PerioWest is raising awareness of the systemic effects of gum disease in Eden Prairie, MN. At a time when health is at the forefront of everyone’s minds, experienced periodontist, Dr. Andres Sanchez, is impressing to his community that oral health plays a significant role on the health of the entire body. This compassionate periodontist is welcoming patients for industry leading periodontal care in Eden Prairie, MN with or without a referral. To help fight gum disease, Dr. Sanchez offers LANAP® laser dentistry, periodontal maintenance, and he can restore bone lost due to gum disease with bone grafting and dental implants.

A recent study from the ADA reveals that a majority of dentists are seeing a rise in stress-related oral health conditions since the coronavirus pandemic began. Conditions that are on the rise include gum disease, teeth grinding, and chipped and cracked teeth. Before the pandemic, extensive research showed a link between gum disease and systemic health conditions such as heart disease, respiratory disease, diabetes, and stroke.

Because of the connection between the state of the mouth and the health of the body, Dr. Sanchez is urging his community to seek oral health care at the onset of symptoms in order to keep their immune system strong and their whole body in optimum condition. Symptoms of gum disease include:

  • Bleeding gums while brushing or flossing
  • Red, swollen, or tender gums
  • Bad breath (halitosis)
  • Shifting teeth

When a patient suffers from gum disease, as a board-certified periodontist Dr. Sanchez can provide non-surgical scaling and root planing, osseous surgery, and periodontal maintenance. An early adopter of modern, minimally invasive, and effective alternatives, Dr. Sanchez also offers LANAP laser dentistry. With LANAP, Dr. Sanchez utilizes precision laser technology to eradicate bacteria from the periodontal pockets and remove unhealthy gum tissue. This procedure also regenerates the healthy gum tissue that remains, an advantage not achieved by traditional techniques.

LANAP is the only FDA-cleared laser gum disease treatment and it allows for a fast recovery and minimal loss of tooth and bone structure. When bone loss has already occurred as a side effect of gum disease, Dr. Sanchez can provide bone grafting to restore the jawbone and dental implants to replace missing teeth.

The entire team and PerioWest is passionate about the health of Eden Prairie, MN. They are working diligently to improve the oral health of their community while simultaneously keeping their office sanitized and safe to help stop the spread of COVID-19. PerioWest stays current with the pandemic guidelines recommended by the CDC, OSHA, and ADA.
