Elyria, OH (PRWEB) December 10, 2014
Periodontist Dr. Eric Guirguis gives new hope for patients looking for gum disease treatment in Elyria and Westlake, OH, through the LANAP® protocol. The LANAP® protocol is an advanced laser gum surgery that improves oral health without the pain and down time experienced with traditional methods. The minimally invasive procedure helps to save teeth that might otherwise have to be extracted, and is a safe and effective way to treat periodontal infections so that the gums can heal.
The LANAP® protocol is an FDA cleared laser gum surgery for treating gum disease, or periodontal disease. When patients suffer from the moderate to advanced stages of gum disease, they experience bleeding gums, gum recession, and bone loss, and are threatened with tooth loss. Dr. Guirguis performs the treatment by inserting a small probe into the pockets of infection that form between the gums and the roots of the teeth. The probe delivers a laser beam directly to the diseased tissue without requiring any cutting. The PerioLase® MVP-7™ is a specialty laser that differentiates between healthy tissue and diseased tissue. When Dr. Guirguis performs this gum disease treatment he is able to address the problem without hurting or killing healthy cells in the area. This leads to faster healing and less inflammation.
While the LANAP® protocol is advanced care, it is well established as a safe and proven dental procedure. Without treatment, gum disease will continue to progress. Eventually, the bone around the teeth can deteriorate so far that patients may need to have teeth extracted. Intervention using laser gum surgery initiates healing because Dr. Guirguis removes problematic bacteria and infected tissue while stimulating healthy cells to grow. Over time, the pockets decrease in depth and the gums reattach to the affected teeth. As with most areas of healthcare, it is best to catch the problem as early as possible. However, patients with advanced disease can still benefit from the LANAP® protocol.
