Hialeah, FL (PRWEB) April 07, 2015
Patients who are currently dealing with discomfort caused by gum disease in Hialeah, FL now have the option of receiving the LANAP® protocol from the periodontal practice of Drs. Scott and Bradley Ross. This advanced laser gum surgery technique is revolutionizing the way that gum disease symptoms are treated.
Drs. Scott and Bradley Ross are excited to now offer a minimally invasive laser gum surgery treatment option for patients with gum disease in Hialeah, FL. When people develop gum disease and do not seek prompt treatment, they are often susceptible to loose teeth and receding gums. Over time, loose teeth can fall out and cause the patient to either deal with empty and unattractive spaces or receive a tooth replacement procedure. Popular tooth replacement options include implants, bridges and dentures. Each of these options can be expensive and in some cases uncomfortable.
Gum disease patients who want to keep their natural teeth and avoid the cost and discomfort associated with tooth replacement procedures are encouraged to find out more about the LANAP® protocol. This quick and effective laser treatment may save teeth that would otherwise be lost due to advanced stages of gum disease. During the procedure, a specialized laser tool is inserted into the pockets between the teeth and gums. Pulses of laser light are emitted from the tool to remove inflamed gum tissue without harming healthy tissue.
Once diseased gum tissue is removed, another small tool is then inserted into the pockets. This tool is designed to break up hard mineral calcium deposits on the teeth with the use of sound waves. Water is used to flush away debris that is removed from the tooth surface during this process. The laser is then used once again to seal the area and prevent the germs and toxins from entering the treated gums and causing infection. It also serves the important function of stimulating blood clot formation, which prevents excessive bleeding after the procedure.
Patients with gum disease in Hialeah, FL now have a minimally invasive treatment option available to them. The LANAP® protocol is a highly effective laser gum surgery treatment option that can now be received by scheduling an appointment with Drs. Scott and Bradley Ross.
