As an experienced dentist in Mount Pleasant, SC, Dr. Hogan is proud to claim the honor of speaking on important topics such as gum disease at the American University of Antigua Medical School. Dr. Hogan has also lectured at the University of North Carolina, Emory University and Saginaw Valley University and enjoys teaching other dental professionals how to recognize and prevent common oral diseases and infections. With his extensive knowledge of oral cavity anatomy, Dr. Hogan is well equipped to offer preventative care to patients who would like to avoid developing conditions such as periodontal disease and tooth decay.
Individuals who have periodontal disease do not always realize symptoms of the condition. Common indications of periodontal disease include chronic bad breath, loose teeth, a change in how teeth fit together, as well as excessive bleeding while brushing. Periodontal disease symptoms can be mild and difficult to spot at first, but will eventually become more agitating and noticeable if they are not promptly treated. Some individuals may also experience gum recession, tooth sensitivity and even tooth loss due to periodontal disease. Patients who wish to avoid these embarrassing and painful symptoms are encouraged to receive treatment as soon as possible. If patients receive regular dental checkups, it is likely that their periodontal disease symptoms will be caught and treated early on. Dr. Hogan checks for these symptoms at his Mount Pleasant, SC dental practice and uses the LANAP® protocol to treat gum disease. This gentle laser gum therapy technique eliminates diseased gum tissue with minimal pain or bleeding and is the only FDA cleared procedure that treats periodontal disease.
New research suggests that dental infections may also be implicated in hardening of the arteries, heart attack, stroke, and pre-term births. Those who are looking for a highly qualified dentist in Mount Pleasant, SC who can treat their gum disease symptoms with the gentle LANAP® protocol, are invited to visit Dr. Hogan’s practice. Dr. Hogan is familiar with the intricacies of oral cavity health and has the expertise necessary to identify and treat a variety of oral infections and diseases.
