Periodontal disease is a common and often neglected condition. A chronic oral infection, periodontal disease, results in symptoms of bleeding, swollen, and receding gums, but far worse, it can lead to tooth and bone loss. In addition, new studies show that periodontal disease shares reciprocal links with serious medical conditions, including diabetes and heart disease. Why do people avoid treatment for this insidious infection? It could be a lack of time to schedule dental visits or perhaps it results as a fear of dental surgery. Now, there is a convenient alternative to traditional surgery. Dr. Vito Clarizio treats periodontal disease in just two sessions with less pain, using laser surgery in Whitestone, NY.
The Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) eradicates the bacteria that cause periodontal disease, affording you more convenience and less pain with laser gum surgery. LANAP® relies upon the PerioLase® MVP-7™ and is the only FDA cleared protocol for the treatment of periodontal disease. The pulsed light of the PerioLase® MVP-7™ can selectively target bacteria and diseased tissue, completely eliminating the need for scalpels and sutures.
Patients who undergo LANAP® report faster healing times and less pain with laser surgery as compared to traditional surgery. In addition, Dr. Clarizio is able to control and therefore minimize bleeding with the use of the laser. This results in safe and effective alternatives for patients who are most at risk of complications due to bleeding and infection, such as hemophiliacs and diabetics.
Beyond the reports of minimized bleeding and less pain with laser surgery, Dr. Clarizio can use the laser to stimulate the regeneration of bone. This effectively reverses the damaging effects of periodontal disease with laser surgery in Whitestone, NY. LANAP® is the only treatment proven to regenerate bone.
If you have periodontal disease, there is no reason to avoid treatment. You can immediately have less pain with laser in Whitestone, NY.
