Raleigh, NC (PRWEB) February 16, 2016
To celebrate Gum Disease Awareness Month this February, Dr. Paresh C. Naran is educating his patients about the seriousness of the disease and the revolutionary treatment offered at his practice. Those who suffer from gum disease in Raleigh, NC, can opt for LANAP® treatment which uses laser dentistry technology to treat bacteria and damaged tissue. This minimally-invasive procedure avoids the need for incisions and sutures, so patients experience a full recovery in much less time.
One of the first signs people with gum disease in Raleigh, NC, may notice is redness or tenderness around the gum line. This indicates that bacteria have spread and are attacking the delicate tissues supporting the teeth. As the infection worsens, pockets of pus develop around the roots and separate the gums from the teeth. This painful process may cause teeth to fall out, but this may not be the most serious effect. Scientists have discovered the same bacteria found in gum disease is associated with colon cancer, heart disease, diabetes and other health problems. Some believe the link may be from infection entering the bloodstream through the open wounds below the gum line.
As any dentist in Raleigh, NC, will tell their patients, gum disease can be treated. However, more severe cases may require surgery. At most dental practices, this could mean creating incisions in the gums to separate them from the teeth for a proper cleaning. Dr. Naran uses laser dentistry rather than sharp dental tools so his patients do not have to undergo the trauma of traditional methods. The LANAP® protocol uses the PerioLase® MVP-7™, a fine-tipped laser that can access the affected area without cutting the gums with a scalpel. An ultrasonic tool removes tartar, and the specially calibrated beam of light targets bacteria without harming healthy tissue. The laser also cauterizes the wounds to prevent excess bleeding and stimulates new bone growth for a fast recovery.
