding gums is one common side effect of periodontal disease. This can pose both cosmetic and health concerns to patients. Loss of gum tissue reduces the support provided to the teeth and increases the chance of tooth loss, which only further exacerbates an undesired cosmetic appearance. Proper daily hygiene is one way to prevent periodontal infection but cannot always prevent it in all cases. When patients need gum disease treatment in Fairfax, VA, they can now take advantage of this laser option to restore healthy gums with far less impact.
Gum disease treatment in Fairfax, VA can help people get back on the right track with oral hygiene and help make regular brushing and flossing more effective. People who would like to learn more about how to improve the hygiene and health of their mouths and fight receding gums are invited to contact Dr. J. Alexander Withers Periodontics and Implant Dentistry during this National Dental Hygiene Month for a consultation.
