Gum Disease Is a Bacterial Infection
If you have recently been diagnosed with gum disease, it is vital to seek treatment from your dentist immediately to save your teeth and bone.
Gum disease as an active and progressive bacterial infection in your mouth that, if left untreated, will lead to devastating tooth and bone loss.
Gum disease has also been found to travel through your bloodstream to infect other systems of your body, increasing your risk for:
- Heart disease
- Memory loss
- Premature or low birthweight babies
- Head, neck, and pancreatic cancer
As your dentist, Dr. McIntyre will usually recommend regular periodontal maintenance cleanings if you have been diagnosed with periodontal disease.
Periodontal maintenance is an ongoing oral hygiene program that is designed to stop the progression of gum disease.
Catching periodontal disease early and controlling the spread of bacteria will not only save your teeth and bone from deteriorating but it will also prevent bigger, more time-consuming, and more costly appointments in the future.
Bone loss is common with gum disease. Other problems include loose teeth, a sunken facial appearance, and limitations on how your teeth can be restored.
Dr. McIntyre provides bone grafting to augment or increase bone volume in areas of bone loss.
