Periodontal Therapy

Why are healthy gums important?

Healthy gums are tightly fused to your tooth roots, which is important in keeping the bacteria in your mouth from invading into your bloodstream.

If you have gingivitis your gums bleed easily, which allows oral bacteria an open door through which to enter your bloodstream. This can cause a variety of health problems, and can even lead to a stroke or heart attack.

What is periodontal disease?

If gingivitis goes untreated long enough, it will also destroy the attachment between your gums and your tooth roots. This is called periodontal disease, which eventually leads to losing your teeth.

Is periodontal disease treatable?

Periodontal disease can be completely eliminated. It is not something you are doomed to suffer just because your parents had it. If your gums bleed when you brush, something is wrong. Visit your dentist soon.
