Maintaining the health of your gums is essential with routine cleanings. Without consistent, professional dental cleanings, plaque and tarter can build up, causing your gums to become inflamed and eventually lead to bone loss and premature loss of teeth.
Some people are unfortunately predisposed to periodontal disease no matter how much they brush and floss. In fact, over 50% of American adults have some form of periodontal disease.
Ignoring to treat it can not only cause problems within your mouth, but can affect your overall health. There is a whole lot of research linking periodontal disease to systemic health conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, dementia, and even prosthetic joint and pregnancy complications.
The good news is that we have several options available to help you treat this disease and live a healthier life.
