LN Periodontics Promotes Diabetes Awareness Month and its Connection to Gum Disease in Louisville, KY
Date:11/25/2013

Louisville, KY (PRWEB) November 25, 2013

During National Diabetes Awareness Month, LN Periodontics is encouraging diabetics in Louisville to receive a checkup and subsequent gum disease treatment by scheduling an appointment. Diabetics are more at-risk for experiencing gum disease side effects because their high blood sugar levels make them more susceptible to all types of infections, including infections of the gums. Left untreated, minor gum infections may progress into full-fledged gum disease that should optimally be treated by a professional. LN Periodontics utilizes several different procedures to help restore gums to their healthy state and replace any missing or damaged teeth that are the result of the advanced stages of gum disease.

Just as high blood sugar levels from diabetes can lead to periodontal disease, periodontal disease also impacts blood sugar levels and can cause diabetes to progress and worsen. Because the two diseases have such a strong negative correlation to each other, it is highly advised that they both be treated properly at the same time. Failure to treat both diseases at once might make it impossible to effectively treat one or the other. Patients in Louisville who simultaneously undergo gum disease treatment and diabetes treatment can significantly decrease gum disease side effects and experience relief from their symptoms.

LN Periodontics utilizes trusted and cutting edge technology to treat periodontal disease while concurrently helping diabetic patients take control of blood sugar levels and thus break the cyclical trend between diabetes and gum disease. Treatment options for diabetics who suffer from gum disease include the Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP), gingivectomy, gum grafting, and dental implants to replace lost teeth. The type of periodontal disease treatment that a diabetic receives may vary depending on the stage of their gum disease, their overall health, and other factors that are determined by a periodontist at LN Periodontics.

Seeking prompt periodontal treatment is especially important for those who suffer from diabetes because their blood sugar levels may cause gum disease side effects to progress very rapidly. More information about the correlation between gum disease, diabetes and the many different gum disease treatment options available in Louisville may be found by visiting the website of LN Periodontics.
