Using lasers, top dentistry professionals like Dr. Cotey can remove the barriers to good health comfortably, efficiently and effectively.
Mt. Horeb, WI (PRWEB) May 14, 2018
Respected general dentist in Mt. Horeb, WI, Dr. Angela Cotey has recently completed an intensive laser dentistry course as part of her continuing education (CE) training. By advancing her knowledge in this arena, Dr. Cotey hopes to enhance her skills in detecting and treating early signs of periodontal disease in order to prevent problems associated with gum and jaw bone deterioration.
A proponent of laser advancements, Dr. Cotey regularly sees patients suffering from many of the warning signs of gum disease. The earliest form of gum disease, gingivitis, can be cured using laser dentistry techniques, a “gold standard” in top-level dental care. However, if gingivitis has progressed to more moderate and advanced periodontal disease, it moves to a chronic, incurable state. At that point, laser dentistry can still be used to manage problems.
Typical first indicators of gingivitis, which is caused from a build-up of bacteria between the teeth and gums deep in the periodontal pockets, are often overlooked. They include bleeding gums, red gums, swollen gums, bad breath and tender gums. Dr. Cotey encourages anyone experiencing these symptoms to take immediate action. Without immediate, leading care and intervention, gingivitis will inevitably become more pervasive.
Studies have shown significant correlations between gum disease and systemic issues such as heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Using lasers, top dentistry professionals like Dr. Cotey can remove the barriers to good health comfortably, efficiently and effectively. In fact, when lasers are employed during gingival treatments, the success rates improve considerably for patients.
