Periodontal Care

The term dental period means “around the tooth”. Gum disease also attacks the bones that are attached to the teeth. A sticky film of food particles, bacteria, and saliva is called plaque. If the plaque is not removed, it will turn into calculus (tartar). If the tumor is not removed, the gums begin to destroy the bones. Bleeding, vomiting, bleeding and gum from gum disease.

Four out of five people have arthritis and don’t know it! Most people don’t know because the disease is usually painless in the early stages.

Not only is it the leading cause of tooth decay, but research shows that periodontal disease can also be associated with other diseases such as, stroke, viral lung infection, diabetes, heart disease, and it is also associated with an increased risk of pregnancy. Researchers are determining whether the inflammation and bacteria associated with arthritis affect these systemic diseases and conditions. Smoking also increases the risk of arthritis.

Oral hygiene, a balanced diet, and regular dental checkups can help reduce the risk of gum disease.

Signs and symptoms of periodontal disease:

Gums should never bleed, even when you brush vigorously or use dental floss.

Caused by bone loss.
Caused by bacteria in the mouth.
Sign that there is an infection present.
Loss of gum and bone around a tooth.
