Franklin Square, NY (PRWEB) October 13, 2016
In honor of Dental Hygiene Month during October, Drs. Michael Kelley, Ramin Rayhan and Richard Nejat, at Clock Tower Dental Associates, are raising awareness about the health risks of periodontal disease and now accepting new patients with gum disease in Franklin Square, NY without a referral. Studies have linked gum disease to various systemic health issues, in addition to local conditions such as tooth loss. Fortunately, the Clock Tower Dental team can help patients avoid many of these outcomes by treating gum disease with leading laser dentistry techniques.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reported in 2012 that over 47 percent of adults over age 30 suffer from periodontal disease, as do over 70 percent of adults over age 65. Studies have also shown that these people are more likely to develop various chronic conditions, including heart disease, stroke, diabetes, kidney disease and certain cancers. Drs. Kelley, Rayhan and Nejat remind patients that seeking gum disease treatment may help protect their general well-being as well as their oral health.
Drs. Kelley, Rayhan and Nejat reduce the risk that patients will experience systemic health problems and local issues, such as tooth loosening and decay, using the LANAP® protocol. This laser dentistry procedure enables the doctors to target gum disease without scalpels or sutures. With this gum disease treatment in Franklin Square, NY, the doctors can exclusively target diseased tissue while leaving healthy gum tissue untouched. The LANAP® protocol also promotes healthier long-term outcomes by stimulating regeneration in the bone that supports the teeth. By helping the gums attach more securely to the teeth and reducing gum pocket depth, this procedure can lower the risk of future periodontal infections.
Those who wish to learn more about the LANAP® protocol and the benefits of laser dentistry are encouraged to visit the website of Clock Tower Dental Associates at http://www.clocktower-dental.com.
