As we all know, proper dental hygiene is imperative to the overall health of our mouth and teeth. While simple daily hygiene steps such as brushing and flossing may not be your top priority, you might want to rethink and repostition your priorities. Nowadays, 3 out of 4, or 75% of Americans suffer from gum disease. The most obvious and common signs that you have gum disease are: bad breath and bleeding gums. Regular brushing and flossing can help prevent gum disease. If left untreated, your teeth and gums will eventuallly decay, causing your teeth to fall out. Gum disease has now become the #1 reason people lose their teeth.
Gum disease will not only cause your teeth to fall out, it has also now been linked to:
- Heart Disease
- Premature Births
One of the most effective and modern procedures to treat gum disease is LANAP, Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure. This procedure is the ONLY FDA cleared laser procedure for treating gum disease. There is no cutting or stitching with this procedure so you can expect quick recovery and little to no pain.
