San Jose, CA Periodontist, Dr. Joyce M. Litch Now Uses The New, FDA Cleared Laser Gum Surgery For Patients Suffering From Gum Pain In San Jose

San Jose, CA (PRWEB) March 17, 2013

Dr. Joyce M. Litch is now offering the innovative Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure to her San Jose gum disease patients. People with this problem usually experience significant gum pain, and the recommended treatment is often surgery. However, LANAP offers a new and less-invasive alternative for such patients.

The LANAP treatment uses a small laser to remove diseased tissue and kill the bacteria that causes gum disease. Because it is a less-invasive procedure than traditional gum surgery (which uses a scalpel and sutures), patients usually experience less pain. They also enjoy the benefits of a faster recovery time, as the laser treatment requires less healing.

Another important difference between traditional gum surgery and the LANAP treatment is the reduction in gum tissue loss for people who choose the laser method. When a scalpel is used to remove diseased tissue, there is often a lot of healthy tissue that gets removed as well, simply because there is no way to get to the diseased spots without cutting through healthy gums. This is where the LANAP treatment is different. The laser operates at a wavelength that deciphers diseased tissue from healthy tissue, and it effectively removes the diseased areas without causing any harm to healthy gums. This method results in less gum pain, as well as less gum line recession, which can prevent further problems for patients in the future.

Studies show that the LANAP treatment produces excellent results. This innovative and less-invasive procedure reduces recovery time for patients, and it also helps prevent future gum problems. It generally reduces pain and inflammation of the gums as well. The LANAP treatment is a very effective procedure for those seeking an alternative to traditional gum surgery.
