When you have gum disease and avoid or refusing to get help to treat the condition, you are opening yourself up to a wide host of other complications and conditions.
Gum disease is proven to lead to a number of other oral related conditions and diseases, not just tooth loss. If you have gum disease or know someone who does, you may want to schedule an appoint to see us sooner, rather than later.
Treating Gum Disease is Important
If you're at the beginning stages or when it might happen, it is important to think about treatment and what needs to be done. Becoming serious about your oral health is one of the best things you can do.
It is never too late to brush regularly and make sure you floss. Treatment should begin as early as possible to reduce the chances of anything bad happening.
If you do not treat the gum disease or do something about your oral health then this can cause the teeth to fall out, it can cause the bacteria to get under the gum line and cause further problems and it can even go to your heart and other systems in the body.
Gum disease can turn into periodontal disease. The bacteria created from gum disease has also been linked to several types of oral cancer already, so there really is no point in avoiding treatment.
If you are worried about your oral health and think you might have gum disease, contact our office today and schedule an appointment.
We will perform a thorough exam, which may include an oral cancer screening depending on what we find. Our goal is to help you overcome gum disease and get your oral health back on track as quickly as possible.
