DIAMOND BAR, Calif., March 15, 2021 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Periodontist, Dr. Jin Kim of Diamond Bar, CA and West Garden Grove, CA, is celebrating Gum Disease Awareness Month by educating patients on the power of gum disease prevention and advanced periodontal disease treatments. One of the most common dental problems among adults of every age, gum disease leads to soft tissue, bone and tooth loss if not treated. Dr. Kim offers a variety of gum disease treatments, including minimally invasive LANAP® laser dentistry.
The underlying cause of gum disease is a build-up of bacteria in the gums. As the bacteria grows, it attacks healthy gums. However, many of the earliest warning signs of gum disease go unmentioned when patients visit a dental professional. These symptoms may include bleeding gums, swollen gums, bad breath or receding gums. If left untreated, gum disease can affect other parts of the body and increase patient risk of heart attack, stroke, certain cancers and problems related to diabetes.
As a dual board-certified periodontist by the American Board of Periodontology and the American Board of Oral Implantology/Implant Dentistry, Dr. Kim employs the latest treatment methods to address gingivitis and periodontitis in patients of all ages. His practice offers minimally invasive LANAP, which uses gentle laser light for precision outcomes and patient comfort. He also offers advanced osseous surgery. To help individuals suffering from dental anxiety, Dr. Kim provides a variety of dental sedation options.
To increase patient-doctor communication, Dr. Kim consistently explains every treatment with the people he serves. "He's been awesome," says Oscar, a patient of Dr. Kim. "He talks to me like a human being and he always explains what's going on with the procedures."
