Most people are not aware of the damaging effects of advanced periodontal disease, nor are they aware of how easy it is to prevent and now treat, with laser gum surgery in Chapel Hill and Apex.
Recent studies have found a reciprocal link between gum disease and other medical conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease, and certain types of cancer. Oral health is closely tied to overall health and any symptoms of periodontal disease should be
assessed by our periodontist in Chapel Hill and Apex, NC.
Symptoms of gum disease in early stages include inflammation and bleeding of the gums when you brush or floss. As the infection progresses, your gums form pockets that allow access to the bacteria and plaque, which causes gum recession and should be treated by our periodontist in Chapel Hill and Apex, NC.
In advanced cases, periodontal disease results in loss of tooth and bone. These effects, however, can be reversed with laser gum surgery in Chapel Hill and Apex.
