Greenville, NC (PRWEB) May 18, 2017
The doctors at Capps, Bowman, Padgett and Associates raise awareness of the relationship between gum disease and stroke during Stroke Awareness Month. Patients who have gum disease in Greenville, NC, are encouraged to seek qualified treatment and lower their risk of suffering from other systemic health conditions. Drs. Robert Capps, Mark Bowman, Jamison Padgett and John Hoggard offer minimally invasive laser gum therapy, the LANAP® protocol, at their practice.
According to a recent report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 47.2 percent of adults in the United States who are aged 30 and over have some form of periodontal disease. Many are unaware that they have the disease, or consider it a relatively harmless oral condition. Studies show that when left untreated, periodontal disease can raise a person’s risk of developing other systemic diseases and conditions, including heart disease, certain types of cancer, diabetes and stroke. Drs. Capps, Bowman, Padgett and Hoggard encourage patients who think they may have gum disease in Greenville, NC, to receive a diagnosis and treatment from a trusted dental professional as quickly as possible.
Drs. Capps, Bowman, Padgett and Hoggard utilize the effective LANAP protocol to treat gum disease. This laser-based treatment minimizes bleeding and helps patients feel less discomfort while undergoing treatment. It also reduces the risk of gum recession and has been shown to reduce recovery time when compared to treatments that remove gum tissue with sutures and scalpels. In addition to these benefits, the LANAP protocol is also known to target only diseased tissue without causing harm to healthy gum tissue surrounding the treatment location.
Patients who have common symptoms of gum disease in Greenville, NC, including bleeding gums, sensitive teeth and chronic bad breath, are encouraged to call Capps, Bowman, Padgett and Associates at 252-360-1855 to schedule a consultation. When gum disease is caught and treated early, the risk of developing other systemic problems such as heart disease or stroke can be reduced.
