Murfreesboro, TN (PRWEB) October 13, 2014
Dr. Steven Daniel and Dr. Joanne Gaydos-Daniel of Periodontics & Implant Dentistry honor Dental Hygiene Month this October by educating patients on the many potential complications that can arise due to untreated dental issues. Offering dental care in Murfreesboro, TN, Drs. Daniel and Gaydos-Daniel provide a wide variety of treatment options to patients, including the LANAP® laser protocol, which is a minimally invasive method for treating gum disease. Left untreated, it is possible that gum disease can lead to tooth loss and a host of other serious medical conditions.
Through the use of the LANAP® protocol, Drs. Daniel and Gaydos-Daniel provide patients with access to a form of dental care in Murfreesboro, TN that addresses the issue of gum disease without the use of a scalpel or sutures. This is possible due to the use of the PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser, which is able to target the harmful bacteria in the pockets of the gums while also preserving the healthy gum tissue. This sort of procedure is quite valuable, as it enables the large portion of Americans who are suffering from gum disease to seek treatment in a minimally invasive manner. Since gum disease is a leading cause of tooth loss, this treatment may also assist patients in avoiding the future loss of their teeth.
While the widespread nature of gum disease is certainly a growing concern (the CDC reports that over 47 percent of American adults suffer from some form of the disease), the fact that tooth loss is caused by this disease should raise further alarm. Not only that, but there have also been many recent studies indicating that gum disease can lead to a number of other serious medical conditions, including heart disease and certain types of cancer. Given the consequences, it should be the case that those suffering from gum disease seek out dental care in Murfreesboro, TN at their earliest possible convenience.
For more information about the LANAP® protocol and the other services offered by Drs. Daniel and Gaydos-Daniel, interested parties should contact the doctors’ office to schedule an appointment for a consultation. The doctors may wish to discuss the best course of action for each individual patient on a case by case basis.
