Ormond Beach, FL (PRWEB) February 13, 2014
Dr. Raymond A. Kenzik is a leading Florida periodontist who offers the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) for patients who are seeking minimally-invasive periodontal treatment. Since February is American Heart Month, Dr. Kenzik encourages dental patients to learn as much as they can about the connection between gum disease and heart disease so that they can take steps to prevent both.
Each year, millions of Americans suffer from the symptoms of gum disease, but only a small percentage of those Americans actually seek professional treatment for the disease. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to other health complications that may include heart disease, diabetes, low birth-weight babies, and pancreatic cancer. Because February is American Heart Month, all Ormond Beach residents who are suffering from gum disease symptoms are urged to learn more about gum disease and heart disease and receive periodontal treatment by scheduling an appointment with Dr. Kenzik’s office.
Dr. Kenzik uses the revolutionary LANAP® to remove diseased gum tissue from the patients who are affected by periodontal disease. The procedure is less invasive than traditional scalpel procedures and may produce more effective long-term results. Patients who are fearful of the pain and extensive recovery time associated with traditional scalpel and suture gum disease treatments are encouraged to find out more about the minimally-invasive LANAP® alternative.
In honor of American Heart Month, Dr. Kenzik has committed himself to educating dental patients about the proven link between gum disease and heart disease and how to seek appropriate treatment options. Patients who are concerned about their general health are invited to call Dr. Kenzik’s office today and schedule a periodontal evaluation.
