ORANGE, Calif., March 27, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Jin Y. Kim, a board-certified periodontist
Gum disease is a condition involving the build-up of harmful bacteria between the gums and the teeth. Without intervention, the bacteria will destroy healthy gum tissues, teeth and bone. Treatment is necessary to avoid tooth loss, gum recession as well as systemic health conditions. Dr. Kim typically recommends LANAP therapy treatments to reduce bacterial growth and foster healthier relationships between the gums and teeth.
The LANAP protocol utilizes lasers to ensure complete precision when destroying infection-causing bacteria in the periodontal pockets. It does not require scalpels and sutures, which makes it a preferable option for many patients. LANAP leads to less trauma and bleeding at the site of gum disease, hastening post-therapy recovery and soft tissue regeneration.
LANAP can be used to effectively remove diseased gum tissue without harming surrounding healthy tissues. Due to this advanced technology and the proven protocol, this therapy can also be trusted to smooth the surfaces of tooth and bone affected by long-term gum disease. This technique leads to more responsive gum growth and reattachment to the teeth.
Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth and bone loss in adults across the country. Symptoms include bleeding gums, chronic bad breath, loose teeth, inflamed gums, red gums, tender gums and missing teeth. In its earliest stages, gingivitis, gum disease can be cured. At later stages, it can be managed through regular deep cleaning appointments with a trained periodontist.
