BOSTON (PRWEB) January 16, 2018
Boston area Periodontist Dr. Justin M. Cifuni now offers the LANAP® protocol to treat patients with gum disease and LAPIP™ protocol for ailing dental implants. As a LANAP-trained clinician, Dr. Cifuni is at the forefront of the future of dentistry, joining a top-tier class of clinicians who put their patients first using FDA-cleared True Regeneration™ technology.
"Gum disease is a rampant problem, and I was frustrated with having to give up on teeth and constantly place implants on those patients with severe cases of gum disease," said Dr. Cifuni. "The results I get with the LANAP treatment are more favorable than traditional surgery, and patients love the fact that it's less invasive with a quicker recovery time."
LANAP treatment targets the bacteria and endotoxins causing gum disease in a minimally invasive manner, without harming healthy tissue. The recovery time is much quicker and patients report less pain when compared to traditional surgery. The LANAP protocol is also the only treatment of its kind FDA cleared to regenerate the bone and tissues lost to gum disease.
Studies have shown a link between gum disease and other serious illnesses, such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes and more. With the high patient acceptance of LANAP treatment, Dr. Cifuni is able to help patients save their teeth. Retention of natural teeth has been shown to increase your lifespan, according to research.
"The fact that patients are willing to get treated with the LANAP protocol is great, because they are not only saving their gums and teeth, but also potentially saving themselves from other forms of poor health," added Dr. Cifuni.
