Drs. Kelly A. Misch and Amar Katranji of Michigan Implants and Periodontics celebrate Dental Hygiene Month in October by educating the community about periodontal disease. They encourage patients in Ann Arbor, MI to seek help early rather than waiting for the disease to progress. One of the keys to receiving early treatment is to recognize the signs of gum disease, like bleeding gums. Once gum disease is diagnosed, Drs. Misch and Katranji can treat it by using the LANAP® laser protocol, one of the most advanced treatments available today.

Healthy gums are pink and do not bleed when brushing or flossing. Gums that become red, swollen, or bleed easily need attention. A common misunderstanding is that as long as the gums do not hurt, they are okay. Actually, during early stages of periodontal disease, the gums will not hurt. Even when they bleed, there is generally no pain. Yet, an infection in the gums is present and growing. When pain does occur, it is usually in the advanced stages of the disease. By this time, the disease has progressed so far that it is already eating away at the gums and bone that supports the teeth. Many people have lost teeth that could have easily been saved had they visited a periodontist when they first noticed bleeding gums in Ann Arbor, MI.

The LANAP® protocol is a minimally invasive laser surgery that treats gum disease. It has such high success rates, that it is even effective once the disease has become advanced. However, as with most healthcare procedures, it is best to begin treatment as early as possible. Thankfully, the LANAP® protocol treats periodontal disease with minimal discomfort. No cutting, stitches, or difficult recovery period are necessary. Drs. Misch and Katranji perform the treatment in their office, and most patients return to normal activities immediately afterward.

Anyone interested in learning more about the LANAP® protocol and those concerned with bleeding gums in Ann Arbor, MI are encouraged to contact Drs. Misch and Katranji at their office. They have extensive educational information on their website, and are happy to answer additional questions.
