Dr. Joseph Nemeth, a world-renowned periodontist who has remained committed to providing exceptional care locally for over 25 years, and Dr. Amar Katranji, one of the Metro area’s top experts in handling complex dental implant procedures, want to keep not only your mouth, but your whole body in the best of health! “The goal of our practice is to help our patients achieve a ‘Healthy Mouth, Healthier Body’ via the most state-of-the-art periodontal treatments available,” says Dr. Nemeth. “Our entire periodontal staff is dedicated to maximizing the health of our patients’ teeth and gums through individualized treatments and personalized care.”
Do your gums ever bleed when you floss? Even if you don’t have mouth pain, bleeding gums are NEVER healthy! You most likely have periodontal disease, which is infection caused by harmful bacteria under your gums. It may not sound like a big deal, but periodontal disease can lead to bone loss, and ultimately to tooth loss. Periodontal disease is also linked to many other systemic diseases like Alzheimer’s, cancer, and heart disease, and if you have diabetes, gum disease can make it more difficult to control.
Dr. Nemeth and his team can diagnose and treat gum recession and periodontal (gum disease) symptoms. Dr. Nemeth performs LANAP®, a laser procedure for treating gum disease that eradicates bacteria under the gums and permits new bone growth and gum reattachment.
“For patients with gum disease or gum recession, conscious sedation and minimally invasive technology have had transformative effects,” says Dr. Nemeth. “Using the Chao Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation Technique® to treat gum recession is far more comfortable and offers consistently greater outcomes than in the past. The procedure eliminates the need to cut tissue out of the palate or other areas to cover receding gums.”
