Enfield, Connecticut (PRWEB) August 04, 2014
Dr. Rashmi Patel has announced that his Connecticut dental practice, Enfield Family Dental, is now able to offer a number of new and advanced treatment options for addressing the incidence of periodontal disease. The doctor has noted that periodontal disease is a very common issue among patients that has been linked to a number of significant and serious medical conditions if left untreated. The fact that many patients delay seeking treatment has led Dr. Patel and his staff to explore new treatment options that are more comfortable and less invasive for patients.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the incidence of periodontal disease is quite high across the United States, with nearly half (47.1 percent) of the adult population suffering from some form of the disease. Unfortunately, many of these individuals do not seek out treatment in an expedient manner, which may lead to other complications. In a number of recent publications, periodontal disease has been linked in some way to serious medical issues such as cardiovascular disease and cancer. Due to these concerns, Dr. Patel strongly urges patients suffering from periodontal disease to seek treatment as soon as possible.
One of the ways in which Dr. Patel and his staff feel that they can assist in reducing the number of individuals suffering from periodontal disease is through the availability of a wide variety of effective treatment options that may be considered minimally invasive. The procedures available from Enfield Family Dental range from simple cleaning methods such as scaling to more advanced procedures such as gum grafting. The procedure that is ultimately selected will depend on the severity of the infection and the advancement of the periodontal disease.
Individuals who are interested in addressing their periodontal disease issues should call the office of Enfield Family Dental at their earliest convenience to schedule an appointment for consultation. Dr. Patel will then be able to meet with the patient to discuss the many treatment options that may be available and to determine the best course of action depending on the individual needs of the patient.
