Charleston, SC (PRWEB) January 24, 2017
Dr. Kevin Hogan, a general and cosmetic dentist, is pleased to announce that patients can now receive treatment for their gum disease in Charleston, SC, with or without a referral. Dr. Hogan has opened his Mt. Pleasant practice to patients who may benefit from the LANAP® protocol, a laser dentistry procedure that targets infection without harming healthy tissue. The procedure is frequently preferred by dental professionals and patients for its numerous benefits over traditional gum surgery.
Gum disease is a serious issue in Charleston, SC and around the nation. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than half of the U.S. population suffer from some form of gum disease. A major contributing factor to this high figure is that many people may fear gum disease treatment more than they fear the condition itself. This is because traditional gum surgery is invasive and involves a long, sometimes painful, recovery. With laser dentistry, however, many of these side effects are eliminated. Because Dr. Hogan uses a soft tissue laser to complete the treatment instead of a scalpel, patients experience less bleeding, less pain and less post-operative swelling.
With the LANAP® protocol, patients do not have to endure stitches, long recovery times or multiple visits to the dentist’s office. Instead, the procedure can be completed in as little as one or two appointments, depending on the needs of the patient. Many patients return to their normal activities and routines in very little time. This is because while the laser vaporizes infected tissue, it also promotes healing.
Those interested in using gentle, cutting-edge laser dentistry to treat their gum disease in Charleston, SC are invited to contact Dr. Hogan’s practice for more information by calling 843-639-5921.
