Periodontal (Gum) Disease Treatment

 

Periodontal (gum) disease is insidious. It is an infection of the gums that begins as a biofilm or plaque, an opaque film on the teeth that hardens to form tartar. As tartar accumulates, it harbors bacteria that attack the soft tissue around the gums. This is the early stage of gum disease known as gingivitis. Left untreated, gingivitis becomes periodontitis which ultimately destroys the tissue surrounding your teeth AND the bone that holds your teeth in place. Except for bad breath and gums that bleed, there are very few early warning signals. The disease advances silently, often without pain, and before you know it, you are losing your teeth and you don't know why.

 

Tooth loss is the most obvious indicator of gum disease. Scientific research has discovered linkage between gum disease and stroke, heart disease, diabetes - even an increased risk for pregnant women. When your gums become diseased, your entire immune system is weakened.

 

The dentist and hygienists at Avon Dental Group will monitor your gum health on a regular basis and assist you in preventing periodontal disease.
