Mt. Pleasant, SC Dentist Removes Infection and Reveals the Oral and Overall Health Connection

MT. PLEASANT, S.C., July 14, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The team at Smiles by Hogan encourages patients with symptoms of gingivitis to seek LANAPA® gum disease treatment to boost their oral health and immune system amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Dr. Kevin Hogan, founding dentist of Smiles by Hogan in Mt. Pleasant, SC, raises awareness of the link between gum disease and a compromised immune system as well as the benefits of minimally invasive laser gum disease treatment.When gum tissue is healthy, it creates a protective barrier around teeth, keeping them stable in the bone and sealing out bacteria. The chronic inflammation of the gum tissues affected by gum disease breaks down this barrier as the infected gums pull away from the teeth. This infection and inflammation are caused by a buildup of bacterial plaque on the tooth surfaces and along the gumline. As gums become more infected, more bacteria accumulate in the deepening periodontal pockets around the teeth. These bacteria can travel through the bloodstream, aggravating systemic conditions like diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Additionally, untreated gum disease increases the risk of contracting dangerous viruses and diseases by compromising the health of the immune system. Patients experiencing symptoms of gingivitis, including tender gums that bleed easily, gum recession, persistent bad breath, and loose teeth, should seek treatment as soon as possible to protect their oral and physical health.Dr. Hogan has received advanced, hands-on training using the PerioLaseA® MVP-7a?? laser to perform LANAP and is highly experienced in this minimally invasive treatment for patients with moderate to advanced gum disease. The revolutionary protocol is the scalpel-free alternative to traditional osseous surgery and provides numerous advantages for patients, including less pain and bleeding, faster recovery with less risk for infection, cauterization at the treatment site, and regeneration of new gum tissue. Dr. Hogan compares patients' options for gum disease treatment: "Traditional periodontal surgery is with a scalpel. Suturing is involved and it can be painful post-operatively." Dr. Hogan continues, "Using the PerioLase MVP-7, the only FDA-cleared dental laser used for periodontal surgery, involves no cutting or post-op pain and you can virtually go back to work in the same day."
