Port Huron, MI (PRWEB) June 16, 2015
Patients with gum disease in Port Huron, MI are now welcome to receive the LANAP® protocol from Dr. Jason Souyias of Periodontic Associates of Port Huron. The LANAP® protocol is a minimally invasive laser gum surgery procedure that minimizes pain and bleeding associated with traditional gum disease treatment options. Dr. Souyias now offers the innovative treatment option to patients whether they have a referral or not.
Dr. Souyias is pleased to offer the LANAP® protocol to patients suffering from gum disease symptoms in Port Huron, MI. While traditional treatment methods for periodontal disease often require patients to undergo invasive gum surgery techniques, laser gum surgery treats gum disease symptoms without sutures or incisions. Gum disease is a very common condition that affects millions of Americans. The disease often develops as the result of inadequate dental hygiene and can cause a variety of unpleasant symptoms such as bad breath and excessive bleeding of the gums, ultimately resulting in tooth loss.
Some patients avoid gum disease treatment because they are not aware that minimally invasive treatment techniques exist. The LANAP® protocol is a preferred treatment option for many periodontists because it is easy to undergo, highly effective and causes little discomfort to the patient. During the procedure, FDA-cleared laser technology is used to pinpoint inflamed gum tissue in the pockets of the gums. To remove the infected tissue from the mouth, the laser emits bursts of targeted laser light. The laser is drawn only to inflamed tissue and leaves healthy tissue completely unaffected.
Once the targeted gum tissue is removed, the laser is used once again to create a clot and reduce post-operative bleeding. The laser also seals off the area so that it is less likely to become infected. The bite is then tested and adjusted in order to ensure that the patient is able to eat and speak without putting excessive trauma on one or more teeth. Patients who receive the LANAP® protocol are typically able to resume regular activities within just a few hours of receiving their treatment.
