Drs. Marianne Urbanski and Gregory Toback Foster Awareness During National Diabetes Month


Patients experiencing gum disease symptoms including red, bleeding gums in New London, CT or Westerly, RI, are invited to receive treatment from leading periodontists, Drs. Gregory Toback and Marianne Urbanski. In honor of National Diabetes Month, this experienced team is raising awareness of the troubling connection between untreated oral diseases and systemic health conditions.

Many are unaware that they have gum disease because they are not familiar with the common symptoms. While symptoms may vary depending on the individual and the severity of his or her case, the most common signs of gum disease include swollen, bleeding gums, chronic bad breath and receding gums. In severe cases, one or more teeth can also become loose and eventually fall out. If left untreated, the infection caused by gum disease can spread throughout the body, possibly causing additional medical conditions or exacerbating existing ones.

As leading periodontists, Drs. Toback and Urbanski specialize in gum disease treatment and are proud to offer minimally invasive LANAP® treatment for patients with bleeding gums in New London, CT or Westerly, RI. Treatment with the laser-based LANAP technique is gentle and remarkably precise at targeting only infected gum tissue. Drs. Toback and Urbanski encourage patients with symptoms of gum disease to reduce their risk of diabetes, heart disease, stroke and other physical ailments by receiving LANAP treatment as soon as symptoms develop.

Passionate about offering quality periodontal care, Drs. Toback and Urbanski strive to learn and share the latest advancements in dentistry and periodontology. A Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology, Dr. Toback has published research in numerous periodontal journals. In 2006, he was invited to join the Society for Contemporary and Progressive Periodontists, a prestigious group of only 12 periodontists who evaluate new dental research and technology.

Patients showing signs of gum disease are urged to improve their oral health and reduce their risk of developing diabetes and other conditions by receiving treatment. Drs. Toback and Urbanski specialize in gum disease treatment and offer the LANAP laser solutions at their two cutting-edge practice locations. To schedule an appointment, individuals are welcome to call Shoreline Periodontics at 860-443-2428 for the New London practice or 401-596-0000 for the Westerly location.

Brad grew up in a small town in northern Iowa. He studied chemistry in college, graduated, and married his wife one month later. They were then blessed with two baby boys within the first four years of marriage. Having babies gave their family a desire to return to the old paths – to nourish their family with traditional, homegrown foods; rid their home of toxic chemicals and petroleum products; and give their boys a chance to know a simple, sustainable way of life. They are currently building a homestead from scratch on two little acres in central Texas. There’s a lot to be done to become somewhat self-sufficient, but they are debt-free and get to spend their days living this simple, good life together with their five young children.
