Dr. William Greider strongly urges anyone who is suffering with gum disease in Fort Myers, FL, to take advantage of Gum Disease Awareness Month by receiving the treatment they need. If left untreated, gum disease can cause a variety of complications, including severe dental pain, receding gums and eventual tooth loss. Laser dentistry can help target and remove inflamed tissue while minimizing the patient’s blood loss, inflammation and recovery time.

Patients who have been thinking about receiving treatment for gum disease in Fort Myers, FL, are urged by Dr. Greider to schedule their treatment appointment during Gum Disease Awareness Month in February. During its beginning stages, periodontal disease commonly exhibits relatively mild symptoms such as bleeding when brushing, increased tooth sensitivity and bad breath. However, if the disease is given time to progress unchecked, more serious symptoms can develop, including severely receded gums, severe tooth pain and tooth loss. Studies have even shown a link between periodontal disease and certain types of cancers, heart disease and low birth weight babies.

Dr. Greider seeks to minimize patient anxiety of periodontal treatments by offering gentle, quick and efficient laser dentistry procedures as an alternative to scalpel-based treatment methods. Dr. Greider uses the LANAP® protocol to treat various areas of diseased gum tissue during the same office visit. Other gum disease procedures often require patients to split their treatments over several visits due to time constraints. Patients who receive laser-based treatment for their periodontal disease symptoms typically recover much quicker than patients who receive traditional treatment methods, with many patients returning to normal activities within just hours of their appointment.

Those who would like to take advantage of Gum Disease Awareness Month by seeking treatment for symptoms of their gum disease in Fort Myers, FL, are invited to set up an appointment with Dr. Greider right away. Laser dentistry appointments may be scheduled by calling Dr. Greider’s practice at (239) 494-5577 during regular operating hours.
