Advanced Periodontics in Monroe, CT Implements Advanced Safety Measures Amid-COVID-19

The periodontists at Advanced Periodontics are seeing a rise in oral health issues, including infection, inflammation, and new or worsening gum disease, because patients are delaying oral health care due to the pandemic.

The periodontists and staff at Advanced Periodontics and Dental Implant Center of Connecticut have implemented strict measures in response to the coronavirus pandemic to assure their patients feel comfortable getting necessary oral health care. Compassionate periodontists in Monroe, CT, Drs. Richard Amato, Michael Kang, and John Thomas, treat gum disease, receding gums, and missing teeth using some of the most minimally invasive, industry leading techniques available.

When gum disease exists for an extended period of time without treatment, the bacteria in the gums can eventually spread throughout the body. Consequentially, research shows that gum disease can be linked with systemic health issues such as respiratory disease, heart disease, diabetes, and stroke.

The periodontists at Advanced Periodontics are seeing a rise in oral health issues, including infection, inflammation, and new or worsening gum disease, because patients are delaying oral health care due to the pandemic. These issues are not just affecting their patients’ mouths, but are causing harm to the body as a whole. With coronavirus cases on the rise again, Drs. Amato, Kang, and Thomas are concerned that their patients will not seek necessary oral health treatment, causing a severe impact on their overall health.

Advanced Periodontics and Dental Implant Center of Connecticut is taking measurable action to help keep patients and staff healthy during the coronavirus pandemic. They have installed an office-wide, permanent, bipolar air purification system that is integrated into the ventilation system. Additionally, they have three air purifiers placed throughout the office, invisible barriers to separate the office staff from the patients when possible, and touchless payments. They also keep up to date with recommendations from the CDC, ADA, and OSHA.

When a patient arrives at Advanced Periodontics, they can expect extended appointment times. This allows patients to receive all of their needed treatment at once, lessening the number of visits to the office. The waiting room has been eliminated, so patients can sit in their car until their freshly sanitized room is ready. Temperatures are taken at the door, and when patients check out, they can do so with touchless payments.

For those suffering from gum disease, the periodontists at Advanced Periodontics offer minimally invasive LANAP® laser dentistry, as well as the Chao Pinhole® Surgical Technique to help fight gum recession. These treatments not only remove gum disease, but they regenerate healthy gum tissue, leaving a strong and healthy gum line. When gum disease results in tooth decay or tooth loss, these experienced periodontists can provide permanent, secure dental implants in just one appointment. Dental implants look and function just like natural teeth, giving patients the confidence of a healthy smile and the ability to eat a balanced diet again.
