Are Gum Disease And Tooth Loss Linked?

How much effect can problems with your periodontal health really have on your appearance and well-being? In time, the tissue damage linked to your infection can have significant consequences, as you can end up losing teeth! Complications from poor periodontal health lead all other causes of adult tooth loss. This is not the only problem linked to this condition, but it is one that can create real unease. If you have had difficulty managing your gum health, know that our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice can help. We provide different services based on patients’ needs in order to control infections. We can also take care of you if you have already experienced tooth loss because of your trouble with your periodontal health.

Trouble With Your Gums Can Lead To Tooth Loss

If you have a problem with periodontal disease that is not being managed properly, tissue damage can weaken support that your teeth depend on and ultimately lead to their losses. As that problem worsens and you lose more teeth, you can experience problems with your appearance as well as your bite function. Over time, you can deal with worsening oral health issues, including the loss of jawbone density.

While problems with periodontal disease extend beyond troubles with tooth loss, the concern around preserving your full smile is certainly understandable. Fortunately, you can count on care from our practice to help you fight harmful bacteria on teeth roots and remove diseased gums. You can also look forward to help if you have already experienced tooth loss!

Implant Dentistry And Your Incomplete Smile

Implant dentistry provides support for prosthetic teeth that can lead to more comfort and better bite bite support. After tending to active problems with periodontal disease, we can make plans to place the implant in the appropriate position and angle to offer the best support for your restoration. This arrangement mimics the kind of support that natural teeth enjoy from their roots, and it can ensure you feel secure after treatment.

Taking Action To Manage Poor Periodontal Health

Active problems with poor periodontal health can be managed in different ways. For some patients, the right path forward can be one that uses soft tissue lasers to carefully remove bacteria and infected areas of the gums. We can also look at the advantages to holistic treatments like ozone therapy and PRP therapy to manage bacteria.
