GROTON, Conn., July 2, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Drs. Gregory Toback and Marianne
Gum disease is a three-stage progressive condition characterized first by swollen, bleeding gums. During the initial stage of gingivitis, scaling and root planing can effectively halt the progressions. Periodontitis and advanced periodontitis have progressively worse symptoms, including chronic bad breath, loose teeth, and bone and tooth loss. Gum disease has also been linked to systemic health conditions including heart disease, diabetes, and osteoporosis.
Traditional osseous surgery uses scalpels to cut away diseased gum tissue before the teeth are thoroughly cleaned above and below the gum line. LANAP laser dentistry provides the same type of treatment in a minimally invasive manner. With the use of a laser, bacteria and diseased tissue are eradicated from around the tooth roots. Teeth are cleaned, then the laser is used to form healthy blood clots that encourage reattachment of the gums back to the teeth. LANAP is a less painful procedure that produces minimal bleeding and accelerates post-surgery healing. Treatment is accurate and effective, without the need for invasive scalpels or sutures.
The founder of the HP3 (High-Performance Periodontal Practice) continuing education series, and author of numerous papers and periodontal research, Dr. Toback is an authority in periodontics and is actively involved in the industry through regular speaking and teaching appointments across the United States. Dr. Urbanski has served as a clinical periodontology instructor at the University of Connecticut's School of Dentistry and the Yale General Practice Residency Program. Both Dr. Toback and Dr. Urbanski host three study clubs, Shoreline Periodontics Synergy Study Club, Hygiene Study Club and Spear Study Club to share their knowledge and educate other clinicians in the latest in dentistry. This periodontal team is also experienced in caring for patients in every stage of gum disease, and are certified and highly trained in the LANAP protocol.
