Roswell, GA Bone Loss Risk Can Now Be Reduced by Treating Gum Disease Using Laser Gum Surgery through Shenk Dental Care
Date:9/2/2013

Roswell, GA (PRWEB) September 02, 2013

Periodontal patients of Roswell, GA dentists Drs. Michael and Judd Shenk have a renewed chance of preventing the tooth and bone loss that is a common result of gum disease using the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP). In severe cases of gum disease, teeth must be extracted, because there is insufficient healthy gum tissue to hold them in place. When teeth are missing and no implant is placed, the nearby bone in the jaw does not receive the stimulation that it did from the tooth root and eventually resorbs or degenerates. LANAP laser gum surgery helps to prevent this from happening by providing more robust gum disease treatment.

Many people focus solely on the cosmetic consequence of missing teeth, but the problem is greater than that. Speech impediments can develop and jaw bone becomes reduced. If this is allowed to continue for an extended period of time, the jaw can develop a “sunken in” appearance. This is a clear sign that bone loss has occurred. LANAP was recently cleared for use by the Food and Drug Administration because of its ability to help patients prevent bone or tooth loss while eliminating gum disease.

When teeth are firmly intact in healthy gums, their roots naturally stimulate activity in the jaw bone every time a person chews, speaks or moves their mouth. Preventing or properly treating gum disease is a primary way to preserve teeth, thereby making it a primary way to preserve bone. In addition to treating gum disease, the laser used in LANAP directly stimulates the growth of new gum tissue which also helps to save teeth and eventually bone. Together, the effects of LANAP make this new laser gum surgery an outstanding way of preventing the loss of bone and teeth.

LANAP is far less invasive than other forms of gum disease treatment. There are no stitches or scalpels used. Laser gum surgery can be completed in far less time than traditional methods as well. During LANAP, the laser targets and works on diseased gum tissue alone, leaving the maximum amount of healthy gum intact. This is another way that LANAP allows a higher rate of saving teeth and preventing bone loss. Patients interested in learning more about LANAP and how they can maintain their best oral health and smile should call Shenk Dental Care today.
