Shenk Dental Care Stimulates Bone Growth for Gum Disease Patients Seeking Dental Implants with Laser Gum Surgery in Atlanta, GA
Date:5/21/2013

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 21, 2013

Patients of Dr. Michael Shenk and Dr. Judd Shenk of Shenk Dental Care who have lost teeth due to gum disease and would like permanent tooth replacements now have alternatives to traditional surgery for gum disease treatment with laser gum surgery. Gum disease must be treated prior to dental implants, which have the highest success rate out of all tooth replacement options.

The Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) is a relatively new procedure cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) that greatly improves patients’ overall gum health. It has shown to be effective in treating gum disease and also regenerating bone growth. Both of these benefits are huge advantages in cases where dental implants are needed. Before an implant can be placed, there needs to be sufficient bone available to attach the implant to. Additionally, an implant cannot be placed in diseased gums, as it would not take proper hold and the positioning of any dental implants would only push any bacteria or other disease further down the gum tissue and closer to the bone.

Gum disease has historically been treated by traditional surgical methods. These methods are quite effective overall, but have a much higher rate of pain and side effects as well as a much longer recovery time. Additionally, scalpel gum surgery removes a greater amount of gum tissue, including healthy tissue, than laser gum surgery. The latter is able to identify and target only diseased tissue and leave any and all healthy gum tissue completely intact. This reduces the need for further reconstructive procedures down the road as well as speeds up the process of receiving dental implants.
