Share Article

Dr. Jonathan Szymanowski and Dr. Thaddeus Szymanowski recognize Dental Hygiene Month this October by educating patients about the symptoms of gum disease in Sacramento, CA and the advanced treatment option of laser gum surgery. The LANAP® protocol, a laser gum surgery alternative, offers gum disease patients a treatment option without the use of scalpels and sutures.

In light of Dental Hygiene Month, Dr. Jonathan Szymanowski and Dr. Thaddeus Szymanowski are urging people suffering with gum disease in Sacramento, CA to seek treatment with laser gum surgery. Laser gum surgery is quickly becoming the preferred method of gum disease treatment for doctors and patients alike because it is minimally invasive and requires a much smaller time commitment than traditional gum surgery.

The LANAP® protocol, a type of laser gum surgery, is unique because it utilizes a specialized laser called the PerioLase®MVP-7™ that selectively targets and removes diseased gum tissue and the bacterial cause of gum disease without harming the surrounding healthy gum tissue and teeth. The LANAP® protocol is also ideal for patients in regard to post-operative symptoms. Patients who undergo the LANAP® protocol experience less post-operative pain and discomfort and often resume their normal day to day activities directly after treatment.

Effectively treating gum disease is very important, recent research shows a link between serious whole body complications and gum disease. Gum disease has been shown to increase the risk of diabetes, heart disease, pancreatic cancer and low birth-weight babies. Treating gum disease is very important to overall body health, but proper oral hygiene before the onset of gum disease is even more important.

Research has proven that people who brush their teeth for two minutes twice daily have a significantly decreased risk of gum disease and dental cavities. In addition to proper brushing, interdental cleaning, like flossing, helps decrease those risks even more. Using anti-bacterial mouth wash and chewing sugar-free gum has also been shown to aid with decreasing the risk of gum disease and dental cavities. Regular dental cleanings and checkups are vital in the prevention and treatment of gum disease.

Oral health is dependent on many things including proper dental hygiene and the effective treatment of existing gum disease. Patients suffering with gum disease symptoms in Sacramento, CA should seek treatment as soon as possible to stop the progression of the disease and decrease the risk of whole body complications.
