Greenville, SC Dental Clinic Offering Cutting-Edge Treatment for Gingivitis, Periodontal Disease

GREENVILLE, SC--(Marketwired - September 30, 2014) - Dr. William Brown Jr., one of the best and most-trusted Greenville, S.C., family dentists, is now providing a cutting-edge treatment that can better assist patients struggling with periodontal disease.

Brown Dental Care recently began offering Perio Protect, an FDA-approved comprehensive treatment that helps manage and disrupt the growth of biofilms, which are communities of bacteria that cause gum disease. According to the World Health Organization, 8 out of 10 Americans have some form of periodontal disease, and many are unaware they have a problem at all.

Periodontal disease is important to treat because bacteria associated with gum disease have been connected to heart disease, Type II diabetes, respiratory disease, stroke, blood clots, chronic inflammation, and preterm and low birth-weight babies.

Patients with periodontal disease commonly will have bleeding, swollen or tender gums, loose or sensitive teeth, spaces between their teeth, receding gums, bad breath, and plaque or tartar buildup. Dr. Brown said he is pleased now to offer a better treatment option for patients in order to combat such a common and recurrent oral health issue.

"Our office is one of just a few in the Greenville area offering Perio Protect to treat gingivitis and periodontal diseases," said Dr. Brown, who also offers some of the best cosmetic dentistry and teeth whitening Greenville, S.C., has to offer. "Traditional periodontal treatment attempts to remove bacteria deposits that cause gum infection, but often the infection returns. Perio Protect helps us achieve control of the bacteria in a much more predictable way."

The Perio Protect method uses a custom-fitted dental tray for patients that allows doctor-prescribed solutions to reach the periodontal pocket, which forms between the teeth and gums and causes gum disease. Dr. Brown said patients who use the treatment find it comfortable and report having healthier gums, whiter teeth and fresher breath.

"Perio Protect is the key we have been searching for for years in the battle against periodontal disease. Now, we have a therapy that is simple and noninvasive," said Dr. Brown, who has had his Greenville practice for 25 years. "Patients are amazed at the ease of using Perio Protect and see dramatic improvements in their gums through reduced swelling, bleeding and bad breath."

Dr. Brown is a 1983 graduate of Bob Jones University in Greenville and 1987 graduate of West Virginia University School of Dentistry. He completed a two-year residency at Wake Forest Medical Center in Winston-Salem, N.C. He then opened his Greenville office in August 1989 and recently celebrated his 25th anniversary in practice. Dr. Brown also has completed the requirements for the Fellowship in the Academy of General Dentistry, which involves hundreds of hours of continuing education.  

Dr. Brown offers family dentistry and preventive care, teeth whitening at the dentist, crowns and bridges, implant restoration, sedation dentistry, routine tooth-color fillings and periodontal services. Brown Dental Care is a state-of-art facility that includes digital X-rays, digital photography and an intraoral camera.
