Encino, CA (PRWEB) March 26, 2013
Dr. Andrew Satlin is now bringing the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure into the fight against gum disease for his periodontal patients in Encino, CA. LANAP is revolutionizing the way gum disease is treated, because it is minimally invasive and uses no scalpels to remove diseased tissue like traditional gum surgery does. Instead, the laser removes the tissue and kills off the bacteria. The laser is so specific that the teeth and healthy gums are not affected by it. It causes the healthy gums to attach to the tooth root through clotting so there is no need for sutures. This helps the procedure to be minimally painful and require less recovery time than traditional gum surgery.
Gum disease not only causes dental health issues but has been connected to other serious health issues such as pancreatic cancer, low birth-weight babies and heart disease, just to name a few. When the disease progresses far enough it can cause receding gums and even lead to tooth extractions.
The laser treatment is designed to lessen the fears of patients who have concerns about dental treatments. No scalpel will be cutting the gum tissue; rather a laser will remove only the tissue that is diseased. No stitches or sutures are needed to hold the remaining gum tissue together, because the laser assists in reattaching the tissue to the roots of the teeth.
