A compromised immune system can significantly increase the chances of becoming infected with COVID-19. People with cardiovascular disease also have an increased risk and gum disease can exacerbate these risks. Treating gum disease will help strengthen the immune system and LANAP may help.
Millburn, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/01/2020 -- The LANAP protocol is a minimally invasive treatment for gum disease which uses a dental laser to re-grow three major components including periodontal ligaments, new alveolar bone, and new cementum. The LANAP protocol is the first and remains the sole protocol for FDA approved True Regeneration, and it has been widely adopted by the dental community.
Research points to a connection between gum disease and inflammation that can precede heart attacks, strokes, and other vascular events. The risk is even greater with the addition of high cholesterol. In the fatty deposits of individuals with atherosclerosis, a condition in which the arteries build up with plaque, researchers have discovered oral bacteria. These deposits may break loose or narrow arteries if left untreated, subsequently clogging them and causing a heart attack or stroke.
LANAP is an option for patients suffering from moderate to severe gum disease. It is performed by a LANAP-trained doctor using local anesthesia. The procedure results in less pain and swelling following the operation, recovery time is quicker, and it stimulates the body to use its natural healing response, which means there is no need for a doctor to use growth factors the patient's body will not recognize.
