Dual board-certified periodontist, Dr. Jin Kim, raises awareness of gum disease, especially during the coronavirus pandemic, and the disease’s connection to systemic health complications and a lowered immune system. He encourages individuals with tender and bleeding gums to treat their symptoms with minimally invasive laser dentistry in Garden Grove, CA and Diamond Bar, CA, at either of his two practice locations.
Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults, but commonly goes unnoticed until infection has spread and caused noticeable signs, including swollen and bleeding gums. Gum disease begins when bacterial plaque is left to harden into tartar on the tooth surfaces. A release of toxins infects the gum tissue and, as the body reacts to this infection, it leads to inflammation of the gums, which can then pull away from the teeth. If the infection and inflammation are not treated in early stages of gum disease, it will progress until it has caused significant damage to the bone and tissues.
At this stage, bacteria can enter the bloodstream and travel throughout the body. Advanced periodontal disease, or gum disease, has been linked to systemic health complications, including respiratory disease, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, cardiovascular disease, heart attack, and even stroke. Chronic infection and inflammation also increase the risk of a lowered immune system and the susceptibility to other dangerous diseases and viruses.
Dr. Kim can treat gum disease and restore oral health through several different measures, including scaling and root planing, gingivectomy, osseous surgery, and periodontal maintenance. Dr. Kim is also certified in LANAP® and offers minimally invasive laser dentistry to treat moderate to advanced cases of periodontal disease.
Laser gum disease therapy relies on powerful laser light to eradicate disease, eliminating the need for scalpels and sutures. During the procedure, the laser beam selectively targets and vaporizes diseased tissues and bacteria without harming healthy gums. The laser also helps produce healthy blood clotting, prevents future infection, and encourages healthy tissue reattachment. The laser used in LANAP therapy is the only FDA-cleared laser to regenerate new soft tissue and bone at the treatment site. Patients who receive gum disease treatment and restore their oral health significantly reduce their chances of contracting other diseases and viruses. Dr. Kim strongly encourages individuals showing signs of periodontal disease to seek his expert treatment, especially in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Dr. Kim specializes in comprehensive gum disease treatment, including laser dentistry services like LANAP. A periodontal expert with decades of experience, Dr. Kim continues to further his education and skills by staying abreast of the latest developments in periodontology. He regularly lectures, researches, consults, and teaches on subjects pertaining to periodontics and dental implants. He is also board-certified by the American Board of Periodontology and the American Board of Oral Implantology/Implant Dentistry.
A true expert in gum disease treatment, he has helped thousands of patients restore their health and smiles with personalized and innovative periodontal care. At his two practice locations, he and his team continue to follow guidelines from the CDC, OSHA, and ADA and take advanced safety and sanitization measures to help slow the spread of COVID-19 and keep their patients safe and healthy.
