Periodontist, Dr. John M. Lane Brings a Gum Disease Surgery Alternative to Florence, AL with the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure

Florence, AL (PRWEB) August 27, 2013

Dr. John M. Lane is now offering the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP), the latest gum disease surgery alternative to patients in Florence. Gum disease is a condition that can cause tooth loss and also negatively impact the overall health of the body. This condition occurs when, in the absence of proper dental hygiene, bacteria thrives in the mouth. These bacteria infect the tissues surrounding the teeth, causing pockets to form around the roots. This results in loosened teeth that may need to be extracted. Laser gum disease treatment can remove gum disease while possibly saving natural teeth.

Recent studies also suggest a link between periodontal disease and conditions like heart disease, diabetes and pancreatic cancer. Pregnant women who suffer from conditions of the gums may have a higher chance of premature birth and the delivery of low-birth weight babies. Despite the potential health consequences, the majority of gum disease cases go untreated.

Doctors who are not certified to offer LANAP remove gum disease by cutting open the gums, scraping away diseased tissue, and then repositioning the gums and suturing them back together. Dr. Lane now offers a non-invasive gum disease surgery alternative that may be preferred by patients who are fearful of traditional dental surgery. LANAP is a high-tech answer to periodontal disease.

With LANAP, Dr. Lane uses a selective laser to remove diseased tissue. Healthy tissue is left alone, allowing it to grow and heal in the absence of damaged tissue. This facilitates faster recovery times than traditional periodontal procedures. The laser also stimulates regeneration of bone in the jaw. The stimulation of healthy re-growth of tissue and bone may allow a patient to keep natural teeth that would otherwise need to be removed. The process can be completed in as few as one or two short sessions.

Dr. Lane believes that this advanced technology will improve gum disease treatment in Florence by restoring periodontal health with the least discomfort and shortest period of recovery time possible. For more information about LANAP and other periodontal treatments, visit
