Patient with Gum Problems Prefers Laser Treatment
Dr. Joseph Nemeth, a periodontist in Southfield, MI was recently featured on the local Channel 4 news talking about lasers in dentistry. His office was the first periodontal practice in Michigan to use lasers and he feels it "revolutionizes" treatment.
The LANAP (laser assisted new attachment procedure) uses a super fine laser tip to slide between the teeth and gums. Laser energy is then used to target infected and unhealthy gum tissue. The healthy, normal gum tissue is left untouched.
Next any hard plaque on the tooth surface is removed. Then the laser is slipped in again, this time to sterilize the "pocket", the space between the tooth and gum which accumulate bacteria.The laser seals the nerve endings and tissue in a way that the surface of the gums don't bleed, therefore often no sutures or stitches are required with treatment.
