In recognition of Dental Hygiene Month, Dr. Todd Smith and Dr. Michael Cole of Smith and Cole Laser & Cosmetic Family Dentistry seek to raise awareness of the importance of proper oral hygiene. According to the doctors, this includes understanding the importance of daily oral hygiene practices along with the value in seeking proper care as soon as symptoms arise, as something like bleeding gums indicates the need for expeditious treatment. Patients looking for a gum disease treatment in New Braunfels, TX can turn to Smith and Cole Laser & Cosmetic Family Dentistry, as the practice provides patients with the opportunity to explore treatment options that include the LANAP® laser protocol, a minimally invasive method for treating gum disease and its symptoms.
There is no denying the fact that gum disease is a prevalent issue in the United States, as nearly half of American adults suffer from some form of the disease. To be precise, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) indicate that 47.1 percent of Americans are currently dealing with gum disease in some manner, which is of particular concern due to the fact that this disease has been linked in several studies to an increased risk of cardiovascular disease and cancer, among other health problems. This information underscores the importance of seeking gum disease treatment in New Braunfels, TX when bleeding gums or other symptoms are present.
Through Smith and Cole Laser & Cosmetic Family Dentistry, patients in the New Braunfels area can explore their eligibility for LANAP® laser treatment, a minimally invasive option of which patients may be able to take advantage.

Instead, the doctors use the PerioLase® MVP-7™ laser to target the harmful bacteria in the pockets of the gums without having to remove any of the healthy gum tissue.
