Houston, TX (PRWEB) April 15, 2016
Patients with gum disease in Houston, TX, can now receive nonsurgical treatment using a perioscope at Dr. Robert Friedberg’s office. Those searching for a qualified periodontist to treat periodontal disease in a minimally invasive way are invited to schedule an appointment at Dr. Friedberg’s practice.
Periodontal disease is a very common oral condition that is estimated to affect approximately 75 percent of Americans. When treatment is not sought for the condition, it can lead to severe pain, receding gums, and even tooth loss. Some studies show a connection between periodontal disease and other serious health complications including heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. Individuals who suspect that they have gum disease in Houston, TX, are encouraged to see Dr. Friedberg, who is a trusted periodontist in the Houston area.
While gum disease is commonly treated with surgical procedures, Dr. Friedberg offers a nonsurgical treatment alternative to those who qualify. With the use of a specialized periodontal tool called a perioscope, Dr. Friedberg carefully cleans periodontal pockets and reduces the overgrowth of bacteria in the gums. In many cases, perioscope treatment effectively reduces the need for surgery in patients with gum disease. During the perioscope procedure, ultrasonic instruments and magnification are utilized to target infected tissue and thoroughly clean it to remove bacteria. Periodontal professionals who use this type of treatment are required to be thoroughly trained by the manufacturer of the device to ensure they understand how to operate it safely and effectively.
Individuals who suspect that they have gum disease in Houston, TX, or who have a family history of the condition are encouraged to see their periodontist. Dr. Friedberg welcomes all patients who would like to pursue a form of treatment that is minimally invasive and may reduce their chances of requiring surgery. Appointments with Dr. Friedberg may be scheduled by calling his practice at (866) 906-3255.
