NASHVILLE, Tenn., Dec. 30, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- In consideration of the decrease in proper oral health care amid the pandemic, Belle Meade Family Dentistry now offers state-of-the-art periodontal treatment using minimally invasive laser dentistry, with or without a referral in Nashville, TN. Dr. James Pace Sr., Dr. Temp Sullivan, and Dr. James Pace Jr. consider maintaining a strong immune system more important than ever during the COVID-19 pandemic. Research indicates people across the country have neglected seeking medical care due to the outbreak with an increasing number of untreated serious health conditions. Experts say this has resulted in devastating consequences, although these are harder to measure than that of the pandemic.
Gum recession, bleeding gums, loose teeth, and bad breath are common signs of periodontal disease. The WPT™ laser procedure has revolutionized the way the dentists at Belle Meade Family Dentistry treat patients with gum disease. Innovative laser dentistry enhances the ability to perform in-office treatments such as deep cleanings and scaling and root planing. Laser-assisted treatment offers more precision when removing diseased tissues and harmful bacteria. In the hands of the skilled dentists at this practice, laser dentistry enables shorter appointments and less pain while reducing the risk of gum disease progression and infection more effectively than traditional methods.
Left untreated, gum disease can have a negative impact on immune system health and lead to serious diseases. A number of studies link periodontal disease to systemic diseases including respiratory disease, heart disease, cognitive impairment, metabolic syndrome/diabetes, some types of cancer, and pregnancy complications.
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Belle Meade Family Dentistry implemented sanitation safety protocols recommended by the CDC to help prevent its spread and maintain the health of their patients and staff. They also limit the number of patients in the office at the same time.
For those who have noticed signs of gum disease, delaying treatment can cause cascading health effects. Rest assured, patient safety and comfort is the number one mission at Belle Meade Family Dentistry. To benefit from tomorrow's dentistry today, call 615-298-2030 to schedule an appointment.
