New York, NY (PRWEB) March 22, 2013
With 75 percent of the U.S. population suffering from some form of gum disease, Dr. David J. Poiman trained and is now offering the only FDA cleared laser for treatment of gum disease. The Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure allows trained dental professionals to treat periodontal disease in patients without invasive surgery or extensive healing time.
Left untreated, gum disease can affect more than just your dental health. Studies have linked it with an increased risk for heart disease, stroke and low birth-weight or premature babies. However, despite the large population with the disease and the harmful effects it can have on the body, many who have been diagnosed with periodontal disease refuse to seek treatment because traditional treatment of gum disease requires the use of a scalpel and sutures.
Unlike traditional surgery, LANAP allows Dr. Poiman to treat his patients’ gum disease without the pain of traditional gum surgery. LANAP works without scalpels and sutures, instead using wavelengths of light that can tell the difference between diseased and healthy tissue. The laser zaps away the bacteria that causes disease and causes very little gum recession or patient discomfort. Dr. Poiman is now able to treat periodontal disease before it leads to tooth and bone loss, and hopefully before it causes long-term effects on the rest of the body. This minimally invasive procedure is the first and only FDA cleared treatment for gum disease and has been shown to provide measurable, predictable results.
