Falls Church, VA Gum Disease Patients Now Have Advanced Laser Gum Surgery From Dr. William Dougherty
Date:3/9/2013

Falls Church, VA (PRWEB) March 09, 2013

William V. Dougherty, III, D.D.S., is now certified on the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure for the treatment of gum disease. Only one percent of dental professionals can boast this certification and provide this service to their patients. Millions of adult Americans have periodontal disease, yet the majority of them do not go in for periodontal disease treatment. By educating patients on the benefits of the new LANAP procedure, Dr. Dougherty is confident that more adults will receive the treatment they need.

Gum disease begins when bacteria in the mouth are allowed to flourish and grow as plaque builds up on the teeth. Some of the early symptoms can include red or tender gums or gums that bleed when brushing or flossing teeth. As the disease progresses it can lead to gum recession and bone loss. This can allow teeth to loosen and shift in the mouth and can lead to tooth loss. However, in addition to the dental problems that gum disease can cause, this disease has also been linked to serious health problems such diabetes, stroke, pancreatic cancer and heart disease, just to name a few.

Dr. Dougherty utilizes the LANAP periodontal disease treatment procedure and the highly specialized PerioLase MVP-7 laser to remove the bacteria and diseased gum tissue from the mouth without harming healthy tissue. This usually means that there is less gum recession than is often a result of traditional treatment methods. In addition, because a scalpel is not necessary to cut away the gums, the healing and recovery times are much faster than with traditional treatment. The laser also helps the gums attach to the teeth roots so no sutures are needed. Another benefit is that the laser is capable of stimulating bone regeneration, which can help to save teeth that have previously been written off as un-savable.

The LANAP procedure causes little, if any, pain or discomfort and most patients are able to go back to doing normal things such as working the same day as the procedure. Minimal time off is required for the procedure and healing and recovery times are generally quite short.
