You may not be experiencing any obvious symptoms or discomfort. That’s true for some of our patients. Based on his or her exam, your general dentist may have detected an issue in your mouth during a routine visit. We are here to team up with your dentist and assist in bettering your oral and overall health.
Despite the possible lack of symptoms, periodontal problems are serious and you should seek treatment for them as soon as possible. Periodontal disease slowly destroys the gum line and bone support for your teeth. Eventually, periodontitis leads to tooth loss. In addition, several studies connect periodontal disease to cardiac problems, including heart disease and heart attacks. Periodontal infections have also been linked to premature and low birth weight babies. The disease can also adversely affect a diabetic’s ability to control blood sugar levels.
