We have had patients who were told that all of their teeth had to be extracted, and they were going to be put into dentures, but treatment with laser surgery saved most, if not all of their teeth
Campbell, CA (PRWEB) December 23, 2011
Ueno Periodontics, a Campbell periodontist office located at 1930 S. Bascom Ave., Number 120, in Campbell, now offers Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP). LANAP is a periodontal gum-surgery procedure that is painless for the patient compared to traditional gum surgery. With LANAP, periodontists can now save some teeth that were once deemed hopeless and were scheduled to be extracted. This gives patients the satisfaction of keeping their own natural teeth. It is also much cheaper to keep existing teeth than to get extractions, bone grafts, implants, and new crowns or restorations.
“We have had patients who were told that all of their teeth had to be extracted, and they were going to be put into dentures, but treatment with laser surgery saved most, if not all of their teeth,” owner Dr. Jeremy Ueno of Ueno Periodontics said. “We aim to try and save teeth, instead of jumping into extractions and implants.”
Saving natural teeth is much more comfortable for patients compared to using dentures. It is also better to preserve the jaw structure and for the patient’s overall wellness, confidence and appearance.
LANAP requires fewer visits to treat the entire mouth, and patients are able to return to work or school on the same day. Most dental insurances also cover it.
