West Covina, CA (PRWEB) April 16, 2020
Dr. Jin Kim, dual board-certified periodontist and implant surgeon, is offering patients with gum disease in West Covina, CA the only FDA-cleared laser treatment for gum disease, LANAP®. This solution is one of the most gentle, minimally invasive and effective solutions to cleansing disease from the mouth. As a periodontist, Dr. Kim offers a more detailed and experienced approach to treatment for gum disease in West Covina, CA. He also understands the effect gum disease can have on patients’ oral health and overall health.
LANAP is a revolutionary approach to treatment for patients suffering from gum disease thanks to its “no cut, no sew, no fear” approach. Traditional gum disease surgery involves removing infected tissue with scalpels, scraping away bacteria and tartar and suturing the gums around the teeth. With LANAP, there are no scalpels or sutures and the procedure boasts minimal bleeding with virtually no discomfort. The entire procedure involves a gentle laser light to evaporate infection and diseased tissue. No cutting of healthy tissue is involved and with no sutures, most patients can feel like themselves again just a day after surgery.
Gum disease is a common condition that affects nearly half of the adult population in the United States. The disease affects both the hard and soft tissues of the mouth and is one of the leading causes of bleeding gums, loose teeth and bad breath. Common symptoms of gum disease include:
- Bleeding gums with brushing or flossing
- Loose or shifting teeth
- Gum recession
- Constant bad breath
- Red, puffy gums
Without timely treatment, gum disease can advance and eventually cause tooth loss and jawbone deterioration. Since oral health has been connected to overall health, if gum disease is left untreated it can also lead to systemic health conditions like heart disease, stroke, and a weakened immune system.
Periodontists are leaders in treatments for gum disease, as they have spent extra years studying and practicing treatment on the hard and soft tissues of the mouth. Dr. Kim is a board-certified periodontist, meaning that he not only spent the extra years studying periodontology, but he proved his expertise by passing a comprehensive board exam. Receiving gum disease treatment from a board-certified periodontist means that patients can rest at ease knowing their health and comfort is in the hands of one of the leading professionals in the field. This expertise in periodontology has led to Dr. Kim being a world-renown lecturer on gum disease and all aspects of the hard and soft tissues of the mouth.
