Why Gum Disease Treatment is Essential for Good Overall Health
Maintaining healthy gums is essential to good dental, oral and overall health. The status of the health of your gums and teeth are closely tied to your total health. A problem with your gums and teeth can have negative effects on your entire body. Periodontal or gum gum disease can cause inflammation, swelling and infection of the tissues and gums that help stabilize your teeth. Usually, periodontal disease starts after a lack of proper dental care, tooth brushing, flossing and cleansing. These poor dental care habits can permit plaque and bacteria to form and harden on the teeth. This typically causes problems on the teeth and gums. Patients with gum disease can develop gum infections that can imperil the gum tissues and damage the bone in the jaw, causing tooth loss. It can cause serious overall health effects, too, such as heart and lung conditions and other diseases.
Symptoms of Gum Disease
Signs of periodontitis or gum disease typically show themselves in swelling, redness, tenderness and inflammation of the gum tissues, which can be painful. Gum disease is typically caused by bad oral hygiene—poor brushing and flossing habits that allow plaque—a sticky film of bacteria—to build up on the teeth and harden.
The dental care team at Oral Dental Health of Metro Houston takes on a comprehensive approach to oral health. We will evaluate the condition of your gums and teeth and offer the most-effective solution for gum disease treatment. One procedure we use are sessions of special cleaning of the gums, focusing on treating the pockets of tissue surrounding teeth to mitigate the adverse consequences of gum disease on the jawbone.
