Jackson, MS Periodontist, Dr. Roger Parkes Brings Gum Disease Patients the FDA-cleared Laser Gum Disease Treatment

Jackson, MS (PRWEB) June 24, 2013

Gum disease Patients of periodontist Dr. Roger Parkes no longer have to endure extended surgeries with painful and lengthy recovery periods, but can now receive modern treatment with the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure. Dr. Parkes is among the leaders in his field to implement the use of this new surgical laser method for effective gum disease treatment. LANAP offers patients the best in results with minimal impact and discomfort.

Traditional gum surgery is performed with a scalpel, requiring appropriate numbing (or sedation for some patients) and is also associated with some pain during recovery. Additionally, scalpel methods of gum disease treatment result in the cutting away of some healthy gum tissue in the process of removing the diseased tissue. LANAP is able to target only the affected areas, leaving all healthy gum tissue completely intact. Additionally, the laser is dramatically less invasive than the scalpel and results in less pain for patients.

The use of LANAP for gum disease treatment is delivering advantages to patients every day. Decreased pain, decreased gum loss or recession, decreased time for healing and improved results all make this option for removing periodontal disease a revolutionary one for doctors and patients alike. During the surgery, the Dr. Parkes passes a laser between the affected gum and tooth areas to directly target only the diseased tissue, removing it with the laser. The process is also shown to promote the growth of bone that may be lost as a result of the gum disease.

Most patients report feeling a slight warmth during the procedure. Because there is minimal pain associated with LANAP, most patients are able to go back to work or resume any other normal activity the next day. Pain medication or other recovery aids are typically not needed. Treating gum disease is critical to one's overall health, as health studies show gum disease is connected to a variety of serious health issues.
