Falls Church, VA Dental Implants Can Be Improved by First Removing Gum Disease with the FDA Cleared Laser Gum Surgery Offered by Dr. William Doughterty
Date:7/18/2013

Falls Church, VA (PRWEB) July 18, 2013

Dr. William Dougherty can now use laser gum surgery to efficiently remove gum disease, optimizing the success of dental implants for periodontal patients whose teeth cannot be saved and need replaced.

The Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP), is a technique that utilizes a PerioLase MVP-7 laser to remove diseased gum tissue without effective neighboring healthy tissue. Healthy gums are one of the most important components in a patient’s ability to save his or her own teeth as diseased gum tissue cannot effectively support a tooth. In cases where teeth are lost, LANAP makes the successful placement of dental implants more possible by removing gum disease.

Traditional periodontal surgery involves a scalpel to cut away damaged tissue. In the process, some portion of non-diseased tissue is also lost. The PerioLase MVP-7 targets only the diseased gum areas, retaining as much healthy gum tissue as possible. Additionally, scalpel surgeries require anesthesia prior to the procedure as well as bleeding and pain during the recovery period. With laser gum surgery, only minimal anesthesia may be needed and little to no bleeding or pain follow the treatment. Most patients are able to resume all normal activities immediately following their LANAP surgery.

Because teeth require a strong foundation, the health of the gums is critical to preventing tooth loss. There are, however, some instances where a tooth cannot be saved. In these cases, the options for replacement include bridges, dentures or dental implants. Implants are generally considered the superior choice as they are more permanent and prevent ultimate eroding of the jaw bone, which can happen if there is nothing rooted into the bone. They also have the most natural looking appearance and feel, making them a favored choice for many patients.

The use of laser gum surgery to save teeth or help with the success of dental implants is just one of the ways that Dr. Dougherty uses the latest dental techniques to benefit patients.
