Dr. David Baker is a dentist who provides patients in Austin, TX with gum disease treatment. As a leading dental professional in the area, Dr. Baker is committed to working with the most innovative, state-of the-art periodontal treatments. A dentist can now treat gum disease without inflicting excessive pain on their patients with the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®). This is a new method that uses a laser, rather than a blade, to remove bacteria and infected tissue. The result is often less pain and less bleeding. For patients in Austin, TX, gum disease treatment is no longer synonymous with pain and discomfort.
LANAP® is an important innovation, because it allows patients who would normally be averse to painful surgery to seek treatment without fear. In fact, only a small percentage of those suffering from gum disease will actually seek periodontal treatments by a dentist in Austin, TX. Gum disease treatment is necessary because, without it, the infection can destroy your teeth, gums, and even spread to other parts of your body. Research has shown that patients who avoid periodontal treatments by a dentist are at an increased risk for heart disease, diabetes, and pancreatic cancer. Until now, the majority of Austin, TX gum disease treatment options included invasive surgery. With LANAP®, patients no longer need to fear treatment.
With the introduction of LANAP® and the PerioLase® MVP-7™, Austin, TX gum disease treatment has become more predictable in its results. The PerioLase® MVP-7™ is an innovative new technology that allows us to distinguish between healthy and diseased tissue. This means that it is now possible to remove only the infected tissue while leaving the healthy portions unharmed. The result is that Austin, TX gum disease treatment now involves less pain and less bleeding.
