Wallingford, CT (PRWEB) February 17, 2015
Dr. Randy J. Greenberg honors Gum Disease Awareness Month this February by teaching Wallingford, CT residents about the disease, and new treatment options available. Dr. Greenberg offers the LANAP® protocol, a laser gum surgery used to treat gum disease. The FDA cleared laser procedure is only offered in approximately one percent of dental offices across the nation, making Dr. Greenberg’s ability to perform it an important service to the community. Though a common problem, gum disease in Wallingford, CT and throughout the country is treatable with the right care.
The LANAP® protocol is a laser surgery that does not require a scalpel or sutures, as Dr. Greenberg does not have to make any cuts during the procedure. Gum disease is hard to reach without a laser because the infection grows in the spaces it creates between the gums and teeth. These spaces, called pockets, keep the gums from attaching properly and eventually allow the infection to eat away at the bone. When Dr. Greenberg performs the LANAP® protocol, he uses a thin probe that slides into the pockets, and he releases the laser pulses directly to the source of the disease. The pulses remove diseased tissue without harming the healthy bone and gums that surround it.
There are many in need of treatment for gum disease in Wallingford, CT, yet are unaware of it. While the disease is treatable even in advanced stages, it is much easier on patients to receive help as early as possible. Unfortunately, there are few obvious warning signs of the disease, leading many to think their dental health is good when they actually have active infections.
Dr. Greenberg suggests that anyone who is interested in learning more about the diagnosis and treatment of gum disease in Wallingford, CT either visit his website or call his office. He wants everyone in the community to enjoy good oral health, and one of the most important ways to achieve that goal is through regular dental exams.
