Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) October 27, 2015
Jesus Medina, Jr., DDS is now certified to offer revolutionary laser gum surgery. As a leading dentist in Las Vegas, NV, Dr. Medina is always investigating the latest technology and adopting the methods that will provide his patients with the best in personalized, gentle dental care. Gum disease causes a number of serious health risks that go beyond the decay and loss of teeth and bone structures in the mouth. The beam of light produced by the FDA-cleared BIOLASE WaterLase iPlus 2.0™ laser eradicates bacteria while minimizing bleeding to prevent infection from entering the bloodstream and causing further health problems.
Scientists have recently discovered that oral bacteria is present in other parts of the body where there is a serious health issue, such as colon cancer, heart disease and diabetes. A link between these diseases and gum disease has been confirmed, making good oral hygiene even more important than was previously thought. Removing bacteria through brushing, flossing and professional dental cleanings is not always enough. Many individuals have a high risk for gum disease because of a misaligned bite, tobacco use or medications. The potential for tooth decay, gum disease and other health problems makes it essential for individuals to find a dentist in Las Vegas, NV they can trust.
Traditional methods for dealing with gum disease are invasive and painful, and often take weeks to heal. A dentist in Las Vegas, NV typically has to cut the gums and pull them away from the roots of teeth to scrape away the calculus and remove damaged tissue and decay. Dr. Medina understands that fear of the procedure can cause some to procrastinate in spite of the risks. To eliminate the source of that anxiety, he now performs BIOLASE WaterLase iPlus 2.0™ laser gum surgery. With the fine tip of the laser, he is able to access and remove bacteria and infection below the gum line. The wounds are cleaned and cauterized, which minimizes bleeding, stimulates new tissue growth and speeds recovery. Patients do not typically require anesthetic during the procedure, eliminating the need for shots.
