Recent studies have shown that Periodontal Disease can have significant effects on not only your oral health, but your overall health. It has been associated with health problems such as diabetes and heart disease.
Gingivitis is an early form of Periodontitis, or gum disease. If you experience an occasional swelling of the gums, gums that bleed after brushing or flossing, itchy gums, or bright red or purple gums, chances are you have Gingivitis. Gingivitis can be treated by having your teeth professionally cleaned, followed by a strict oral hygiene regimen, including anti-bacterial rinses. If the condition is left untreated, Gingivitis can escalate into Periodontitis. Periodontitis symptoms include those of Gingivitis, as well as, a metallic taste in the mouth, receding gums, enlarged spaces between the gums and teeth, severe halitosis (bad breath), and even loose teeth (from loss of bone).
To arrest Periodontitis, we remove the buildup of bacterial plaque and calculus, through scraping or ultrasonic vibration. Alternatively, antibiotics may be placed between the teeth and gums, which also help to reduce plaque and combat the disease. The best defense against gum disease is prevention and early detection through regular oral examination and cleaning.
