Periodontal Disease Treatment
Advanced Gum Disease Treatment With Your Cary Dentist
You may not realize it but swollen and bleeding gums can be a whole lot more serious than “I guess I need to floss a little bit more”. According to a recent study by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention almost half of Americans suffer from varying degrees of periodontal disease. Periodontal disease first effects the gums of your mouth, but continuing research shows there is a significant link between your oral health and your overall health. Some even tie heart disease, diabetes, pancreatic cancer and even low birth-weight babies directly to periodontal disease.
Dr. Acton and his dedicated team at Cary Family Dental near Morrisville and Apex, NC have invested the time and resources to understand periodontal disease and how to effectively treat it. In fact, we offer a leading-edge gum disease treatment technology called LANAP.
What is LANAP?”
LANAP (Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure) is a phenomenal new periodontal disease treatment technology designed to offer a better solution than those of gum disease treatment protocols of years past. Older periodontal disease treatments called for invasive treatments; cutting and drilling away tooth and gums, or even extracting teeth entirely. The LANAP treatment allows us to remove the periodontal disease and bacteria with laser precision… literally! Your gums can then heal quickly and return to their natural, healthy state.
