Ormond Beach, FL (PRWEB) February 26, 2015
Dr. Raymond Kenzik is recognizing Gum Disease Awareness Month by encouraging patients with gum disease in Ormond Beach, FL to get the condition under control by scheduling an appointment with his practice. Dr. Kenzik offers a minimally invasive treatment option called the LANAP® protocol to patients who are suffering with gum disease and its symptoms.
Gum disease patients in Ormond Beach, FL who want to improve their oral health in honor of Gum Disease Awareness Month are invited to learn more about the various treatment options available to them, including the LANAP® protocol. This relatively new treatment option involves the use of an FDA-cleared laser that is specifically designed to locate and remove infected gum tissue with accurate pulses of light. Because periodontal professionals who use this laser can remove infected tissue while leaving healthy tissue unaffected, patients experience rapid recovery.
Recent studies show that gum disease is connected to the development of many other types of diseases, including diabetes and heart disease. Individuals who want to reduce their chances of developing several different types of health conditions should not underestimate the importance of promptly treating their gum disease symptoms. Gum disease can often be prevented by following a rigorous dental hygiene regimen that includes regular flossing and brushing. However, once gum disease has established itself in the mouth, more aggressive treatment is needed to remove the affected gum tissue.
The LANAP® protocol is highly effective at treating gum disease without causing excessive bleeding or requiring the use of sutures to seal the area. After the laser has successfully removed bacteria and inflamed gum tissue, it is then used to seal the area off from further infection by cauterizing it. This method heals quicker than cut-and-stitch surgery and minimizes the risk of post-operative infections.
Patients with gum disease in Ormond Beach, FL are invited to celebrate Gum Disease Awareness Month and improve their oral health by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Kenzik to find out more about the LANAP® protocol.
