Fremont, California (EastBayDaily) — Dr. Kaz Zymantas wants residents in need of dental implants in Naperville, IL to take advantage of October’s designation as National Dental Hygiene Month and make this the time that they get the gum disease treatment necessary in order to receive their implants. Through his use of the LANAP® protocol, a laser gum surgery, Dr. Zymantas can treat periodontitis with minimal discomfort and in less time than with other methods and create a healthy base of gum tissue for the acceptance of implants that otherwise would not be possible.
Early signs of gum disease include red, swollen, or even bleeding gums. These things may be minor irritations in the eyes of some patients but they are, in fact, warning signs of more serious problems to come. If periodontitis is allowed to progress without treatment, gums can recede and eventually cause teeth to be lost by reducing the amount of support they get from the jaw bone. This is one reason that many people end up needing dental implants in Naperville, IL. Teeth can also be lost for other reasons, such as trauma or severe decay. No matter the reason for the tooth loss, implants cannot be placed into a diseased environment.
Dental implants for Naperville, IL patients are the preferred method of tooth replacement because they root into the jaw like natural teeth and therefore offer stimulation to the jaw bone as tooth roots would do. This stimulation is critical because without it, the jaw bone eventually erodes in a process called resorption. People who have sunken appearances through their jaws and mouths have often experienced resorption. It can also lead to problems with eating and talking correctly. Gum disease prevention can start at home with a strong commitment to consistent brushing and flossing. When periodontitis does develop, seeking treatment as soon as possible is advised in order to guard against further problems.
National Dental Hygiene Month is the perfect time to renew a commitment to taking care of teeth and gums at home and seeking help with periodontal infection and tooth replacement as these conditions appear. Patients are encouraged to contact Dr. Zymantas this October as a first step toward achieving a healthy smile and healthy body.
