Rancho Cordova, CA (PRWEB) January 16, 2015
Jonathan Szymanowski, DMD, MMSc, and C. Thaddeus Szymanowski, DDS are pleased to announce the extension of their Sacramento dental practice to accept new patients from Rancho Cordova, CA. They offer the latest in dental technology, including the LANAP® protocol, an FDA-cleared laser gum disease treatment that reduces the pain and trauma of conventional oral surgery.
Bacteria combines with food acid to form a sticky paste called plaque around the base of teeth and below the gum line. If this is not removed with good oral hygiene habits, including brushing, flossing and professional dental cleanings, it hardens into calculus and causes irritation and inflammation to the sensitive supporting tissues around the roots of teeth. Redness and tenderness often signal the early stages of gum disease, also known as gingivitis. If the problem is not addressed at this point, infection creates deep pus pockets between the gums and teeth. Decay often causes teeth to loosen and fall out.
Most periodontists in Rancho Cordova, CA treat moderate to severe gum disease with a process called scaling and planing. The gums are cut and pulled away from the teeth so bacteria and infection can be removed. The periodontist then scrapes the calculus off the roots and replaces the gums with sutures. Patients often require weeks to heal, and sometimes, healthy tissue sustains so much damage in this procedure that the gums are unable to reattach to the roots of teeth. When recession is severe, individuals must frequently undergo an invasive gum grafting surgery to correct the problem.
Rancho Cordova, CA residents can now choose an alternative treatment that does not require incisions or sutures. Drs. Jonathan and Thaddeus Szymanowski are among the few dental professionals in the country certified to perform the LANAP® protocol. The PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser targets bacteria and infection below the gum line without damaging healthy tissue. An ultrasonic tool removes the calculus from tooth roots and the laser cauterizes the area and stimulates bone growth to help gums heal quickly and completely. Most patients report no discomfort within a matter of days after the procedure.
Drs. Szymanowski encourage Rancho Cordova, CA residents to start the New Year right by learning more about the revolutionary LANAP® protocol offered at their Sacramento, CA practice. More information about the PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser is available on their website.
