We all brush our teeth because that’s what our parents taught us to do. Healthy teeth and gums result in a more attractive smile and can off pain in your mouth. You also won’t be as sensitive to hot and cold. Overall, teeth cleaning is important for a overall healthy well-being.
The reality is over, 75% of adults show signs of gum disease. There are many factors that play a role in this including. To name a few, gum disease can be caused by too much sugar and starch in your diet, smoking, poor oral hygiene and stress.
We recommend that all of our patients begin with some kind of regular hygiene routine. Leaving your dental hygiene to chance can cause grave consequences.
If left untreated, gum disease can lead to:
- low birth weight in newborns
- heart disease and strokes
- ineffectiveness of insulin in diabetics
- osteoporosis and diabetes
Teeth cleaning wards off periodontal disease
Left ignored, the symptoms of gingivitis can develop into periodontal disease. Periodontal disease can cause permanent damage to the bone and gums surrounding the roots or the teeth.
It starts with plaque spreading and growing in the gum line. This plaque creates toxins which then irritate and inflame the gums. At this point, the bacteria penetrates the blood stream – endangering organs, tissue, vessels and potentially harms an unborn fetus. The bone and tissue that supports the teeth start to break down and lead to a multitude of complications.
Gingivitis is stage one of periodontal disease
During this stage, gingivitis develops by forming plaque on teeth, gums bleeding easily, and gum inflammation. Calcium also forms overnight when plaque hardens.
A good dental hygiene routine is essential. After an evaluation, Dr. Mike and Dr. Sara Deldar can recommended hygiene program to best meets your needs. The goal is to avoid further periodontal problems that may necessitate surgical procedures or loss of teeth.
How is your Health?
Did you know your overall physical health and dental health are linked?
Periodontal exam and treatments make sense for medically and at-risk patients. People who are medically at-risk include those with diabetes, cardiovascular disease, pregnant women, and those taking medications that affect the gums (i.e. epileptics).
If you have diabetes or take medication, let Dr. Mike and Dr. Sara Deldar know. Some medications can affect your teeth and some can produce side effects. Dr. Mike and Dr. Sara Deldar can educate you and will consult with your physician if required. Routine exams include a thorough screening for any signs of oral cancer as well as blood pressure screenings.
