Take Good Care Of Your Smile By Taking Care Of Your Gums
Posted September 20, 2017 by Wager-Evans Dental
A mouth that is cavity-free is not always a mouth that could be considered problem-free. If you have poor gum health, you face a potentially serious issue. If gum disease has the opportunity to worsen, you can develop problems with dental support, and suffer tooth loss later in life. Your dentist will take time during a regular dental visit to check on the condition of your periodontal tissue. However, you can also keep an eye out for potential problems. Look out for gums that appear swollen or red, and be mindful of sensitivity. If you find yourself bleeding more easily when you brush, this can also be a sign of trouble.
Your dentist can supply you with a Perio Tray, which will help you combat poor gum health. With a Perio Tray, you can target unhealthy gums, and deal with a potential infection. Over time, this can help you reverse gingivitis, and restore your gums. If you have more advanced periodontal issues, you should know that you may need more specialized care.
If you fail to stop gum disease before it grows more severe, you can suffer enduring issues. Advanced gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss for adults – if you have this condition, and are not having your needs addressed, you could find yourself needing to replace lost teeth. If you are in this situation, your dentist can help you by recommending the appropriate prosthetic support. If you qualify for dental implants, you can enjoy permanent prosthetic care.
