Share Article

February is Gum Disease Awareness Month, and Dr. Leo Kituskie seeks to raise awareness by educating patients on the dangerous link between untreated periodontal disease and other serious conditions. Gum disease patients in Wilmington, DE are urged to find out as much as they can about available treatment options, including the LANAP® protocol, before they develop related conditions such as heart disease and diabetes.

In honor of Gum Disease Awareness Month, Dr. Leo Kituskie encourages all patients who may have gum disease in Wilmington, DE, to schedule a LANAP® protocol consultation by calling his practice. Untreated gum disease affects so much more than just oral health, and has been shown in studies to have a relationship with other harmful conditions, including diabetes and pancreatic cancer.

Millions of Americans suffer from the various symptoms associated with gum disease, but not all of them seek treatment. Some patients may be wary of the pain, bleeding and lengthy recovery period associated with traditional treatment options, while others may underestimate the seriousness of the disease. Patients with gum disease in Wilmington, DE should be aware that gum disease is much more than simply a minor inconvenience. Although beginning symptoms of the disease are often benign and include redness and tenderness in the gums, more troubling symptoms can occur if the disease is left to progress.

Symptoms of moderate to advanced gum disease include chronic halitosis, bleeding while brushing, receding gums, tooth loss and significant gum discomfort. Additionally, studies have shown a troubling link between untreated gum disease and pre-term babies, diabetes and other health conditions. The LANAP® protocol is a preferred treatment option for the various stages of gum disease because it is highly accurate, does not require stitches and causes minimal bleeding of the post-surgical site.

Patients can do much to ward off symptoms of periodontal disease by brushing and flossing regularly, but if they already have an advanced stage of the disease they should seek treatment as quickly as possible. Individuals who are worried about excessive bleeding and other possible complications of traditional scalpel surgery are encouraged to find out if they are good candidates for the LANAP® protocol.

Residents of Wilmington, DE with gum disease are invited to take advantage of Gum Disease Awareness Month by seeking treatment for their gum disease symptoms and taking responsibility for their oral and overall health. A LANAP® protocol consultation may be scheduled by calling Dr. Kituskie’s practice.
