Logan, UT (PRWEB) September 12, 2014
Dr. Willard W. Maughan of Maughan Periodontics raises awareness of the importance of maintaining proper oral health in recognition of Self-Improvement Month taking place this September. The doctor offers patients a number of treatments that can be utilized for the purpose of self-improvement, including a laser gum surgery known as the LANAP® protocol. The availability of this gum disease treatment in Logan, UT provides residents of the area with a minimally invasive option that does not require the doctor to use a scalpel or sutures in the procedure.
The significance of the availability of a minimally invasive gum disease treatment option is underscored by the widespread incidence of gum disease. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports that nearly half of all American adults suffer from some form of gum disease, a prevalence that should cause concern. This is especially true due to the fact that many recent studies have suggested there is a link between the presence of gum disease and the incidence of cardiovascular disease and several different types of cancer, among other serious health conditions. These statistics make clear the need for a gum disease treatment in Logan, UT that is accessible and minimally invasive, as is the case with the LANAP® protocol, a laser gum surgery offered by Dr. Maughan.
LANAP® treatment is a relatively simple laser gum surgery that involves the use of the PerioLase® MVP-7™, which is used to target only the harmful bacteria residing in the pockets of the gums. Through this process, it is possible for the doctor to preserve the healthy gum tissue and stimulate regrowth of bone that has been lost to this disease, both of which are significant benefits of LANAP® treatment.
Patients in need of gum disease treatment in Logan, UT may wish to contact Dr. Maughan’s office for more information or to schedule an appointment for a consultation. While LANAP® laser treatment is considered a minimally invasive procedure, it is still important for the doctor to discuss the treatment options that are available based on the individual needs of each respective patient before determining a course of action. With the assistance of Dr. Maughan, it is possible for patients to explore a number of paths to self-improvement through continued oral health.
