Laser Technology Replaces Cut and Stitch Gum Surgery by a Chicago Periodontist
Many people with gum disease in Chicago would rather loose their teeth than have gum surgery by a Chicago Periodontist. Although gum surgery is highly effective for treating gum disease and can be done comfortably, the thought of it is enough to keep many people away.
Dr. Michael Marcus is a highly trained dentist in Chicago who has been trained and certified in the FDA approved procedure called LANAP which stands for Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure.
Rather than use a scalpel to treat gum disease, the LANAP procedure uses the gentle light of an Nd:YAG laser to treat gum disease. There are three steps to treating gum disease with the laser. In the first step the laser is placed into the pocket where it kills bacteria and removes the diseased tissue. In the next step, special scaling instruments are used to remove the tartar from the roots of the teeth. In the final step the laser is used at a different setting to create a special type of blood clot that allows new tissue to grow between the root and the gum and close the pocket.
Compared to traditional cut and stitch gum surgery patients who have had both procedures report much greater comfort and less root exposure with the laser treatment compared to flap surgery. In fact, many patients report no discomfort at all following the laser treatment.
Patients who have put off having their gum disease treated should look into laser periodontal therapy. Dr. Marcus has established a special web site at http://periodontistchicago.com to educate people about this groundbreaking FDA approved procedure. He is also giving a way a free report entitled “The Secrets to Treating Gum Disease Without A Scalpel.”
