A Healthy Smile Can Help You Live a Healthier Life
Studies suggest that the inflammation caused by periodontal disease may be connected to increased inflammation throughout the body, which can increase the risk of developing heart disease. Other studies have suggested that the bacteria associated with gum disease can increase your risk of developing serious health problems by entering the blood vessels and traveling to other parts of the body. If you are experiencing symptoms of gum disease, we can help you achieve a healthier smile and avoid serious health complications.
Preserving Your Teeth
Addressing periodontal health issues with gum surgery or nonsurgical periodontal treatment can help you prevent tooth loss, which is important for several reasons. Obviously, your teeth help you to chew and enunciate properly. They also help maintain dental alignment and occlusion, or the way your upper and lower jaws meet. Meanwhile, when teeth are lost, the jawbone begins to atrophy, or shrink, which can jeopardize surrounding teeth. If you have lost a tooth, a dental implant can halt jaw atrophy, but we always strive to help patients avoid tooth loss so that this solution never becomes necessary. With prompt periodontal treatment, proper at-home hygiene, and regular general checkups, patients can maintain their teeth for a lifetime.
Alleviating Pain and Discomfort
Although periodontal disease often begins with no noticeable symptoms, it will eventually cause tenderness and pain, which can become severe. Periodontal treatment can remove the bacteria causing the infection, restoring the health of your gums and providing relief from discomfort.
