Pomona, NY (PRWEB) January 26, 2013
Robert Tracey, D.D.S., F.A.G.D., of General & Laser Assisted Dentistry (GLAD) is one of only a small percentage of dental professionals who are trained and certified to use the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure for periodontal disease treatment. Patients in New York now have more options for treatment because Dr. Tracey is a trained and certified laser dentist. Gum disease affects millions of adults across the country each year, and it not only wreaks havoc in the mouth but has been connected to a number of other serious illnesses such as heart disease and diabetes.
As a laser dentist, Dr. Tracey understands the technology and methods of using the LANAP procedure for periodontal disease treatment. Dr. Tracey uses the PerioLase MVP-7 laser to remove bacteria that has gathered in the pockets between the gums and the teeth. The diseased areas of gum are removed, leaving the healthy tissue. The laser is very selective, which makes it perfect for this procedure. After the bacteria are removed from the pockets, Dr. Tracey uses ultrasonic cleaners to remove tartar from the exposed teeth. The laser is then used to stimulate the healthy tissue to re-attach to the tooth, and the bone is stimulated to regenerate.
Dr. Tracey understands that out of the millions of people affected by gum disease only a small percentage seek treatment. Patients may be more willing to get the treatment they truly need when they realize that the LANAP procedure causes little pain or discomfort, leaves the healthy gum tissue intact, and requires little recovery time.
At GLAD, Dr. Tracey is making it easier for patients to receive the treatment they really need. Patients from all over New York are learning about the benefits of this new procedure for periodontal disease treatment. For more information about LANAP, visit http://www.roberttraceydds.com.
