Round Rock, TX (PRWEB) December 18, 2014
Round Rock, TX patients who are suffering from gum disease symptoms can now visit Drs. David Baker and Angela Burns of Westlake Family Dental Care for treatment. Drs. Baker and Burns are currently accepting new patients without a referral. They offer the LANAP® protocol, a revolutionary laser treatment that targets and destroys the bacteria that causes periodontal disease. Gum disease often begins slowly and many patients do not recognize that they have a problem until their gums become red, swollen and bleeding, as seen in the beginning stages of the infection commonly known as gingivitis. If the condition continues without treatment, severe periodontal disease can lead to loss of teeth, bone loss in the jaw, changes in the structure and appearance of the face, speech difficulties, and an increased likelihood of suffering from many serious medical conditions.
To keep periodontal disease at bay, patients must employ good oral hygiene. If a Round Rock individual is not as dedicated to oral health as they could be, early gum disease symptoms can be managed and overcome with treatment and a renewed dedication to proper hygiene practices. If periodontitis develops, patients can still find relief through the LANAP® protocol. This laser treatment is not only safe and effective, it is a great alternative to traditional gum surgery. Many patients put off seeing a dentist for fear of having to undergo painful procedures. However, the LANAP® protocol results in less pain and discomfort than other options because there is no cutting or suturing of the gums. The laser, the PerioLase®MVP-7™, is specifically calibrated to destroy only diseased gum tissue, leaving healthy tissue to reattach to the gums and heal.
Other benefits of the laser treatment include little to no gum recession, which is a common side effect of traditional gum surgery. Patients also see a dramatically shorter healing time. Many patients are able to return to their normal routine the same day they receive the treatment. Using this simple procedure, Dr. Baker and Dr. Burns have helped countless individuals regain their smiles and self-confidence. Round Rock patients who are tired of dealing with gum disease symptoms and who would like more information can contact Dr. Baker and Dr. Burn’s office to schedule an appointment.
