Gaithersburg, MD (PRWEB) April 22, 2014
Dr. Rice provides an advanced laser gum surgery technique that is proven effective without the cutting and stitching of gum tissue required by traditional gum surgery to patients located in the Gaithersburg, MD area. Symptoms of advancing gum disease include:
- Bleeding and discolored gums
- Gum pain
- Pus around the gums
- Persistent mouth odor and bad breath
- Loose teeth
Laser gum surgery in Gaithersburg, MD is called the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure, or LANAP®, and uses a computer guided laser to eliminate diseased gum tissue and the bacteria that cause the infection in the gums. Most patients report only mild discomfort and slight bleeding with the minimally invasive and FDA cleared laser surgery. LANAP® is the most efficient way to target the source and eliminate the cause of most gum pain and other symptoms of gum disease quickly and effectively.
Dr. Rice performs LANAP® laser gum surgery on patients in Gaithersburg, MD who suffer from the effects of advanced periodontal or gum disease. This revolutionary procedure allows patients to return to work or other life activities the same day in most cases. Because the laser eliminates the bacteria that cause gum disease, there is no need for scalpels that cut healthy gum tissue, as with traditional gum surgery. Since healthy gums are not further traumatized in the process of removing diseased tissue and bacteria, healing time is reduced.
