Don’t be fooled by false claims of laser treatment for gum disease
Politics of LANAP
This video illustrates the reason why gum surgery should not be done any more. Or at least used as a last resort. This technique continues to be used to this day. Improvements in technology have made this procedure obsolete in most cases. To see the differences in laser gum treatment and traditional gum surgery see GUM SURGERY.
In two thousand and four Doctor Paul Ritker was named by time magazine as one of the one hundred most influential people in the world now how does one get considered for a list of the most influential people in the world well for starters you must do something trans formative change the world in a way that is likely to have long term implications fifteen years ago it was known but often ignored that more than half of the first heart attacks occurred in people with normal cholesterol levels 7 more than ten years ago doctorate chris started the series of studies that demonstrated quite convincingly than me that inflammation was a major factor in miocardial and strokes the data even indicated that the risk student elevated inflammation wasn’t least is great as the risk to the elevated ldl cholesterol as you might imagine this revolutionary finding was not welcomed by everyone the doctorate permit criticism not with the argument but with more and more evidence in the past ten years doctor richter has truly transform medicne as a direct result of his determined efforts elevated inflammation is now recognized as a critical factor in the major chronic diseases of aging doctor richter is very much

Otherwise, it’s like being hounded in the Expo Hall on the last day of a dental convention. The bias is so thick you can cut it with a knife.
