Farmington, MI Low Birth Weight Risks Can Possibly be Reduced by Removing Gum Disease in Expecting Mothers using Laser Gum Surgery with Dr. Roman Shlafer
Date:9/5/2013

Farmington, MI (PRWEB) September 05, 2013

Pregnant women who have gum disease or warning signs like bleeding gums should set up an appointment with Dr. Roman Shlafer. Dr. Shlafer uses a minimally invasive type of gum disease treatment, the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP), to remove periodontal disease, which may be correlated with an increased risk of having a low birth weight baby.

A baby born with a low birth weight may face respiratory and heart problems early on, as well as an increased risk throughout life of developing chronic conditions like diabetes and heart disease. An estimated ten percent of babies in the United States are born with a low birth weight, a figure that has not changed much over the last several years despite medical advances. Research has indicated there may be a link between low birth weight in babies and mothers have gum disease. Pregnant women who show signs of periodontal disease or know that they have it should seek treatment to eliminate this risk factor.

Conventional gum surgery is a procedure that many patients may fear or put off, but Dr. Shlafer offers an alternative type of treatment that is just as effective at removing gum disease. LANAP uses a laser to target periodontal disease without doing any harm to healthy tissue. The procedure does not involve cutting, suturing, or any sacrificing of healthy gum tissue. The risk of infection is also reduced, since the laser sterilizes the site and stimulates the formation of a protective blood clot.

Many patients are able to prevent periodontal disease through strong oral hygiene habits. However, patients who have inflamed or bleeding gums should see Dr. Shlafer to find out whether they need gum disease treatment. Pregnant women in particular should be vigilant about watching for and treating periodontal disease. More information about LANAP and the consequences of leaving gum disease untreated can be found at Dr. Shlafer's website.
