Dr. Laurence Breiterman of Advanced Dental Techniques honors Diabetes Awareness Month by raising awareness of the link between symptoms of gum disease such as bleeding gums and diabetes. Patients seeking a gum disease treatment in Wayne, NJ and the surrounding area may be able to take advantage of the LANAP® laser protocol, which is a minimally invasive treatment option.

In recognition of Diabetes Awareness Month, Dr. Laurence Breiterman of Advanced Dental Techniques seeks to raise awareness of the link between diabetes and the symptoms of gum disease, including bleeding gums. Many recent studies have explored the link between diabetes and gum disease, finding that there is a clear relationship that may cause a number of very serious complications. Patients seeking a minimally invasive gum disease treatment in Wayne, NJ can explore many of the options available through Dr. Breiterman’s practice, including a minimally invasive option known as the LANAP® laser protocol.

Researchers have found that sufferers of diabetes are more likely to have to deal with gum disease than those who do not have diabetes. This is due to the fact that patients with diabetes tend to be more susceptible to infection, causing a number of complications that include bleeding gums and periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is not unique to those with diabetes, as over 47 percent of all American adults suffer from some form of the disease. Furthermore, it is not just diabetes that is linked to periodontal disease, as there have been other studies indicating a link to serious conditions such as heart disease and certain types of cancer.

Through the use of the LANAP® protocol, patients seeking gum disease treatment in Wayne, NJ and the surrounding area now have a minimally invasive treatment option at their disposal. This is due to the fact that LANAP® treatment does not require the use of a scalpel or sutures, instead utilizing the PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser, which targets harmful bacteria beneath the gum line while preserving healthy gum tissue. The treatment enables patients to experience greater comfort while also reducing the amount of time necessary for recovery.

Patients who are dealing with bleeding gums and are seeking a gum disease treatment in Wayne, NJ can contact Dr. Breiterman’s office to schedule an appointment for a consultation. During this time, the doctor can discuss the many treatment options that may be available, including the LANAP® laser protocol. While this treatment is indeed a minimally invasive and effective option, the doctor may still need to evaluate each individual patient’s eligibility for the procedure.
