Connecticut Periodontist Dr. Richard Amato is Changing the Way Patients with Gum Disease in Monroe, CT Receive Gum Disease Treatment with Laser Surgery

Monroe, CT (PRWEB) April 27, 2013

Dr. Richard Amato is a Connecticut periodontist who is trained and certified in using Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) for the treatment of gum or periodontal disease. This treatment protocol utilizes specially designed lasers that have been cleared for use by the FDA. Only a very small percentage of dentists in the United States has the training to apply this advancement method for gum disease treatment.

There are millions of adults suffering from gum disease in this country. Many have not sought treatment for various reasons, the most common reason being a fear of the traditional treatment methods that use scalpels and sutures. With LANAP eradication of the disease can occur with less bleeding, pain or discomfort, as well as a shorter down time for patients. Patients who allow gum disease to progress without treatment will usually have major dental issues that could lead to loss of teeth. Additionally, these patients are more likely to be diagnosed with debilitating illnesses such as heart disease, stroke, coronary artery disease and diabetes, according to scientific studies.

Understanding the procedure may help some patients decide it is time to seek treatment. With LANAP the periodontist examines the patient to determine whether he or she is a good candidate for the procedure. The periodontal pockets are then measured, and the PerioLase MVP-7 laser is activated to remove bacteria and the gum tissue that has become diseased. The remaining tissue and the bone are not harmed by the FDA cleared laser. In fact, the bone is stimulated by the laser to regenerate which can help to strengthen the jaw. No scalpel is needed because the laser is up to 95 percent effective in removing the diseased tissue.

Patients undergoing LANAP have reported minimal discomfort or pain. Many patients are able to return to work later in the day after the procedure has been completed, so down time is short. Gum disease treatment is an important component of oral health. People interested in learning more about gum disease and LANAP can find information at
