Nash Family Dentistry team, Drs. Jonathan Nash and Kenneth Nash, are honoring National Gum Care Month to educate their patients and the general public on the value of treating gum disease in Vicksburg, MS, via advanced equipment and procedures. Not only do Drs. Nash have extensive training in helping those with periodontal disease, but they have adopted the latest protocols including minimally invasive laser dentistry techniques.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately half the population in the United States has some form of periodontal disease. This means that in a city like Vicksburg, which has around 23,000 residents, no fewer than around 11,000 are likely to experience gum disease at some point in their lives.
Gum disease is a progressive condition whereby bacteria builds up in the periodontal pockets and eventually destroys healthy gingiva, tooth and bone. Without proper intervention, gum disease naturally leads to tooth loss and bone loss. However, this common problem can be managed with regular treatments by a highly trained dental provider.
At Nash Family Dentistry, Drs. Nash regularly help patients with gum disease in Vicksburg, MS, through laser dentistry techniques. The use of lasers in the dental field has significantly reduced risks associated with bleeding and lengthy appointments. In addition, lasers have increased patient results due to better precision, minimized recovery time and reduced site swelling. Plus, many patients who undergo laser dentistry appointments are able to avoid the use of anesthesia.
Those interested in getting an evaluation for diagnosed or suspected gum disease in Vicksburg, MS, can call the Nash Family Dentistry office at 601-634-1812. Both dentists offer a litany of safe, reliable laser dentistry services to patients, including correcting “gummy” smiles and contouring gums.
