Miami, FL (PRWEB) January 20, 2015
This New Year at South Florida Periodontics & Dental Implants, Dr. Scott Ross and Dr. Bradley Ross are proud to accept new patients who are in need of gum disease treatment before receiving permanent dental implants. Drs. Ross have found that gum disease patients who begin the implant placement process with laser treatment have better overall results. The doctors use the LANAP™ protocol laser surgery to eradicate infection and damaged tissue prior to setting the implants.
Traditional options to replace one or more missing teeth are often temporary, and can cause ongoing damage to the healthy parts of the mouth that remain. Bridges that are used to replace a few missing teeth typically need to be rebuilt every seven to ten years due to ordinary wear. Since the bridgework relies on neighboring healthy teeth for support, the dentist has to carve the good teeth down to create the bridge, causing potential damage.
Temporary dentures have limitations and drawbacks, as well. Because they place pressure on the gums, dentures can cause irritation and damage over time to the sensitive gum tissue. Worse, the jawbone beneath the gums needs direct stimulation from the roots of the teeth, and without the normal interaction between teeth and jaw, the bone dissolves in a natural process called reabsorption. The sunken and aged look that develops over time in the faces of those who wear dentures results from this process of bone loss.
The dental implants that the Miami, FL periodontists install can be a permanent resolution to missing teeth. Titanium implant posts bond with bone and provide the full stimulation that the bone needs.
For best results, many patients begin the implant procedure with a quick and effective gum disease treatment. The doctors are among the one percent of dental professionals who use LANAP™ surgery to eradicate gum disease. When the gum tissue is strong, healthy, and free of the infection that causes gum disease, the implants and replacement teeth built on them will have a greater chance for lasting success.
