Is it time to talk to a specialist about the health of your gums? By not taking the threat of periodontal disease seriously, you can put yourself at risk for more issues than you realize. Over time, the bacteria on the roots of your teeth can destroy tissues that keep them stable, which leads to tooth loss. You also need to be concerned with the risk of bacteria entering your bloodstream and creating new problems for you. At our Encinitas/San Diego, CA periodontal practice, you can undergo a detailed review to determine how serious your gum disease might be. If there is still time to do so, we can provide preventive services to stop an infection before it worsens.
How Worried Do I Really Need To Be About My Periodontal Health?
If you are not taking your periodontal health seriously, there are long-term consequences that you can become vulnerable to as your condition worsens. Periodontal disease is the most common reason why adults lose their teeth. As time passes, the infection can see you suffer worsening tissue damage, which leads to teeth becoming insecure and needing to be extracted. It is also possible for your infection to make your general health harder to manage. When bacteria that cause inflammation travel from your gums to other areas of your body through your bloodstream, you can face potentially serious consequences.
Using A Diagnostic Review To Better Understand Your Issues With Gum Disease
By using diagnostic imaging technology, we can carefully study your gums to see what kind of issues you have that we will have to address. With the information that we gather, we can assess what kind of care you require. If there is still time to do so, we can provide preventive treatment to fight bacteria and stop your condition before it worsens. However, if you do show signs of periodontal disease, we can discuss different strategies for managing the problem to help you avoid complications.
We Can Provide Preventive And Restorative Services
For patients with gingivitis, we can provide a scaling and root planing, while those who have periodontal disease can undergo regular protection through supportive periodontal maintenance, which will help them stay safe from complications. If our review finds that there are already more serious concerns, we can look at different options to help you, including services that rely on laser technology to remove bacteria and diseased tissues.
