Laser Gum Surgery is Now Available for Gum Disease Treatment in Roswell, GA Through Dr. Judd Shenk
Date:7/11/2013

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) July 11, 2013

Dr. Judd Shenk, a Roswell, GA dentist, now offers the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure, a revolutionary gum disease treatment that uses advanced laser technology to remove the infection caused by periodontitis.

With periodontitis rapidly reaching epidemic proportions in the United States, educating patients about their gum disease treatment options has never been more important. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, gum disease affects one out of every two adults aged 30 or over in the United States. Seeking gum disease treatment is especially imperative due to growing evidence demonstrating a link between periodontitis and systemic diseases like diabetes, heart disease, and pancreatic cancer.

Prior to LANAP®, removing the bacteria and infection caused by periodontitis required cutting into the gum tissue using a scalpel, a procedure that can trigger quite a bit of pain and discomfort. However, since Dr. Shenk uses a laser to vaporize the infection when performing LANAP®, he can effectively remove the infection while leaving the healthy tissue intact. Laser gum surgery also offers many other advantages over traditional surgery, including less pain, bleeding, gum recession, and healing time. In addition, the PerioLase® MVP-7™ used to perform LANAP® actually stimulates the bone surrounding the root of the tooth and encourages bone regeneration. As a result, Dr. Shenk can often save teeth that would have otherwise been extracted.

Although LANAP® has revolutionized gum disease treatment, only a small number of dental professionals in the country have completed the certification requirements and possess the sophisticated equipment needed to perform laser gum surgery. Roswell, GA residents are encouraged to visit http://www.drshenk.com to learn more about their gum disease treatment options. To schedule a consultation with Dr. Shenk, please call (678) 951-8109.
