periodontal-disease

In excess of 75% of Americans age 35 and over possess some kind of gingivitis, a consequence of inadequate dental hygiene and the subsequent build-up of plaque. In its very first stage, your gumline may bleed easily and swell. At its worst, you may lose your teeth. Thus, if you would like to keep your teeth, you must take care of your gumline. The good thing is that gingivitis is preventable in most cases.

Attention to daily oral health (flossing and brushing), coupled with expert cleanings 2 times each year, may be all that’s needed to stop and actually reverse the early stage of gingivitis.

Periodontal (gum) disease is quite prevalent, and the most typical cause of tooth loss in men and women. It is additionally avoidable, and easily dealt with and reversed if found early on. Research has revealed a connection in between gingivitis and elevated risk of heart problems, stroke, as well as diabetes.  The main cause of gingivitis is the build-up of plaque in your mouth. With preventive cleanings we could get rid of the tarter build-up before it causes gum irritation and disease. Our periodontal specialists deal with beginning stages of periodontal disease inside our office but may recommend you to a specialist for more complex scenarios.

 

Periodontal Disease Management

Time and gum disease can shrink the underlying bone and gum tissue that hold your teeth in place, collapsing the proportions of your face, exposing tooth roots and adding years to your appearance.

Early detection is the key to avoiding costly and painful dental treatment. Prevention begins with the control of plaque and calculus, the main cause of decay and periodontal disease. In fact, the major cause of tooth loss in adults is periodontal disease, which is known as the silent killer of teeth because most patients feel no symptoms until it’s too late. With regular dental visits, we can treat gum disease at an early stage, before it gets out of hand.
