Doylestown, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/01/2018 -- Almost half of all Americans suffer from a disease that can lead to tooth loss or gum damage. In a 2010 study conducted by the CDC, the agency estimated that nearly 64.7 million people in the United States have some form of gum disease, also referred to as periodontal disease. In many cases, people are unaware that they are suffering from gum disease.
Bash Dental, home to a leading cosmetic dentist in Bucks County, PA, provides patients with treatment for gum disease. Those who are in need of a proper diagnosis and treatment are urged to contact their dentist office today to schedule an appointment.
Dr. Richard Bash and his staff believe that practicing vigilance is important when it comes to gum disease. During each dental exam that a family dentist from Bash Dental in Southampton, PA conducts, they can identify if a patient is suffering from gum disease and the stage of its progression, such as mild, moderate or severe. Upon diagnosis, an individualized treatment plan is put in place to provide the appropriate care to avoid the progression of the disease.
Only patients who have a severe and advanced stage of gum disease would require surgery. Most patient treatments involve non-surgical methods like scaling and root planing, also known as deep cleaning.
Those who wish to receive a diagnosis on the health of their gums through a simple, routine dental check-up should contact Bash Dental today by calling 215-789-4106 or visiting online at http://www.bashdental.com to schedule an appointment.
