Fort Worth Dental Now Offers Laser Gum Surgery As A Successful Treatment For Local Patients Suffering From Gum Disease
At Fort Worth Dental, patients suffering from gum disease can now receive the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure for the treatment of periodontal disease. This new treatment procedure uses a laser rather than a scalpel to remove the diseased gum tissue from the mouth. The FDA-cleared laser also kills the bacteria that cause the disease.
Fort Worth, TX (PRWEB) October 29, 2012
Fort Worth Dental's Dr. Terry M. Zang, Dr. Arthur J. Mund, and Dr. Justin Mund have joined a very small group of dental professionals that are fully certified and trained to provide the new Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure to their patients that suffer from gum disease. Only one percent of dental professionals across the country can provide LANAP. With the new protocol, periodontal treatment can proceed without the need for a scalpel to cut away unhealthy tissue.
Millions of adult Americans across the country have gum disease and most of them are not actively seeking treatment. The problem is very treatable, but many people do not wish to undergo invasive treatment procedures. With the LANAP protocol these patients can receive periodontal treatment, which is only minimally invasive. The doctors at Fort Worth Dental hope that information about the new procedure will convince patients suffering from this problem to seek the much-needed and very effective treatment.
Gum disease can cause the gums to become sensitive and to bleed. Without treatment they can recede to the point where teeth fall out. Not only that, but such issues as diabetes, pancreatic cancer and heart disease have been linked to periodontal disease. For a person's overall health, treatment is very necessary. With the LANAP protocol, a very selective laser, the PerioLase MVP-7, is used to destroy the diseased tissue and bacteria. The healthy tissue is left behind to re-attach to the teeth roots and it is all handled with minimal discomfort. This laser surgery procedure is FDA cleared and has been fully tested with proven results in the fight against disease.
People who have a general fear of dental procedures and a specific fear of scalpels now have this laser alternative for treatment of gum disease. The sooner patients seek treatment the sooner the disease can be eliminated, and they can start on the path to better overall health. More information can be found at http://www.fortworthdental.com.
