Fort Myers, FL (PRWEB) October 19, 2015
Individuals with common symptoms of gum disease, including bleeding gums, can now receive laser-based gum disease treatment in Fort Myers, FL, from Dr. William Greider. Dr. Greider treats patients with the LANAP® protocol, which is a less invasive procedure in comparison to other oral methods of treatment. Patients with moderate to severe gum disease may be ideal candidates for laser-based treatment, with the LANAP® protocol.
Dr. Greider is proud to be a dental professional, who utilizes the LANAP® protocol at his practice for gum disease treatment in Fort Myers, FL. Bleeding gums is often regarded as one of the earliest symptoms of gum disease, and patients who notice this symptom are urged to seek treatment promptly. When gum disease is left untreated, additional symptoms may often develop, including noticeable bad breath, destruction of oral tissue, and loss of teeth. Even more alarming is the connection that has been established by researchers between advanced gum disease and other diseases, such as heart disease and diabetes. Patients who want to improve their overall health are encouraged to start with their oral health.
The LANAP® protocol treats gum disease without the use of scalpels. The precise accuracy of this laser is capable of locating gum tissue which is swollen with bacteria and inflammation and removing it by targeting the area with pulses of laser light. Most patients experience minimal bleeding during the procedure and very little discomfort once the procedure has been completed. Due to the unique manner in which the laser seals off the treatment area, the risk of infection is reduced, eliminating the necessity for uncomfortable sutures. Patients who receive the LANAP® protocol are also able to retain their healthy gum tissue, as opposed to manual removal with scalpels, which often results in the loss of surrounding, healthy areas.
Dr. Greider encourages those who are considering gum disease treatment in Fort Myers, FL, to schedule a consultation with his practice. While some people may be unsure of whether they have been affected by the disease, bleeding gums, which are swollen and visibly inflamed, may be indicative of gum disease, gingivitis (a precursor to gum disease) or a more serious condition. Patients can schedule a LANAP® protocol consultation with Dr. Greider by calling his Fort Myers practice.
