Periodontal disease is more common than most people realize. In fact, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that up to 64.7 million adults currently have periodontal disease in its mild, moderate or advanced form. Many people unfortunately allow the disease to progress without treatment, which is an unwise decision that can have long-lasting consequences. It’s much better to seek laser gum treatment in Cary, NC as soon as you notice the first symptoms of gum disease. Receiving the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) treatments is one of the most effective ways to live and feel younger if you have periodontal disease.
Benefits of Restoring Gum Health
When gum tissue becomes infected with the bacteria that cause gum disease, overall health can suffer.
Research shows a surprising link between periodontal disease and heart disease, diabetes, stroke and other physical ailments. Additionally, periodontal disease itself has a variety of unpleasant and embarrassing symptoms that can diminish quality of life. These include:
· Chronic and severe bad breath
· Foul taste in the mouth
· Red, noticeably inflamed gums
· Tooth loss
· Frequent bleeding of the gum tissue
· Increased tooth sensitivity
· Receding gum line
Restoring gum health with laser gum treatment can not only minimize unpleasant symptoms and prevent the progression of periodontal disease, but improve quality of life as well.
