What is Periodontal disease?

Periodontal disease, or gum disease, is a chronic inflammation of the gums, caused by a build up below the gum- line. It can start as early as 14 years of age and is highly dependent on genetics. Chronic inflammation of the gums can have a serious impact on one’s heart, lungs, bones, and blood-sugar levels. For pregnant women, periodontal disease can also have a significant negative effect on fetal development.

Although the periodontal disease does not usually cause pain, it can cause other severe complications if not treated promptly. Periodontal disease causes the gums to loosen and pull away from your tooth, creating pockets. Bacteria then settles into those pockets, causing infection. The bone structure supporting the teeth will begin to deteriorate and can, over time, cause the teeth to become loose or even fall out.

 

 Periodontal disease can have a direct effect on your overall health:

  • Circulatory System
    Bacteria enters the bloodstream through the gums and can travel to other parts of your body. This can cause secondary infections and can contribute to diseases already in progress.
  • Inflammation
    The body’s inflammatory response to periodontal disease can trigger other inflammatory diseases such as heart disease, diabetes, and kidney failure and can cause arteries to swell.
  • Respiratory System
    The bacteria from gum disease attaches to saliva droplets that you inhale. You can breathe in bacteria when you inhale, increasing the bacteria in the lungs, and can causing pulmonary infections and respiratory problems.
  • Blood Sugar
    Inflammation from gum disease increases blood-sugar levels and weakens the body’s ability to control blood sugar.

Periodontal Disease Treatment

While periodontal disease is not curable, it can be stabilized with the right treatment. Through home care is also imperative. Once you are diagnosed with periodontal disease, the first step in treatment is to have a deep cleaning (scaling and root planning). This cleaning consists of two appointments where the hygienist will take care of one side of your mouth at a time. Your hygienist will administer an anesthetic to ensure your comfort, and use a special cleaning tool remove the build-up and bacteria from the pockets surrounding your teeth. Your hygienist will then smooth the root of the tooth to help prevent bacteria from adhering to it. Once both the right and left

  1. Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa? My website goes over a lot of the same subjects as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other. If you’re interested feel free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Awesome blog by the way!

  2. Most of what you articulate happens to be astonishingly accurate and it makes me ponder the reason why I had not looked at this in this light before. Your article truly did switch the light on for me personally as far as this specific issue goes. However there is one position I am not really too cozy with so while I make an effort to reconcile that with the actual main idea of your point, let me see just what all the rest of the visitors have to point out.Well done.
