Jacksonville, FL Periodontist, Dr. Richard E. Aguila, Offers Laser Gum Disease Treatment

Jacksonville, FL (PRWEB) May 02, 2013

Dr. Richard E. Aguila, a periodontist with Contemporary Implant Dentistry & Periodontics, now uses the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) to treat gum or periodontal disease. Patients in Jacksonville that have been concerned about gum disease treatment and have a fear of going under the scalpel may appreciate this technologically advanced protocol that utilizes lasers. The procedure is designed to target and remove diseased gum tissue and the bacteria that cause gum disease without adversely affecting healthy gums.

Dr. Aguila has joined only one percent of all dental professionals in the country that have become trained and certified to use LANAP. Patients travel to Jacksonville for this procedure that is 95 percent effective in removing periodontal disease from a patient's mouth.

The first step is for the periodontist to measure the depth of the pockets between the gums and the teeth so that the PerioLase MVP-7 laser can be used most effectively. The laser kills bacteria and removes the affected gum tissue. Ultrasonic scalers are then used to clean off the plaque that has accumulated below the gum line. Next, the laser forms clotting as the gums are packed against the roots of the teeth so that sutures are not necessary. During the procedure, the laser stimulates the jawbone to begin the natural regeneration process. Pain and discomfort are minimal and many patients are able to return to their normal activities within a day of having the procedure.

Statistics show that there are millions of adults in America suffering from gum disease. Without proper treatment serious dental problems can occur. In addition, the disease has been scientifically linked to serious health issues such as diabetes, respiratory illness, and heart disease. Patients who opt for LANAP may be able to reduce one of the factors that contribute to such illnesses. Information about LANAP for gum disease treatment is available at
