Bradenton, FL (PRWEB) July 07, 2020
Eastman Periodontics and Implants announce their new safety measures amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Founder Dr. Lindsay Eastman, along with his associates, Drs. Christie Eastman-Craighead and Justin Craighead, welcome existing and new patients in the Sarasota, Bradenton, and Lakewood Ranch areas to receive high-quality and trusted dental care in comfort. As skilled periodontists, they also warn their community of the harmful effects untreated dental conditions like gum disease can have on overall health, and advise patients to seek treatment as soon as symptoms arise.
Persistent bad breath, sensitive teeth, and bleeding, swollen, or receding gums are all common signs of gum disease. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) nearly 50 percent of adult Americans have some form of gum disease. With decades of experience as gum disease specialists, the clinicians at Eastman Periodontics and Implants have seen first-hand how this disease can have a negative effect on not only oral health but systemic health as well.
Gum disease is caused by an infection of the gums. If left untreated, disease-causing bacteria have been shown to spread throughout the body leading to chronic inflammation, a strained immune system, and systemic conditions including cardiovascular disease.
In order to protect their patients and community’s health, they encourage those showing signs of gum disease, and any other dental concerns, to receive the care they need before the condition worsens. Striving to not only offer a comfortable environment for patients but one that limits the spread of the novel coronavirus, Eastman Periodontics and Implants has implemented additional safety guidelines since they reopened. These safety measures include the following:
- Staff members will wear personal protection equipment (PPE) at all times when with patients
- Virtual treatment discussions are available to reduce the number of in-office visits
- Patients call before arriving, limiting the number of visitors in the reception area
- A/C units have received upgrades including air scrubbers to improve air quality
- Air purification systems by Air Oasis® with PECOS technology are active throughout the office
- Cutting-edge aerosol reduction systems are used including the Purevac® HVE System and Ivory® ReLeaf™
- Patient rooms are disinfected before and after each visit using EPA-approved chemicals
Eastman Periodontics and Implants has been serving Bradenton, Lakewood Ranch, and surrounding communities for over 35 years.
