Albany, NY Periodontist Reed Ference, DMD, Calms Fears of Patients with Gum Disease by Offering LANAP®, AnAdvanced, Less Invasive Treatment Solution
Albany,NY (PRWEB) September 19, 2014
Capital Region Periodontics and Dental Implants, led by Dr. Reed Ference, is excited to announce the latest addition to their treatment options for patients with periodontal disease, gingivitis and those needing dental implants. Often referred to as the “gentle alternative”, the LANAP® laser treatment removes the fear factor normally associated with traditional gum surgery. No cutting, no stitches, less discomfort and bleeding make
this procedure a very attractive oral surgery alternative for Dr. Ference’s Albany NY patients.
“The differences between the traditional method of removing gum disease and the advanced, FDA-approved LANAP® method are significant both for those treating and those receiving treatment,” Reed Ference, DDS, M.Dent. Sc., explains.
LANAP® (Laser-Assisted New Attachment Procedure) has the unique ability to precisely and safely target and destroy diseased tissue without causing any change to surrounding healthy tissue. LANAP® can save natural teeth that otherwise would require extraction by promoting bone regeneration. The procedure gently “zaps” gum disease and offers a more comfortable patient experience and much quicker recovery time.
According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) 50% of adults over 30 suffer from periodontal disease. Growing medical research continues to link gum disease to a myriad of other health complications including heart disease, diabetes, stroke, pre-term births and cancer. A research group from Case Western Reserve University’s School of Dental Medicine has just discovered a link between gingivitis-causing bacteria and colon cancer. LANAP® is the newest weapon to fight gum disease and improve overall health.
Dr. Ference is committed to innovations in bone and tissue regeneration. He has placed over 4,000 dental implants restoring thousands of smiles the last 25 years. With a majority of the adult population having some form of periodontal (gum) disease, Dr. Ference’s use of LANAP® gives hope and a solution to patients that have treatment anxiety. His practice, Capital Regional Periodontics and Dental Implants, practices a full range of periodontics with expertise ranging from cosmetic periodontal surgery, dental implants, crown lengthening and non-invasive LANAP® laser treatment.
Dr. Ference has been practicing in the capital region since 1990. He completed his dental training at the Stonybrook University School of Dental Medicine in 1984 and completed specialty training in periodontics at the University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine, where he was awarded an NIH research-training grant. He was appointed Director of Undergraduate Periodontics at NYU College of Dentistry following his specialty training.
