Woodlawn, MD (PRWEB) May 03, 2016
Dr. Ari Moskowitz is pleased to announce the availability of laser dentistry for those in Woodlawn, MD at his state-of-the-art facility in Catonsville. He is now accepting new patients who are seeking the latest in gentle periodontal treatment of gum disease, without requiring a referral. The FDA-cleared LANAP® protocol uses a specially calibrated beam of light to target bacteria deep within the gums and remove tartar from the roots of teeth, so there is no need for incisions and sutures.
Good oral hygiene helps keep plaque from hardening on the teeth. This substance is primarily composed of bacteria, food debris and acids in the mouth, and once it solidifies on the teeth and roots, it can cause serious health issues. A person may first notice there is a problem when the gums become sensitive and swollen, and they may bleed when teeth are brushed. Left alone, bacteria will continue to attack gum tissues, spreading infection and decay. As gum disease advances, pockets of pus develop below the gum line and pull the gums away from the roots of teeth. The longer a person delays treatment, the more likely it is that teeth will be permanent damaged or lost.
Even when they understand the serious nature of gum disease, patients may be reluctant to schedule an appointment with a periodontist to receive flap surgery. This procedure involves having the gums lifted back so that the area can be cleaned and the gums stitched back in their original position. As an alternative to flap surgery, Dr. Moskowitz offers minimally invasive laser dentistry in Woodlawn, MD. The tip of the laser is about the width of three hairs, so he is able to insert it between the gums and teeth and clean the area without making any cuts. The LANAP® protocol may also stimulate new bone regeneration, so the gums are more likely to reattach to the teeth, minimizing the risk of gum recession.
