When your parents encouraged you to care for your teeth, they may not have realized that they were also helping your care for your gums and body.  Today we know the importance of periodontal (gum) care, and that its disease can exacerbate other health problems, including serious and life-threatening ones.

SYMPTOMS:  Gum disease can advance with symptoms, but warning signs can include red, swollen or bleeding gums, bad breath or loose teeth

CAUSES:  The mildest form of gum disease, gingivitis, is caused by inadequate oral hygiene, hormone fluctuations, certain medications, and even stress. If left untreated, it can advance to periodontitis, a chronic inflammation of the gums.

RISKS:  Periodontal disease has been linked to many other inflammatory diseases, including cancers, heart diseases, respiratory diseases and diabetes.  With diabetes, the relationship is particularly complex: complications are more likely to increase for those with gum disease.  If you or a loved on has diabetes, regular dental visits are essential. Call us today to schedule checkups for you and your family.  Our aim is to catch and treat problems early- long before they become major health issues.
