Wayne, NJ (PRWEB) October 20, 2014
In honor of Dental Hygiene Month this October, Dr. Laurence Breiterman is helping patients fight periodontal disease with the LANAP® laser protocol, a minimally invasive gum disease treatment. This procedure provides reliable results and can reduce the risk of various health issues associated with periodontal disease. Though many patients expect an unpleasant experience when they visit a dentist in Wayne, NJ for gum surgery, the LANAP® protocol offers a minimal risk of adverse side effects.
During the procedure, Dr. Breiterman uses the PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser to treat periodontal disease while minimizing damage to healthy tissue. By leaving healthy gums intact, Dr. Breiterman reduces the risk of gum recession resulting from treatment. Patients also enjoy a shorter healing time with little discomfort or bleeding. Besides these benefits, the LANAP® protocol offers a few long term health advantages. The risk of infection is low, since the PerioLase® MVP-7™ stimulates the formation of a blood clot, which seals off the gum tissue and protects against infection. The laser also promotes regeneration in the bone that anchors the teeth, which lowers the likelihood that Dr. Breiterman’s patients will lose any teeth to gum disease.
The risk of tooth loss is just one reason that people with periodontal disease should seek treatment from a dentist in Wayne, NJ as soon as they can. The condition can cause numerous irreversible changes, including gum recession and damage to the alveolar bone. If teeth are eventually lost, further bone density loss will occur as well. Additionally, people with untreated periodontal disease may face a greater risk of other health problems; research has shown that conditions such as stroke and heart disease are more prevalent among people with gum disease. The relationship between these conditions is still being studied, and while causation has not been established, some evidence does exist to support these conclusions. Dr. Breiterman encourages patients to take the precaution of protecting their periodontal health to eliminate other unnecessary health risks.
Periodontal disease is often revealed through changes in periodontal health. Gum inflammation, recession, and bleeding are common signs of the condition. People who notice these symptoms should visit this leading dentist in Wayne, NJ promptly to determine whether periodontal disease treatment is needed. Patients can schedule an appointment with Dr. Breiterman by calling his office or by requesting an appointment through his website.
