Yardley, PA Dental Implants Can Be Improved by Removing Gum Disease Prior to Placement Using Laser Gum Surgery With Dr. Edward A. Marcus

Bucks County, PA (PRWEB) July 30, 2013

Dr. Edward A. Marcus now treats patients in the Bucks County area with a laser gum surgery called the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP). This treatment uses an FDA cleared laser, the Periolase MVP-7 that stimulates bone growth while removing gum disease. This creates an environment conducive to saving natural teeth. In the event that Dr. Marcus cannot save all of the patient’s teeth, they can take comfort in knowing that if they need dental implants they will have a much greater chance for long term success due to the fact that the laser has reduced the bacteria and diseased tissue.

LANAP is used to remove bacteria as well as diseased tissue without harming the teeth or healthy gum tissue. Before starting the procedure, Dr. Marcus measures the depth of the patient’s gum pockets. The Periolase MVP-7 operates at a special wavelength that is invisible to water, healthy tissue, root surface, or bone. It is, however, highly absorbed in dark pigmentation and the bacteria that live in the mouth. It is for this reason that Dr. Marcus can remove the diseased tissue and bacteria without affecting the healthy tissue. After Dr. Marcus has ablated the bacteria he is able to remove tartar and calculus with specialized instruments. To finish the procedure, he uses the laser to form a natural barrier around the teeth in order to prevent recontamination of the pockets. Since the treatment requires no cutting or stitching, patients experience little - if any – bleeding, discomfort, or recession.

Sometimes not all teeth can be saved, and Dr. Marcus offers dental implants to patients who need their teeth replaced. Implants offer both cosmetic and health benefits. Implants stimulate the jawbone, which prevents it from eroding away over time like it would if dentures were used. Implants are also harmless to neighboring teeth. Implants are attractive to many patients because they feel more natural than other types of tooth replacements.

Dr. Marcus believes that when treating periodontal disease he should use the most advanced technology available. At times it is necessary to combine treatments like LANAP and dental implants for the best possible clinical outcome, but his number one priority is saving his patients natural teeth and helping them live a healthy lifestyle free of the rigors of gum disease.
