Don't Lose Your Teeth To Periodontal/Gum Disease!
It's an exciting time in Dentistry, because technology is making it more comfortable, faster, easier, and most importantly of all, more successful! Here at Smiles by Payet Dentistry, we have long been on the leading edge of dental technology, and laser dentistry is an important part of that leadership. What we want you to know, though, is that we don't have just ANY old dental laser, we have the ONE laser that is truly proven to work on gum disease, with the research to back it up: the PerioLase MVP-7 dental laser, by Millenium Dental Technologies.
Laser Treatment for Periodontal (Gum) Disease
Gum Disease - Pyorrhea - Periodontal Disease: these are words that no-one ever wants to hear from their dentist, but the simple fact of the matter is that up to 70% of Americans suffer from this silent disease, which is responsible for more teeth being removed than any other reason. So why is it that so few people ever receive treatment (only 3% according to some studies)? For one very simple but powerful reason: FEAR.
For anyone who has experienced conventional treatment of gum disease with Scaling and Root Planing, aka a "Deep Cleaning." or conventional gum surgery, or Pocket Reduction Surgery, you know why people fear it: it hurts. That's all there is to it. Well, not really all there is to it; there's another reason - it doesn't really work! You can have Scaling and Root Planing several times and hope that your gums will improve a little bit, but if you don't keep up a rigorous schedule of 3-4 month maintenance cleanings with your dentist or periodontist (gum specialist), it's very easy for the gum disease to quickly do a lot more damage, and of course your dental insurance won't cover all those check-ups. But gum disease is serious, as Whoopi Goldberg attested on The View:
But now there is a better way - more comfortable, more effective, with the ability to actually regenerate bone where it was lost, to reconnect your gums to your bones the way they should and almost back to the level before gum disease started destroying them, and more. This way is called LANAP, and it is only availble from an exclusive and very limited number of doctors at this time, and we are proud to be one of those dental offices with a Periolase MVP-7 laser.
