Your mouth is a living organism, full of nerve endings and live tissue. All the elements of your mouth depend on each other to sustain balance and overall oral health.
When an area of the mouth becomes infected, other areas are subsequently exposed to disease and decay. This is why gum disease treatment, or periodontal disease treatment, is crucial.
What Is Gum Disease?
Gum disease is fairly common—it involves the infection of the gum tissue in the mouth which can lead to damage in your jawbone and other areas of your mouth. Symptoms include:
- Swollen, Red, or Tender Gums.
- Bad Breath.
- Loose Teeth.
- Receding Gums.
- Tooth Loss.
Some of these symptoms may seem manageable, but you shouldn’t have to live with any discomfort in your smile. Call our office today to start your periodontal disease treatment.
Why Should I Get Treated For Gum Disease?
In the event that you contract gum disease, getting treatment is the right choice. Taking care of your oral health and getting necessary periodontal disease treatment can go a long way to preserving your overall health.
Oral Health and Overall Health
Disease and decay in the gums, if left untreated, can also be seriously detrimental to your overall health.
Gum disease is easily preventable but just as easily contracted—it all comes down to whether you are brushing and flossing your teeth consistently or not. One choice leads to healthy gums and decreased chance of contracting periodontal disease, the other often ends in contraction of gum disease.
The state of your oral health can and will affect the state of your overall health. If the infection spreads far enough to enter your main bloodstream, you could be looking at serious side effects, including increased risk of stroke, heart disease, diabetes, pneumonia, and cancer.
