The Pennsylvania Center for Dental Implants and Periodontics is profiled in this month’s Suburban Life magazine, the popular series of local publications that focus on enhancing the quality of life in the city and suburbs.
Highlights of the interview include:
• On treating gum disease with less-invasive options: “LANAP (laser-assisted new attachment procedure) has had a big, big impact on treatment. It has enabled us to take patients who were candidates for traditional surgery but would have required many extractions, so we’re now able to help patients keep their teeth. By treating the whole month at once (with LANAP®) rather than doing a quarter of the mouth per year through surgery, we’re able to reduce both systemic and local chronic inflammation levels, and most patients say ‘I can’t believe how much better I feel.’”
• On the difference between just treating patients and really caring for people: “No matter what we’re doing for a patient, whether it’s a soft-tissue graft, or treating gum disease, or replacing all their teeth, we’re focused on just two things: the patients’ treatment outcome and their experience.”
