About Non-Surgical Gum Treatment
Unfortunately, periodontal (gum) disease can lead to more than just an unsightly smile — it a cause loss of teeth and eventually, if left untreated, serious health problems. Called gingivitis in its early stages, periodontal disease is caused by excessive toxic bacteria (found in plaque) that attacks your mouth’s soft tissues. Early warning signs of this disease include red, swollen, bleeding gums. If caught early, we can help you reverse the damage or, if detected late, we can use one of many effective cosmetic dentistry procedures to restore your mouth to a healthy, beautiful state.
Most recently, research has directly connected gum disease to:
- Greater likelihood of a heart attack or other heart related problems
- High Blood Pressure
- Low birthweights in newborns
Scientists have even identified the bacteria that causes gum disease in brains of patients who have Alzheimer’s disease.
