Paducah, KY Gum Disease Treatment Can Now Help Prevent Tooth Loss Using Laser Gum Surgery with Dr. Kelvin White of White and White Family Dentistry

Paducah, KY (PRWEB) August 08, 2013

Dr. Kelvin White of White and White Family Dentistry now offers patients a more effective way to combat periodontal disease and increase the likelihood of saving teeth that are at risk of falling out due to gum disease. Tooth loss commonly occurs when persistent or untreated gum disease is present. The FDA gave clearance for the use of a new gum disease treatment called the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) that delivers better results in less time than traditional methods.

LANAP works well to not only treat periodontal disease but also to ensure the overall health of the gums and bones in order to prevent tooth loss. Teeth stimulate the jaw bone to remain strong and healthy every time a person chews or talks. When a tooth is missing, that portion of jaw bone is no longer stimulated properly and can begin to deteriorate itself, a process known as resorbtion. LANAP stimulates jaw bone, helping to prevent tooth loss by strengthening the bone and encouraging reattachment.

Tooth loss has negative side effects beyond just cosmetic appearance. The lack of a tooth or teeth is associated with impaired speech, reduced density of jaw bone that can lead to a “sunken in” appearance of the jaw and face over time, poor nutrition and the misalignment of neighboring teeth. Proper support for teeth is critical, and that includes healthy gums and bone. Proper and effective gum disease treatment is a prime way that patients can achieve this.

Dr. White is proud to be among the first in his profession to offer LANAP to patients, and he believes it can offer many people an increased chance at healthy gums and teeth, as well as overall health. Dr. White invites you to call his office today to learn more about LANAP and see if it may be right for you.
