A national campaign is underway this month to increase awareness about gum health and periodontal disease. Here at South Florida Periodontics and Dental Implants, we want to do our part to help spread the word. If you are searching for a periodontist in Miami, FL, look no further than Dr. Scott Ross and Dr. Bradley Ross.  

Gingivitis is the first stage of gum disease and is tough to detect. They are experts in the periodontal field and are here to help you recognize the warning signs of gum disease, which can include:

 ·         Gums that bleed easily
 ·         Swollen, tender gums
 ·         Frequent bad breath
 ·         Shifting or loose teeth
 ·         Any changes in the biting position
 ·         Longer appearing teeth  

Take proactive steps immediately if you see any of these signs to prevent gum disease. We can show you how to develop better daily oral hygiene habits.  

Laser Treatment Alternatives

Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP®) is an advanced laser treatment technique that Dr. Scott Ross and Dr. Bradley Ross use to save teeth that may have been considered hopeless previously. Using a laser beam of light, they can gently remove the bacteria and diseased tissues from the gum pockets. The result is allowing the body to heal naturally, improving the health of the gum pockets, and creating more stability for the teeth.  

Because the procedure is minimally invasive, there is less pain and a faster healing time. Instead of cutting away diseased and healthy tissue, it is preserved, reducing infection, root sensitivity and exposure. The results include bringing patients back to a healthy state. Only one percent of dentists in the United States are certified to perform this laser gum therapy, including Dr. Scott Ross and Dr. Bradley Ross.
