Farmington, MI (PRWEB) May 01, 2013
Roman Shlafer, DDS, PLLC, announces the expansion of his Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) gum disease treatment services to include residents of Livonia, MI. The advanced technology of the LANAP procedure is based on the PerioLase MVP-7 laser ability to perform surgery that traditionally required a scalpel and sutures. The advanced treatment process allows the dentist for gum disease treatment to remove diseased tissue in a manner that causes less bleeding, is minimally painful, and requires less down time.
Dr. Shlafer has joined the elite ranks of only one percent of dental professionals that offer the LANAP procedure for gum disease treatment. The procedure has been fully tested over a period of years and utilizes the PerioLase MVP-7 laser, which has been cleared by the FDA for dental procedure use. Patients undergoing the procedure generally experience little discomfort, and many can return to normal business the very same day.
The dentist for gum disease begins the procedure by determining the depth of the periodontal pockets between the gums and the teeth. The laser's pulsed light kills the bacteria and disintegrates the infected gum tissue. The laser is so selective that it can tell the difference between the infected tissue and the healthy tissue, so the healthy tissue stays intact. The laser promotes clotting so that the healthy tissue seals against the roots of the teeth, and sutures are not required to hold it in place for healing. The laser also utilizes bio stimulation to trigger the regenerative properties of the bone. This strengthens the teeth, promoting tooth retention.
More than 100 million adults in the United States suffer from gum disease. Gingivitis is the early stage of the disease and may include symptoms such as gums that are red and sensitive to hot and cold foods. At this stage of the disease, gum disease treatment is highly effective and can stop or even reverse its progress. The more advanced stage of the disease is called periodontitis, during which the supporting bones and fibers of the teeth are damaged. The LANAP treatment performed by an authorized dentist for gum disease can stop the progress of the disease and prevent tooth loss.
