Dedicating Time And Attention To Treating Poor Gum Health

If you leave poor gum health unaddressed today, you can create the potential for issues with your oral health, and your general health, in the future. The reason for concern with your general health is that gum disease has been pointed to as having possible links with issues like heart disease and diabetes, among others. The condition, if it grows sufficiently severe, can lead to problems that increase your risk for tooth loss. Because advanced gum disease can be managed but not treated, you should make sure that signs of periodontal trouble are investigated by your dentist.

How Do I Know When Something Is Wrong With My Periodontal Health?

So what should you be looking for when you are checking for signs something may be wrong with your gums? Periodontal tissue with a tendency to bleed can be a sign of poor periodontal health, as well as sensitivity, swelling, and redness. Gum disease can also cause you to have bad breath, certainly something people would prefer to avoid. Periodontitis, or advanced gum disease, can lead to teeth becoming loose.

Undergoing An Ultrasonic Scaling

Your dentist can work with you when you have signs of periodontal trouble, in order to help manage your condition and keep you in the best possible oral health. If you have gingivitis, and you seek treatment, your dentist can help you fight back by performing an ultrasonic scaling. This is not like your typical cleaning you receive during a dental checkup. This involves removing bacteria from teeth underneath your gum line. This can reverse the condition, and restore your periodontal tissue to good health.
