Plainville, CT (PRWEB) October 08, 2014
Dr. David R. Edelson seeks to raise awareness of the many symptoms of gum disease and the dangers of forgoing treatment in honor of October being Dental Hygiene Month. Through his dental office in Plainville, CT, Dr. Edelson offers a number of dental treatment options, including a minimally invasive periodontal disease treatment option known as the LANAP® laser protocol. Through the use of this procedure, Dr. Edelson is able to offer patients a means by which their gum disease can be treated without the use of a scalpel or sutures.
The LANAP® protocol is able to eliminate the symptoms of gum disease through the use of the PerioLase® MVP-7™, which specifically targets only the harmful bacteria residing in the pockets of the gums. It is for this reason that gum disease can be treated in a manner that is minimally invasive, as the procedure is able to preserve the healthy gum tissue while also avoiding the need to use a scalpel or sutures. This reduces the recovery time necessary and also increases the patient’s level of comfort during the course of the procedure. The availability of this gum disease treatment through Dr. Edelson’s dental office in Plainville, CT is beneficial to patients seeking an option that is minimally invasive.
Gum disease is an increasingly common problem across the country, as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) report that 47.1 percent of the adult population suffers from some level of this oral infection. The fact that a large percentage of those suffering from gum disease do not seek treatment is particularly troublesome, as there have been recent studies that indicate the presence of a link between periodontal disease and serious medical conditions such as cardiovascular disease, stroke, diabetes, and preterm labor. Patients who are experiencing any of the symptoms of gum disease should therefore seek treatment as soon as possible.
Patients who are interested in learning more about the treatment options available through Dr. Edelson’s dental office in Plainville, CT should contact the office at their earliest convenience in order to schedule an appointment for a consultation. The doctor can then discuss available treatment options, which may include the LANAP® laser protocol.
