Calculus deposits harbor bacteria which infect the gums. In early stages, this is called Gingivitis, characterized by red, swollen gums that bleed when you brush your teeth. Many people experience bad breath and an unpleasant taste in their mouths as well. Unchecked, Gingivitis progresses to Periodontitis, a much more serious form of the disease where periodontal pockets are formed, separating teeth from the gums and supporting bone structure. Without treatment, infection becomes severe and the pockets deepen, resulting in tooth loss.
There is a New Gentle Alternative to Conventional Gum Surgery
Gum disease is a silent, painless, chronic, communicable, bacterial infection that often goes undetected or ignored until severe gum and bone destruction catch the individual's attention. Traditional treatments for gum disease have, until Laser-ANAP, been perceived as painful with a long and uncomfortable recovery, scaring patients away and causing the epidemic numbers suffering with this preventable and now attractively treatable disease.
50 people out of 100 have moderate to severe gum disease, 40 out of the 50 don't know it, and only 3 people out of 100 will ever get treated before it's too late.
The way to repair the damage is to get rid of the infection and close up the pockets. Until now, that meant surgery and sutures. Dr. Brogdon now uses Laser-ANAP, a patient-friendly, minimally-invasive procedure that’s a great improvement over standard gum surgery
