LANAP treatment for gum disease is easier on the patient. Beyond oral health, there is a huge confidence booster for our patients.
Watertown, NY (PRWEB) September 01, 2017
Periodontist Dr. Emily Hahn is now a certified LANAP® trained specialist, offering patients a minimally invasive treatment option for gum disease with True Regeneration™, the only procedure FDA cleared to regenerate bone and gum tissue lost to gum disease. By adding the treatment to her services, Dr. Hahn demonstrates her commitment to the most advanced dental technology, as well as high quality of patient care.
"The LANAP technology caught my eye, and I loved the fact that it was a procedure that I could use to help patients who are anxious about traditional surgery or medically compromised patients who were not eligible for traditional treatment," said Dr. Hahn. "Making this treatment available to patients in Upstate New York is something I am excited to do, and hope it will change their lives."
Gum disease has been shown to have a connection to many serious systemic diseases including heart disease, stroke, certain cancers, diabetes, Alzheimer's and pre-term birth. Gum disease impacts women and men. Postmenopausal women with periodontal disease have a 14% higher risk of developing breast cancer, while men with gum disease have increased risk factors for lung cancer (36%), kidney cancer (49%), pancreatic cancer (54%), and blood cancer (30%) over men without gum disease.
"As the connection between oral health and the rest of the body continues to be explored, there is a greater focus on your mouth as a critical gateway to total health," continued Dr. Hahn. "LANAP treatment is easier on the patient. Beyond oral health, there is a huge confidence booster for our patients. A patient who previously had bad breath associated with gum disease, now tells me he talks and smiles more at work and with family. It’s truly a win-win for everyone. "
LANAP treatment targets and destroys the bacteria and endotoxins causing gum disease without damaging healthy gum tissue and without scalpels or sutures. The LANAP protocol can be performed in as little as one treatment session, and is safe to use on patients with health concerns such as diabetes, heart disease, and hemophilia.
