The infection from gum disease can spread all around your body; your heart, lungs, kidneys.
TORRANCE, Calif. (PRWEB) February 19, 2019
Periodontist, Dr. Arta Farahmand, raises awareness for LANAP®, a minimally invasive treatment for gum disease that utilizes modern dental lasers. The Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) uses the modern PerioLase® MVP-7 laser to gently and effectively remove bacteria and diseased tissue, the leading cause of gum disease. Dr. Farahmand is certified and trained to offer LANAP treatment for those suffering from gum disease, including persistent bad breath, receding gums and bleeding gums in Torrance, CA.
Gum disease is a common problem that develops in millions of adults. The disease frequently goes under-diagnosed because the symptoms are common, such as bleeding gums, constant bad breath or receding gums. Without treatment, gum disease can develop into advanced periodontitis, an incurable condition that can lead to tooth loss as well as a spread of infection to other parts of the body. As an experienced periodontist, Dr. Farahmand has the skills and technology to diagnose and treat gum disease in all of its stages.
“The infection from gum disease can spread all around your body; your heart, lungs, kidneys. We also know the linkage of this infection to cancer. The gum disease bacteria can go into cells and change the genomes of the cells to turn them cancerous,” says Dr. Farahmand on the dangers of unchecked gum disease.
Dr. Farahmand offers patients the option of LANAP laser therapy for treatment of gum disease. LANAP differs from traditional treatment in that it does not require scalpels, sutures and causes minimal bleeding. Treatment can often be completed in just one appointment and with a minimal recovery time. Additionally, LANAP is FDA cleared to offer True Regeneration, which helps form new bone to surround teeth after disease has caused bone loss.
An active member of the American Academy of Periodontology, Dr. Farahmand has over two decades of experience as a gum disease specialist. Her dedication to staying current with advanced technology, like laser dentistry, helps give patients more effective and gentle treatments. LANAP allows those who suffer from dental anxiety an opportunity to receive the dental care they need without the fear.
