Ignoring Signs Of Gum Disease Could Lead To Bigger Problems
Posted March 2, 2018 by Wager-Evans Dental
You might not realize it, but the health of your gums can play a big part in your risk for tooth loss, and may even influence your risk for heart disease! Because periodontal health can be so important to your well-being, you should be on the lookout for possible signs of trouble. You may notice that your gums bleed easily whenever you are practicing your brushing and flossing habits. You could also see the tissue becoming red, or swollen. These problems can be indicators that you have a periodontal infection. Bringing this problem to your dentist’s attention can lead to treatment – in fact, your dentist can equip you with a Perio Tray, so you can directly attack an infection in your gums.
A Perio Tray is custom-made, based on an impression of your mouth, so it will fit comfortably. This appliance can allow you to comfortably administer the appropriate treatment for your gum disease directly to infected areas. This can require as little as a few minutes of treatment each day, and it can lead to a reversal of your infection.
You can avoid gum disease by practicing smart oral care. When it comes to daily care, make sure you keep up with your brushing and flossing habits, to keep your smile safe from harmful bacteria. You should also enjoy professional preventive dental care on a routine basis. These checkups give your dentist a chance to look for possible problems, and recommend the appropriate course of action, when something is identified.
At Wager-Evans Dental, you can count on expert care when you deal with an issue like gum disease. When symptoms present themselves, your dentist can provide you with a Perio Tray, a custom appliance that allows you to comfortably administer treatment for your gums at home.
