Cary, NC (PRWEB) January 13, 2015
Cary, NC residents with gum disease no longer have to fear gum disease treatment thanks to an FDA-cleared laser gum treatment available at the office of Craig Dorion, DDS in Apex. The LANAP® protocol uses a highly focused beam of light that targets bacteria and cleans away infection without damaging healthy tissue. Laser-assisted surgery reduces the trauma and pain associated with conventional gum surgery and speeds recovery.
Bacteria are the primary factor in the development of gum disease. They create a sticky substance called plaque around the base of teeth. If plaque is not removed with regular brushing, flossing and professional dental cleanings, it extends below the gum line, hardens into calculus and irritates sensitive tissues. Redness, tenderness and bleeding typically indicate the first stages of gum disease, and if Cary, NC individuals do not seek treatment quickly, more serious symptoms develop. Bacterial pockets pull the gums away from the roots of teeth, and bacteria can enter the bloodstream, which may lead to other health issues.
In traditional gum disease surgery the gums are cut with a blade and peeled back from the roots of teeth. Infection is cleaned from the gums and the calculus is scraped from the roots of teeth. The gums are then sutured back into place and often do not fully reattach as they heal. The resulting recession may require a grafting surgery to restore the gum line.
The LANAP® protocol is the most advanced dental technology available for the treatment of gum disease. Dr. Dorion is among the one percent of dental professionals certified to offer this unique laser gum treatment. The tip of the PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser is inserted below the gum line, where it eradicates bacteria and infection without harming healthy tissue. He uses an ultrasonic tool to remove the calculus, and then cauterizes the area with the laser stimulating tissue reattachment. This procedure reduces the pain, trauma and recovery time of gum disease treatment.
