Taking Action To Prevent Periodontal Troubles
Posted June 27, 2018 by Wager-Evans Dental
Why is it so important to take action when you have periodontal troubles? When you suffer a cavity, the damage that results from decay can cause serious complications. You can reach a point where an infection spreads to your pulp, damages the living tissue housed in this space, and continues to spread to your jawbone. What happens when you let periodontal troubles escalate? You might not realize it, but the biggest risk factor when it comes to adult tooth loss concerns your gum health. Advanced periodontal infections lead to the destruction of bone and soft tissue that support your teeth. If you want to make sure that your gums stay healthy – and that your smile stays complete – make sure to communicate periodontal concerns to your Reno, NV dental practice.
Your dentist can address a cavity by removing the infected portion of your tooth. Once this occurs, they can provide you with a dental filling – or, when necessary, a dental crown – to make sure your tooth stays protected. Your dentist can help you fight gum disease by providing you with a Perio Tray. A Perio Tray gives you a custom-made oral insert, which makes it possible to apply treatment to your gums. Many patients will only need to use theirs daily for minutes at a time to see results.
Fighting cavities and gum disease involves smart preventive dental care. When you brush and floss, make sure you make an effort to clean your teeth at your gum line. When bacteria accumulate at the base of teeth, there is a real risk that an infection of your periodontal tissues will occur.
