Denville, NJ (PRWEB) May 23, 2017
Drs. Adam and Hal Kimowitz are now accepting new patients suffering from periodontitis in Denville, NJ for gentle laser gum therapy, with or without a referral. Dedicated to patient education and modern care, Drs. Kimowitz are teaching their patients the benefits of laser dentistry as a minimally invasive gum surgery alternative as well as the importance of receiving prompt treatment. The doctors know that education is the first line of defense against gum disease, and hope to educate as many people as possible on how to overcome the condition.
Periodontitis is an advanced form of gum disease that affects over 64 million Americans, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The first stage of gum disease is known as gingivitis. It is characterized by swollen gums that may bleed during brushing and flossing. When left untreated, this infection can progress into periodontitis. At this stage, the supporting bones of the mouth that keep the teeth in place are irreversibly damaged. Pockets of infection form along the gum line, and may spread bacteria throughout the body through the blood. Laser dentistry is often one of the most effective and minimally invasive ways to stop the damage from spreading.
If periodontitis is not treated, it becomes advanced periodontitis. During this stage, the bone that support the teeth is weakened and the affected teeth may begin to loosen or fall out completely. Bite is often affected and many teeth may need to be removed. When a laser is used to treat the gum disease at any of its stages, it targets the bacteria causing the infection as well as the tissue it is affecting and eliminates them. Healthy tissue is left intact and may even help facilitate reattachment of the tissues. Depending on the stage at which treatment is received, the use of a laser may save some patients’ existing teeth.
