  Salem, OR (PRWEB) July 02, 2015   Sunny Drake, DMD, MS is currently accepting new patients suffering from gum disease in Salem, OR, without a referral. She is one of the few periodontists in the country certified to offer a unique laser gum surgery known as the LANAP(R) protocol. This minimally invasive procedure uses a special beam of light to target bacteria without affecting healthy tissue. The gums do not need to be cut, so there is little bleeding, and the healing process is measured in days instead of weeks.         Periodontitis begins with a mixture of bacteria and food acid called plaque. This sticky substance builds up around the base of teeth and below the gum line, unless it is removed with twice daily brushing and flossing and regular professional dental cleanings. Unfortunately, even people who practice good oral hygiene may develop gingivitis and periodontitis due to other risk factors such as genetics, hormone fluctuations and overly crowded teeth. One of the earliest symptoms is inflammation of the gums. A timely visit to the dentist can catch the disease early and prevent the later complications, but if individuals with gum disease in Salem, OR procrastinate about seeking treatment, the moderate and severe stages of periodontitis require oral surgery.         Periodontists performing traditional scalpel surgery to treat gum disease in Salem, OR, access the infected area below the gum line by cutting them and pulling them away from the roots of teeth.

  Sandy, Utah (PRWEB) July 02, 2015           Apex Dental, one of Utah's most prominent dental care providers, has announced plans to provide free dentistry to those in need in three Utah counties simultaneously on July 18th, 2015, from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Dubbed Smiles for Success, this event is designed as a way for Apex to give back to the communities that have supported it over the years.       "We believe that everyone has the right to achieve their own personal Apex," said Joe Maio, CEO of Apex Dental. "And that's what Smiles for Success is all about. It pains me to think of all the people who might be held back in life because of something so simple as dental-related pain or health concerns, and we hope this will be a good beginning for people trying to improve their quality of life."           During Smiles for Success, patients will be able to choose between one cleaning, one tooth extraction, or one filling at absolutely no cost. Appointments are not required, as patients will be served on a first come, first serve basis.       Patients will be provided with dental care at three separate Apex Dental locations.

Till now, the colleges would send a report annually, just before the DCI inspection.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR

YES, IT WAS ABOUT RACISM

Since the tragic mass murder in the Charleston church, I have been told I shouldn't politicize the deaths by bringing up the possibility of racism. I am reminded the people were killed in a church and it was an attack against Christians and churches. I was told racists don't attack Christian churches. So I reminded them of the history of civil rights and church bombings in the 1960s.

I have also been told not to politicize it because it's not about guns. I hear that every time there's a mass murder.
