Eden Prairie, MN Periodontist, Dr. Andres Sanchez, Improves Diagnostics and Treatment of Periodontal Disease

Dr. Andres Sanchez, board-certified periodontist in Eden Prairie, MN, invested in a new microscope to offer patients a more detailed look at the severity of harmful bacteria causing their periodontal disease.

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn., June 28, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Board-certified periodontist in Eden Prairie, MN, Dr. Andres Sanchez, recently invested in a new microscope to improve diagnostics and care for patients with periodontal disease. With this new microscope, Dr. Sanchez can offer patients more precise microbial detection and testing for periodontal disease and halitosis, or bad breath.

Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is an ongoing bacterial infection in the gums and jawbone that leads to inflammation under the gums. This inflammation destroys the bone surrounding the teeth which can lead to tooth loss. The buildup of bacteria results in bad breath and poor oral health. Moreover, as bacteria increases from the periodontal infection, it releases into the bloodstream, causing health issues throughout the body. Research has linked periodontal disease with serious systemic health issues such as heart disease, stroke, respiratory diseases, and diabetes.

The body's immune system is designed to fight bacteria in order to heal an infection. However, because periodontal disease is an ongoing infection, the immune system is never able to fully rid the body of the bacteria without treatment. Dr. Sanchez, and his team at PerioWest in Eden Prairie, MN offer a variety of treatments for periodontal disease, including scaling and root planning, minimally invasive LANAP® laser treatment, and periodontal microsurgery. Now, with the practice's new microscope, Dr. Sanchez can get a more detailed breakdown of the bacterial impact of a patient's mouth. This not only enhances his level of care in the treatment, but it gives patients a tangible look at how serious their gum disease is.

Patients who receive treatment from Dr. Sanchez for periodontal disease, and its related effects such as tooth loss and bad breath, boast of the excellent care they receive at PerioWest. "I'm very, very happy with the results of it," David, one of Dr. Sanchez's LANAP patients, explains. "It's an easy procedure, it's not painful, and the people here are wonderful."
