Core Holistic Dental – Periodontal Treatment
It is common that periodontal disease can progress without a patient being aware of it at all. In some cases, no signs or symptoms will occur. By having regular dental examinations and routine cleanings, our team can catch the signs of periodontal disease, and help gain control of the bacteria.
Some common symptoms of periodontal disease include:
- unexplained bleeding when brushing, flossing or eating
- redness of the gums,
- longer looking teeth
- teeth mobility
- bad breath.
It is important to catch the periodontal disease before it advances, to ensure that the harmful bacteria does not destroy the supporting tissues and bone. This can cause degeneration, and therefore less support for teeth, making them susceptible to falling out. It is critical to treat the infection before it is absorbed into the blood stream, allowing bacteria to be spread throughout the body. This disease can not only destroy the teeth and jaw, but also makes patients more susceptible to conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, stroke, obesity, and premature labor.
