Drs. Richard Chace, Jr., Rodney F. Horvat and Scott G. Cohen are urging all local residents to increase their awareness of gum disease during Gum Disease Awareness Month and learning how seeking effective gum disease treatment in Winter Park, FL can improve not only oral health but overall health as well. Eliminating gum infection can restore gum tissue and lower the risk of serious conditions such as heart disease and diabetes.
If left untreated, periodontitis can spread through the bloodstream to many other parts of the body and have direct impact on a person’s risk of contracting various diseases or exacerbating existing conditions. In addition, gum disease can erode gum tissue through recession. When this happens, teeth are at risk for being lost which, in turn, increases the chance of eventual bone loss if no tooth is present to support and stimulate the bone in the ways needed. Tooth loss can also leave patients facing implant surgery or other procedures that can potentially be avoided by treating the initial gum disease.
Many people are fearful of gum surgeries but Drs. Rodney F. Horvat and Scott G. Cohen are proud to offer laser gum surgery as a minimally invasive gum disease treatment in Winter Park, FL. Through the use of the laser, patients can eradicate their gum disease and experience minimal pain or bleeding. Treating the infection helps to restore gum tissue to its healthy state, saving both teeth and bone and reducing the chances for additional medical conditions to develop or worsen.
Known as Laser Assisted New Attachment Protocol, or LANAP, this gum disease treatment in Winter Park, FL leverages laser technology as the means by which infected tissue is detected and then vaporized. During the treatment, patients may feel a slight warming sensation but there is no cutting, no stitches and no complex anesthesia required, making the recovery process much simpler. With doctors and dentists alike acknowledging the relationship between gum disease and other medical conditions, the importance of new ways to restore gum tissue by eliminating infection is important. Interested patients are invited to schedule a consultation with Drs. Horvat or Cohen today.
