Taking good care of your teeth and gums is an important part of life. A beautiful smile not only looks good, but it is also an indicator of your overall health. Studies have shown that systemic illnesses, such as cardiovascular disease and diabetes, are directly linked to oral health complications like periodontal (gum) disease. In the event you suffer tooth loss from periodontal disease, genetics, injury, or poor oral hygiene, dental implants can repair your smile. If you are in need of any professional periodontal or implant treatment, you have come to the right place!
What is Periodontal Disease?
By age 45, over 80 percent of Americans will have some form of periodontal disease, which is a bacterial infection that gradually destroys the tissue that supports your teeth. Bacteria in dental plaque produces toxins or poisons, which irritate the gums. If this irritation is prolonged, the gums separate from the teeth, causing pockets (spaces) to form. Fortunately, many treatments exist for periodontal disease, and with proper care and maintenance, its progression can be delayed or even stopped.
