Recent studies have shown there’s a tremendous link between gum disease and gum health and an overall healthy body.
EL CAJON, Calif. (PRWEB) August 15, 2018
Drs. Lawrence Addleson, R. Douglas Campbell and David Landau of The Art of Dentistry dental practice are warning the general public about the elevated systemic health risks that come with untreated gum disease. To help new and current patients reduce their chances of problems related to the condition, the dentists offer modern laser gum therapy treatments with minimal discomfort and faster recovery times.
Gum disease affects almost half the population, according to figures from the U.S. Department’s Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). However, many people ignore its earliest warning signs including chronic bad breath, swollen gums, tender gums, red gums, and bleeding gums. Without immediate professional intervention, the bacteria that cause gum disease will continue to destroy the tissues, teeth and bone. Plus, the same bacteria may travel throughout the body causing systemic damage.
The American Academy of Periodontology has reported links on a variety of health problems and untreated, unmanaged gum disease. These include diabetes, heart disease and certain cancers. As Dr. Campbell explains, “Recent studies have shown there’s a tremendous link between gum disease and gum health and an overall healthy body.”
Laser gum therapy treatments allow The Art of Dentistry team to effectively treat gingivitis, the earliest form of gum disease, and more advanced stages of the condition including advanced periodontal disease. Because lasers provide incredible precision, they are preferred by patients who want immediate, accurate care they can depend on. Plus, patients who receive regular laser gum treatment care for their gum disease are able to statistically reduce their likelihood of increased risk for related systemic health issues.
Those experiencing gum disease symptoms like bad breath or bleeding gums in El Cajon, CA, are invited to contact The Art of Dentistry office in San Diego for an appointment at 619-291-4325. Self-referrals are welcome.
