Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) January 31, 2014
As a leading general dentist, Dr. Bruce Nelson helps patients achieve their optimal oral health through his commitment to the latest treatment options including a minimally invasive laser gum surgery that can effectively treat periodontal disease. LANAP® delivers superior results for many Phoenix, AZ patients looking for effective gum disease treatment without the need for cutting and stitching.
LANAP® was the first laser gum disease treatment in Phoenix, AZ to be cleared by the FDA. The core of the LANAP® process is the PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser that hones in on the diseased tissue to essentially vaporize it. During the process, neighboring healthy gum tissue is virtually left intact, unlike traditional gum surgery where the cutting process typically involves the loss of non-diseased tissue as well. This helps to reduce the need for additional surgeries such as gum grafts after the initial treatment. Without the need for scalpels and sutures, laser gum surgery is much less invasive for patients.
Patients can identify early signs of periodontal disease such as redness, bleeding or swelling in the gums. Once these symptoms appear, seeking gum disease treatment in Phoenix, AZ is advised not only to treat gum disease, but to guard against increased risks for other conditions such as premature births, diabetes, stroke and more. Proper treatment of gum disease, whether via traditional methods or laser gum surgery, is an important way to stay healthier overall.
