According to the American Academy of Periodontology, 47.2 percent of Americans suffer from periodontitis, an advanced form of gum disease.*
Dr. Shaaban dreamed of becoming a dentist since he was a child. He has been practicing dentistry for over 15 years and takes part in many continuing education opportunities, allowing him to stay up-to-date on the latest techniques and technology.
Advanced forms of gum disease have a number of adverse effects on your health. Periodontal disease can result in loose teeth and lost teeth, and can even impact the jawbone. Periodontal disease has also been linked to health problems outside the mouth, including some forms of cancer, heart disease, and difficulties for childbirth.
Because of the seriousness of advanced stages of periodontal disease, advanced gum disease treatments are also rather invasive, often involving surgery. Advanced technology now allows you to avoid invasive surgery. By treating gum disease with lasers instead of scalpels, Dr. Shaaban offers a more effective treatment with a much faster recovery time.
Dr. Shaaban is committed to providing dental services that improve the health and beauty of your teeth while decreasing the need for more invasive procedures. Contact our staff and we'll be sure to follow up with you within 24 hours.
