Greensboro, NC (PRWEB) January 07, 2016
Dr. Kenneth Peavy is pleased to announce that he is now accepting patients in need of treatment for their gum disease in Greensboro, NC, and who wish to undergo the LANAP® protocol. This new laser dentistry treatment allows Dr. Peavy to treat the underlying cause of gum disease by removing infected areas of the gums, known as periodontal pockets, without damaging the healthy gum tissue surrounding these areas.
Gum disease is a serious problem in the U.S. and around the world. Patients may not even realize they have an issue until they start to experience swollen, sensitive gums that bleed easily. If they do not receive adequate treatment for this condition, it can easily progress into periodontal disease and its more severe form, periodontitis. After advancing to periodontitis, patients may begin to notice loose or missing teeth and extreme infections in the gums. The LANAP® protocol is one of the most effective tools a doctor can use to help treat all forms of gum disease and keep it from progressing. In some cases, patients may even be able to keep their loose teeth once they receive the laser dentistry treatment.
To perform the procedure, Dr. Peavy uses the Periolase® MVP-7™, a laser specifically designed for use in the protocol. When a patient comes in with gum disease in Greensboro, NC, the doctor uses the laser to clear the infection from periodontal pockets. The laser is calibrated to only remove infected tissue and bacteria, so healthy gum is left unaffected and intact and healing and reattachment can immediately begin. This also results in minimal pain and swelling during and after the procedure takes place.
Dr. Peavy recommends all patients with gum disease in Greensboro, NC, be evaluated for their suitability to receive laser dentistry treatment. Those who are interested can contact his office to schedule an appointment.
