Sequim, WA (PRWEB) March 17, 2014
Dr. Nathan Gelder, a dentist in Sequim, WA, recently launched a new website focused on educating patients about the causes, symptoms, and treatment options available for gum disease, such as Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) and dental implants.
With the rising rate of periodontitis in the United States and increasingly more studies revealing correlations between gum disease and systemic diseases like heart disease and diabetes, public oral health education is more important than ever before. Dr. Gelder’s new site provides extensive information on LANAP®, a cutting-edge gum disease treatment alternative that enables dental professionals to remove the bacterial infection caused by periodontitis without invasive cutting or suturing.
Dr. Gelder is dedicated to providing patients with the information they need to attain and maintain healthy smiles and belongs to a select group of dental professionals who have completed the training required to perform LANAP®; only one percent of dental professionals in the United States currently offer the procedure. Since many people in the general public are unaware of the health complications associated with gum disease, Dr. Gelder’s new patient-centered website also provides a wealth of information on the links between periodontitis and health problems like pancreatic cancer, premature babies, and stroke.
