Advanced Treatment of Gum Disease in Wallingford

Dr. Randy J. Greenberg in Wallingford is one of the few dentists in Connecticut to offer the FDA cleared Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®), which is utilized for patients who have moderate to severe levels of gum disease. This convenient laser periodontal therapy allows for the removal of diseased tissue and bacteria with minimal pain and recovery time, and without damaging teeth or harming healthy tissue in the process.    

What is Gum Disease?  

Our mouths are full of bacteria, mucus, and other particles. These three substances combine to create plaque. Plaque that has not been removed becomes tartar, which must be professionally removed during regular dental visits at least twice per year. Bacteria that cause gum disease live in these deposits and produce toxins which in turn cause our bodies to destroy the structures that support our teeth. If enough bone is lost over time, the teeth can become loose and may be lost.    

Symptoms of Gum Disease  

Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, can be identified by symptoms like bad breath, bleeding gums, receding gums, and loose teeth. These symptoms should be analyzed immediately, as the location of the disease allows it direct access to the bloodstream and has been associated with serious health issues such as heart attack, stroke, diabetes, and premature birth. In many cases, gum disease is virtually painless and asymptomatic, becoming very dangerous for those who do not receive regular dental exams.    

A Short Overview of Laser Periodontal Therapy  

• Before the procedure, patients are evaluated to determine the severity of their gum disease.
• The procedure is performed with the PerioLase® MVP-7™, which is a target specific laser that essentially vaporizes diseased tissue and bacteria.
• Blood clots are then created around the treated areas and the gum tissues are compressed against the surfaces of the teeth so that sutures are not required.
• The bite, or the way in which the teeth fit together, is evaluated and adjusted as necessary.
