Although bleeding, red or receding gums may be common signs of gum disease, oftentimes, many patients in Shelton, CT are unaware of how much their condition has progressed. Regular cleanings from a dental professional are essential but if your gum disease has advanced passed gingivitis, the first stage, you may need a periodontal expert to step in. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to tooth loss, bone loss and systemic health effects such as high blood pressure and diabetes.
Many are wary of receiving the gum disease therapy they need because they think osseous surgery is the only solution. Fortunately, LANAP eliminates the need for invasive techniques and offers a solution that is even FDA-cleared for healthy tissue regeneration, promoting a faster recovery.
