Austin, TX (Vocus) September 21, 2010
At his Austin cosmetic dentistry practice, Austin Dental Spa, Dr. Mark Sweeney is protecting his patients from what former Surgeon General David Satcher called the ‘silent epidemic’ by utilizing the newest approach to battling gum disease. Present in eight out of ten people, symptoms of gum disease often go unnoticed, which is why it is commonly called the ‘hidden disease.’ To ensure his patients do not lose the fight against gum disease, Dr. Sweeney is using the minimally invasive method known as Perio Protect® which has been proven to fight the bacteria that cause gum disease in a gentle, yet effective way, killing 99.98% of the bacteria according to a study conducted by the University of Southern California.
While Dr. Sweeney also offers general and restorative dentistry procedures such as dental implants in Austin, he says he is doing his part to help his Austin Dental Spa patients avoid becoming one of the millions of Americans affected by gum disease. Through the use of a customized treatment tray, and prescribed medication, Dr. Sweeney is helping his patients beat gum disease with the homecare regimen. Several side effects that have been reported by patients using the Perio Protect Method™ are whiter teeth and fresher breath.
Whether Dr. Sweeney’s patients experience whiter teeth while fighting gum disease, or pursue teeth whitening, once they’ve received treatment for gum disease, research shows the Perio Protect Method™ available at the Austin Dental Spa is an effective, minimally invasive tool in the battle against a disease afflicting nearly 80% of Americans.
