VICKSBURG, Miss. (PRWEB) November 14, 2017

Dr. Kenneth Nash is an experienced dentist in Vicksburg, MS, who supports National Diabetes Month by raising awareness of the link between diabetes and gum disease. To help patients avoid further oral health and systemic health issues, Dr. Nash is now welcoming new patients without a referral for a variety of periodontal treatments, including gentle and effective laser gum therapy.

About three-quarters of adults in America have periodontal disease, many of which do not seek treatment. Some do not know they have the condition because the symptoms can be mild and may include chronic bad breath and red, swollen gums that bleed while brushing or eating certain foods. Unfortunately, untreated periodontal disease can eventually lead to more serious symptoms, including gum recession and tooth loss. When left untreated, bacteria in the gum tissue can spread throughout the body. Studies have shown a link between untreated gum disease and systemic diseases, including diabetes, stroke and heart disease.

As a leading dentist in Vicksburg, MS, Dr. Nash and his team offer minimally invasive laser dentistry solutions to treat gum disease. Laser gum therapy is also minimally painful, and it is capable of targeting inflamed gum tissue with remarkable precision. Laser gum treatment does not require sutures or scalpel incisions, offering shorter recovery times and a more comfortable patient experience. Patients who receive laser gum therapy typically recover faster than those who receive traditional gum surgery.

Dr. Nash encourages patients with swollen, bleeding gums and other common symptoms of gum disease to schedule an appointment for laser dentistry treatment. To arrange a consultation with the skilled dentist in Vicksburg, MS, patients are invited to call Nash Family Dentistry at 601-634-1812.
