LANAP is used to remove bacteria as well as diseased tissue without harming the teeth or healthy gum tissue. Before starting the procedure, Dr. Marcus measures the depth of the patientís gum pockets. The Periolase MVP-7 operates at a special wavelength that is invisible to water, healthy tissue, root surface, or bone. It is, however, highly absorbed in dark pigmentation and the bacteria that live in the mouth. It is for this reason that Dr. Marcus can remove the diseased tissue and bacteria without affecting the healthy tissue. After Dr. Marcus has ablated the bacteria he is able to remove tartar and calculus with specialized instruments. To finish the procedure, he uses the laser to form a natural barrier around the teeth in order to prevent recontamination of the pockets. Since the treatment requires no cutting or stitching, patients experience little - if any Ė bleeding, discomfort, or recession.
Sometimes not all teeth can be saved, and Dr. Marcus offers dental implants to patients who need their teeth replaced. Implants offer both cosmetic and health benefits. Implants stimulate the jawbone, which prevents it from eroding away over time like it would if dentures were used. Implants are also harmless to neighboring teeth. Implants are attractive to many patients because they feel more natural than other types of tooth replacements.
Dr. Marcus believes that when treating periodontal disease he should use the most advanced technology available. At times it is necessary to combine treatments like LANAP and dental implants for the best possible clinical outcome, but his number one priority is saving his patients natural teeth and helping them live a healthy lifestyle free of the rigors of gum disease.
