One of the leading causes of tooth loss is gum disease. Also known as periodontal disease, this condition affects millions of people every year. And although the condition is entirely treatable, many people who suffer from this condition either ignore it or remain unaware of it until they see their dentist. Periodontal disease can occur for many reasons. However, people who have poor dental health and hygiene have a higher risk of developing the condition. To prevent more people from suffering from this condition, Dr. Dan Knellinger wants to educate his patients about the benefits of the LANAP® in Palm Harbor, FL.

Gum Disease Requires Treatment

Gum disease is not a condition that will resolve on its own. An early diagnosis is the best way to ensure that it can be reversed. To get rid of the infection, the diseased dental tissue and bacteria must be removed so that the gums can be repaired. Without immediate and proper treatment, people that suffer from gum disease are more likely to experience halitosis, gum recession and tooth loss.

LANAP® Treatment Benefits

Gum disease shouldn’t be the reason you are unable to enjoy a happy and healthy smile. Regardless of your age, there are treatment options available that can restore your smile’s structure and appearance. The LANAP® procedure offers gum disease sufferers an affordable and truly revolutionary alternative to scaling and root planning treatment to regain their dental health.
