September is National Gum Care Month!

Join us here at Shenandoah Valley Implant Institute during the month of September as we do our part to spread the word about National Gum Care Month. Gum disease is preventable by following good oral hygiene that begins with proper gum care. For a periodontist in Harrisonburg, VA with skill and expertise in this area, trust Dr. Steven Saunders and Dr. Victor Saunders to provide innovative treatments that maximize comfort and chances for long-term success.


Proper Gum Care Tips

Bacteria live in our mouths in the form of plaque, which can cause cavities and gingivitis. The result is gum disease. The good news is that periodontal disease is preventable by practicing good oral hygiene and following proper gum care tips. Some tips include:

·         Quitting smoking
·         Eating a well-balanced diet
·         Reducing stress
·         Stop grinding or clenching teeth
·         Brushing, flossing and rinsing with mouthwash
·         Regularly visiting the periodontist

That daily task of brushing and flossing has never been more critical to avoid gum disease and achieving optimal dental health is critical to maintaining overall wellbeing. Make sure not to brush too vigorously and always choose a soft-bristle toothbrush.



Gum Disease Treatment Alternative

Gum disease is associated with a variety of health complications, such as diabetes and heart disease. Laser gum treatment is a state-of-the-art procedure that is replacing surgical methods. Laser Assisted new Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) is a type of gum disease treatment that utilizes minimally invasive lasers to remove diseased tissue and bacteria. We recommend LANAP® for the following reasons:

·         Minimal pain and bleeding
·         Quicker healing
·         Lasting and long-term results
·         Minimal to no gum recession

LANAP® helps restore the surrounding areas and reverse any damage caused by periodontal disease by stimulating areas to promote regrowth.
