Orlando, FL (PRWEB) October 15, 2014
Patients suffering from gum disease can turn to Drs. Richard Chace, Jr., Rodney Horvat, and Scott G. Cohen, as the doctors are honoring Dental Hygiene Month in October by educating patients on the benefits of the LANAP® protocol, a minimally invasive treatment option. The doctors also recognize the fact that periodontal disease is a widespread issue across the United States, and the availability of laser gum surgery in Orlando, FL is of particular importance given the prevalence of this disease and the potential health issues that may arise as a result.
The presence of periodontal disease is quite common, as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) indicate that nearly half of the adult population in the United States suffers from some form of the disease. It is often the case that this issue goes untreated, a fact that is cause for concern when one considers that untreated gum disease has been linked in recent studies to both cardiovascular disease and certain types of cancer. Through the availability of an Orlando, FL laser gum surgery, sufferers of periodontal disease can take corrective action.
The LANAP® procedure is desirable among patients with periodontal disease because the doctors do not have to utilize a scalpel or sutures throughout the course of this procedure. Instead, the doctors are able to take advantage of the PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser, which targets only the harmful bacteria that is within the pockets of the gums. The procedure is considered minimally invasive, and the healthy gum tissue is not damaged during the course of the procedure. The relative comfort of the procedure is beneficial, as it may make treatment more accessible to patients who would otherwise be hesitant to undergo a more traditional procedure.
Gum disease sufferers who wish to learn more about laser gum surgery in Orlando, FL known as the LANAP® protocol can contact the office of Drs. Chace, Horvat, and Cohen at their earliest convenience in order to schedule an appointment for a consultation. It may be necessary for the doctors to discuss the many available treatment options in order to determine the most appropriate course of action based on the individual needs of each patient.
