Healthy Gums and Healthy You with Periodontal Treatment in Norwood, MA

February 25, 2015

185846113The oral-systemic connection is undeniable. What happens in your mouth doesn’t just stay in your mouth—and that’s not even considering the foods and beverages that nourish the rest of your body. The bacteria that lives in your mouth can spread to other organs, causing disease. More often than not, these bacteria gain entrance to the blood stream via your gums, which is why gum health is so important. Central Dental Associates in Norwood, MA, provides periodontal treatment to help you maintain healthy gums for a healthier you.

What is Gum or Periodontal Disease?

Gum disease is an inflammatory condition of the soft tissue surrounding teeth that occurs when tartar and plaque buildup spread beneath your gum line. This disease has both an early and a late stage condition.

The early stage is called gingivitis, as is marked by red or swollen gums that tend to bleed when you brush or floss. Gingivitis is often caused by inadequate oral hygiene, but is reversible with professional periodontal treatment and improved oral hygiene. The dentists and dental hygienists at Central Dental will show you how to properly brush and floss your teeth, so you can avoid gingivitis.

The latter stage of gum disease is called periodontitis. This more advanced condition occurs when plaque buildup goes unchecked and the toxins produced by the bacteria in plaque irritate your gums and eventually begin to destroy the tissues and bone that support your teeth. Your gums may even separate from your teeth, forming deep pockets that are susceptible to infection. As the infection progresses, the pockets deepen further and even more gum tissue and bone are destroyed.

At Central Dental, we perform scaling and root planing to remove plaque and tartar from your teeth and the periodontal pockets that may have developed in the gums.

Embrace Healthy Gums in 2014!

shutterstock_144914185Did you know that your gums are just as, if not more, important as your teeth are when it comes to having a healthy smile? We are sure you hear your dentist stress the importance of taking care of your gums, and it may go in one ear and out the other. But, really, taking excellent care of your gums is a crucial role in having a great smile, and our experienced doctors are here to make sure you receive top notch treatment!

Believe it or not, over 80% of people are living with some form of gum disease. What’s even scarier is the fact that you’re likely to be living with it yourself, and you are not aware of it. There are many things that cause you to get gum disease, like excessive tobacco use, excessive alcohol consumption, certain medications, genetics, and so on. Though it may not seem like a big deal, if you don’t take care of you gums, a lot more serious things can start to affect your body, like respiratory complications, heart disease, stroke, bone loss, tooth loss, and much more. The good thing, however, is that gum disease is completely reversible if caught early enough.

A couple of things we do to take care of you gum disease is scaling and root planing. We will be able to remove the hardened plaque from your teeth, as well as being able to get to the nitty gritty bacteria on your teeth. We will also educate you on the importance of regular flossing and brushing.

One thing you can do to prevent gum disease occurring in your mouth is to brush and floss your teeth at least twice a day, though after every meal is ideal. Flossing is a great tool to get the excess food from between your teeth, that way they can’t sit and continue to attract bacteria. Also, you may want to invest in a good mouthwash. Look for a mouthwash that is antibacterial and has fluoride. That way, it can kill the remaining bacteria the toothbrush couldn’t get, while the fluoride helps strengthen your teeth!

With these few and simple tips, as well as regular appointments with our awesome doctors, there is no doubt you will have a beautiful smile you can be proud of! If you’d like to make an appointment to get your gums in the right shape, make an appointment today!
