Oral Hygiene and Gum Disease (Periodontics)
Insufficient oral hygiene practices have deleterious effects on your oral health and general welfare. Bacteria build up creating inflammation of the gums, leading to periodontal disease and contributing to other systemic diseases.
Early prevention is advantageous, as advanced bone loss from periodontal disease is usually irreversible and can lead to tooth loss. Our dentists and hygienists will assess your mouth for signs of gum disease and treat these before they progress too far.
Current research has demonstrated the bidirectional relationship between periodontal disease and diseases such as cardiovascular disease, type II diabetes mellitus, adverse pregnancy outcomes and osteoporosis.
