Dentist emphasizes importance of fighting gum disease
Updated: 7/29/2011 11:00:16 AM

Dentist emphasizes importance of fighting gum disease Dr. Jerry Strauss, a dentist practicing in Fairfield, New Jersey, works to combat the constant presence of gum disease - formally referred to as periodontal disease - in a large number of Americans. He employs various sophisticated tools and treatments in the hopes of maintaining the oral health of his patients.

Gum disease has become commonplace enough that some may underestimate its dangers. Strauss warns against such beliefs, stating that the dental condition can contribute to certain health problems outside of the teeth and gums. Among these are cardiovascular disease, kidney disease and even strokes.

Strauss often utilizes the tools of laser dentistry when treating patients with gum disease, along with several other advancements in oral equipment. The experts said that the use of lasers in surgeries that aim to correct periodontal disease allows patients less pain during the procedure and noticeably reduces post-operative recovery time.

"Using laser therapy in the treatment of periodontal disease is more conservative than conventional surgery, less invasive, and the results are outstanding," Strauss said.

The American Dental Association emphasizes the importance of regular dental check-ups and periodontal examinations to help minimize the chances of developing gum disease. Once the disease has developed, treatment methods will vary based on the severity and specific attributes of the disease.
