Millburn Dentist Seeing Success With New Laser Gum Treatment

MILLBURN, NJ--(Marketwired - August 24, 2015) - Dr. Scott Krosser, a Millburn cosmetic dentist, has had great results since introducing a laser technology that treats gum disease.

The Laser-assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) is a revolutionary tool that treats gum disease without using scalpels or stitches. About 75 percent of Americans will struggle with gum disease in their life. The disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults and has been linked to serious problems like diabetes and heart disease.

Dr. Krosser introduced LANAP into his practice about three years ago, giving patients access to minimally invasive gum treatment procedures.

“Gum disease is very prevalent in our society, and patients sometimes stray away from traditional gum treatment because it can be very invasive and often requires a lengthy recovery period,” said Dr. Krosser, who operates Millburn Dental Arts. “Using laser surgery, we can provide minimally invasive treatment for patients suffering from gum disease.”

Gum disease occurs when an infection is present in the gums. Common signs often include bleeding or swollen gums, receding gums or even bad breath, but it’s possible to have gum disease and have no physical signs. When the infection forms between the tooth and the gums, it’s known as a periodontal pocket. Serious gum disease can lead to tooth loss and bone deterioration.

LANAP uses special fibers to clean out the periodontal pocket and set the stage for bone rejuvenation and cell attachment. Instead of removing the diseased tissue -- which is the practice for traditional gum surgery -- LANAP kills off the infection. This difference in application means shorter recovery times for patients treated with LANAP.

“What we’ve found is that patients afraid of the dentist or nervous about their gum treatment do very well with the LANAP procedure,” Dr. Krosser said. “The bottom line is that the treatment effectively treats the problem and is minimally invasive to the patient, who now does not have to worry about painful cutting or stitches in their mouths.”

Millburn Dental Arts, 175 Main St., is a revolutionary family and cosmetic dental practice that has eight state-of-the-art operatories and the latest technology and equipment available in dentistry. The practice offers preventive care, teeth-whitening treatments, tooth-colored fillings, porcelain veneers, Invisalign, gum disease care, crowns, bridges, dentures, partial dentures, oral cancer screenings and TMJ treatment.

The Millburn dental office uses Waterlase to prepare teeth for fillings and crowns without pain, shots or drills; DIAGNOdent to detect tiny cavities; and CEREC to provide patients same-day crowns.

Dr. Krosser has practiced for 30 years and received his dental degree from Fairleigh Dickinson University. He has completed advanced training programs at the Pankey Institute, one of the most prestigious centers providing dental continuing education courses, and holds memberships with the Academy of General Dentistry, American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, Academy of Laser Dentistry, Academy of Computerized Dentistry and Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation. He has also been a member of the Millburn Chamber of Commerce since 1987.
