Clearwater, FL Gum Disease Treatment is Now Performed Using Laser Gum Surgery at Northwood Dental

Clearwater, FL (PRWEB) August 14, 2013

Northwood Dental in Clearwater, FL is changing the way people think about gum disease treatment. Now, patients with moderate to severe gum disease can achieve healthier gums and teeth with gentle laser gum surgery from Northwood Dental. This means patients are more likely to seek intervention that will save their teeth and keep them healthier.

As many as 75 percent of Americans have gum disease, a common cause of tooth and bone loss. Even worse, research indicates that untreated gum disease can cause or aggravate illness elsewhere in the body. Unfortunately, many people resist gum disease treatment because until now, traditional options of treatment involved a scalpel. Scalpel surgery may cause greater discomfort, because it entails cutting into the gum line to dig away the bacteria that causes periodontal disease.

Northwood Dental is one of only a handful of dental professionals to offer the minimally-invasive LANAP® gum disease treatment. LANAP® is the only FDA-cleared laser gum surgery to restore health to teeth and gums with remarkable precision and minimal pain. Northwood Dental uses the PerioLase® MVP-7™, a unique, FDA-cleared dental laser that has revolutionized gum disease treatment, because it removes bacteria from gum pockets without compromising nearby healthy tissue. While the scalpel can destroy some of the healthy gum tissue, the laser identifies and kills only bacteria and diseased tissue. The undamaged healthy tissue can begin to reattach to the tooth root surfaces. Backed by scientific and microscopic tissue studies, laser gum surgery can even reverse bone loss by generating new bone growth around existing teeth. Bone regeneration is a new discovery unique to this gum disease treatment.    

Healthy teeth and gums are essential to good health. Northwood Dental hopes more patients will take the opportunity to learn about laser gum surgery by calling or visit their website.
