Non-Surgical Gum Disease Therapy for Mt. Pleasant Patients

Introduction

Often, when we talk about oral health, all we focus on is the health of teeth, when really, gum health is just as important. That’s because gum disease is a prevalent condition. It’s been estimated that 80% of American adults have some form of gum disease. What’s more, gum disease is known to have an effect on not just oral health but on overall wellbeing too. Health conditions as divergent as heart disease, Alzheimer’s, stroke, diabetes, and pregnancy complications have all been connected to gum disease.

Non-Surgical Gum Disease Therapy for Mt. Pleasant Patients

But as destructive as gum disease is, treatment is possible with gum disease therapy if the condition is caught early. For mild cases, spending more time at the bathroom sink may be all that’s needed. For more serious cases, Dr. Kevin Hogan and his team at Smiles by Hogan in Mount Pleasant, SC can provide non-surgical care with scaling and root-planing. Through scaling and root-planing, Dr. Hogan can discourage bacteria from taking root again and causing trouble. Dr. Hogan also offer the latest technology in minimally invasive Laser Gum Therapy from LANAP®.

How Can I Know If I Have Gum Disease

The symptoms of gum disease include bleeding gums, tenderness in the gums, and a bad taste in your mouth not caused by food or a drink. Another common sign is bad breath. If you’ve been experiencing any of these, you may need help with gum disease therapy.
