Dr. Scott A. Krosser of Millburn Dental Arts offers gum disease treatment to patients in the Millburn, NJ area, allowing these patients to potentially reduce the chance of suffering a stroke in a significant way. Since May is Stroke Awareness Month, Dr. Krosser is doing his part to make the public aware of the link between gum disease and the possibility of a stroke, as the American Stroke Association has noted that individuals with severe gum disease will suffer a stroke at a rate over four times higher than those with moderate gum disease or no gum disease at all. The presence of gum disease causes a number of potentially serious complications, and the possibility of a stroke is one of the most devastating, especially given the fact that even a minor stroke can result in life-altering consequences.
Dr. Krosser offers several gum disease treatment options to Millburn, NJ patients, including the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure, or LANAP®. This procedure is an alternative to traditional gum surgery methods that does not necessitate the use of a scalpel or sutures. LANAP® is also able to allow patients to avoid losing their healthy gum tissue, as the procedure is able to remove only the infected tissue and bacteria from the pockets in the gums. LANAP® is a minimally invasive and effective procedure, which may be more appealing to those who are concerned with the issues that gum disease causes, but are reluctant to pursue gum surgery that may be uncomfortable due to the use of scalpels and sutures.
There is an extremely high incidence of gum disease currently affecting adults in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), over 47 percent of American adults suffer from some form of gum disease, and many of those allow the gum disease to become more severe before seeking treatment. With the dangerous conditions that gum disease causes, the availability of a minimally invasive procedure such as LANAP® becomes especially important. By offering gum disease treatment, patients in Millburn, NJ now have an effective and minimally invasive option that may reduce the risk of having a stroke.
Parties who are interested in learning more about their treatment options can call the doctor’s office to schedule an appointment for consultation.
