San Marcos, CA (PRWEB) February 09, 2013
Dr. Valentina Obradovic has joined the ranks of an elite group that are trained in the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure, or LANAP, for treating gum disease. As part of the one percent of dental professionals offering LANAP and a pioneer to laser dentistry in the San Diego area, she is excited to bring this new technology to her San Marcos patients. It is the only laser treatment for periodontal disease that has been cleared by the FDA to date. It is also the only laser with the science, research and human histological studies backing its success.
LANAP is beneficial in that it is less invasive for patients and requires little down time for recovery. Traditional gum surgery can be very painful and involves a long healing process. There are many dangers when gum disease is left untreated such as sore and bleeding gums, bone degeneration and tooth loss. Those are just short-term effects. Left untreated extended lengths of time, gum disease can lead to health problems of a more serious nature such as heart disease and diabetes.
The LANAP procedure helps eliminate gum disease and heals the affected gum tissue. The procedure is very straightforward. First, Dr. Obradovic will use a probe to determine how deep the bacteria are located and then target the bacteria with the laser. The PerioLase MVP-7 laser is designed to specifically target damaged or diseased tissue and bacteria while allowing healthy gum tissue to remain intact. This means that there is a reduced amount of gum recession from the procedure, which helps protect the teeth.
Next, the gum tissue is stimulated through clotting to re-attach to the nearby tooth, and the bone is also stimulated to begin regrowth. Pain is reported to be minimal throughout the procedure, and no stitches are required.
Patients interested in LANAP should contact Dr. Obradovic today for a complimentary consultation. For more information about LANAP visit http://www.valentinadds.com.
