And yes, it's our goal to make gum treatment a pleasant experience for all patients.
Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) August 12, 2008
"Gum Disease", widely known by patients as one of the most dreaded and feared conditions of the mouth, has just gotten a lot less scary.
A group of Phoenix area dentists have created Ameridontics - the Centers for the Laser Treatment of Gum Disease. Unlike traditional gum disease treatment, which requires surgery, the Ameridontics doctors utilize the latest laser technology… LANAP (Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure). The non-invasive, patented, F.D.A. approved LANAP gently "zaps" gum disease.
The difference between LANAP AND TRADITIONAL GUM SURGERY is remarkable," said Dr Bruce L. Nelson, Ameridontics dentist. "In the past, treating gum disease meant painful surgical cutting and stitches. Patient recovery was slow, requiring weeks, and in some cases months, of healing," Nelson said.
According to Ameridontics dentist Dr. Nicholas Meyer, "With LANAP, the patient has little or no bleeding, very little discomfort and a much shorter recovery time. In fact, some patients have reported returning to work the same day they had the procedure."
Surveys have estimated that 80% OF THE ADULT POPULATION have some form of periodontal (gum) disease, and about 50 percent of those suffer with moderate to severe gum disease.
The importance of treating gum disease has never been clearer. In addition to tooth loss, new medical research suggests that gum disease may contribute to overall health complications, including heart disease, stroke and diabetes.
Unfortunately, many patients refuse the traditional surgery because of fear. "At Ameridontics, we aim to remove the anxiety from the treatment of gum disease," said Dr. Bruce Lachot, Ameridontics dentist.
A free, no-obligation consultation with an Ameridontics dentist is available by calling toll free, 1 (888) FIT-GUMS. More information about LANAP and Ameridontics is also available on their website: http://www.Ameridontics.com.
"LANAP reduces the discomfort, inconvenience, recovery time and expense of traditional methods," said Ameridontics dentist, Dr. Kent Loo. "And yes, it's our goal to make gum treatment a pleasant experience for all patients."
