Palm Beach, FL (PRWEB) November 03, 2014
Individuals suffering from gum disease in Palm Beach and South Florida are invited to turn to Dr. Herbert Salisbury, an experienced dentist. Dr. Salisbury now accepts patients throughout the South Florida area who are in need of gum surgery and other dental treatment, so many individuals can benefit from the wide treatment options available through his practice. One of the advanced treatment options Dr. Salisbury provides is the LANAP® protocol, a new, laser-assisted surgery that allows Dr. Salisbury to target and remove the bacteria that cause periodontal disease as well as the infected tissue located in the pockets of the gums, leaving healthy tissue unharmed. Dr. Salisbury can do this by using the PerioLase®MVP-7 for the LANAP® protocol, a specialized laser that has been cleared by the FDA for use in these applications.
Gum disease is a common condition that millions of Americans suffer with each year. Research has linked the disease to numerous health issues, including pancreatic cancer, diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. Some patients are unaware that they have the disease, but moderate to advanced stages result in major warning signs, including red, swollen gums, bleeding of the gums, tooth sensitivity, long-term bad breath, and loose or lost teeth. When the disease progresses to this level, treatment options usually include cutting away the diseased areas and grafting in healthy tissue from another area. These procedures are painful, time-consuming and have long recoveries.
Many patients often forgo seeking the advice of a dentist because of their fear of having to undergo painful treatments. With the LANAP® protocol, Dr. Salisbury can provide his Palm Beach and South Florida area patients with a gum surgery that results in little to no blood loss, less inflammation, and little pain or discomfort during and following the procedure. The procedure usually takes no more than one or two hour-long visits, depending on the severity and progression of the disease.
When gum disease reaches its final stages, it can cause severe swelling of the gums, bone loss, and may even result in a change in the shape of a person’s jaw. Palm Beach and South Florida area patients who may be in need of gum surgery are urged to contact Dr. Salisbury to set up an appointment to stop the progression of periodontal disease and regain their healthy smiles.
