Fountain Valley, CA (PRWEB) April 20, 2013
Dr. Robert Mokbel now provides Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) gum disease treatment services to patients in the Santa Ana area. Gum disease is a serious problem for millions of Americans, and LANAP laser surgery for gum disease has been shown to provide consistent and reliable results. Bleeding gums are often one of the symptoms of gum or periodontal disease. Many people do not seek treatment because of a fear that traditional dental surgery is a painful procedure that requires a long period of recuperation.
With this advanced laser surgery for gum disease, Dr. Mokbel is able to kill bacteria and remove unhealthy gum tissue from the mouth. At the same time, the FDA cleared laser does not harm the healthy gums, which means less recession occurs after the surgery. The periodontal disease treatment's main goal is to preserve teeth, so the benefit of laser-stimulated bone regeneration cannot be dismissed. Dr. Mokbel seeks to provide this treatment to patients all over the area. Only one percent of all dental professionals can offer this procedure to patients, so patients travel from all over the state to receive this alternative periodontal disease treatment.
Traditional methods of treating gum disease either require a scalpel to cut away the disease and sutures to help the gums heal, or require teeth to be removed from the mouth, replacing them with bridges or dentures. These treatment methods often take a significant time investment on the part of the patient. With LANAP, patents experience little if any pain or discomfort and reduces bleeding and inflammation. The amount of time a patient must spend recovering from the procedure is minimal, as most patients resume normal activity levels in a day or less.
In the early stages of periodontal disease, symptoms are often minimal and may include inflamed or bleeding gums. At the early stage, the disease can be reversed with proper treatment. When periodontal disease has advanced, laser surgery for gum disease may be necessary. LANAP is highly effective at removing the disease from the mouth, and with proper periodontal care, the patient can remain disease free.
