Milford, OH Laser Gum Surgery at the Ohio Valley Center for Periodontics and Implants Can Help Prevent Tooth Loss by Stimulating Bone Growth

Milford, OH (PRWEB) August 04, 2013

Dr. Scott Silverstein and Dr. Matthew Parker recommend the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) to patients seeking a gum surgery alternative to potentially save the teeth that are at risk of loss due to gum disease. LANAP is the first FDA-cleared laser gum surgery for gum disease treatment. About half of all adults over age 30 in the United States suffer from some form of gum disease. Gum disease occurs when bacteria in the mouth is not properly removed through good oral hygiene practices. The bacteria interact with tissue around the teeth, damaging the tissue and leading to redness, inflammation and sensitivity of the gums. Eventually, this can lead to tooth and bone loss.

Even though periodontal disease can contribute to serious issues like tooth and bone loss, many people neglect to seek treatment. Some dental professionals believe that this hesitation, in many cases, is due to patients’ fear of traditional gum disease treatment methods. Traditionally, gum disease treatment, also referred to as “flap surgery,” required a periodontist to cut open the gums, manually scrape away the tartar from around the teeth, and then suture the gums back into place. Drs. Silverstein and Parker recommend LANAP as a gum surgery alternative.

LANAP uses a highly specialized laser to gently remove tissue damaged by gum disease. It leaves healthy, connective tissues unharmed, allowing them to reattach to the roots of teeth. It also stimulates the bone in that area to regenerate, promoting healthy bone density and reducing bone loss. Consequently, most patients can expect faster healing times and less discomfort after the procedure. This type of laser gum surgery can be performed in as few as two sessions.

Drs. Silverstein and Parker are two of very few dental professionals in the United States who are certified to perform LANAP. They believe in offering his patients the most advanced periodontal procedures. Patients can visit for more information.
