Periodontal Disease Affects Your Oral & General Health

Periodontal disease is an infection of the gums and tissues that hold your teeth in place. Multiple studies have shown a link between gum disease and health. Poor oral hygiene and gum disease are linked to heart disease, diabetes, stroke, and other health problems.

The bacteria in the mouth results in the growth of plaque and tartar on the teeth and below the gumline. Without regular professional cleaning and good oral hygiene at home, the gum tissue can become infected and begin to recede. As periodontal disease becomes more advanced, it can lead to bleeding gums, pain when chewing, and eventually tooth loss.

Signs of Gum Disease

Gum disease is relatively common. Approximately 47% of adults in the United States have some form of gum disease. This number rises to 70% among adults over the age of 65. In addition to poor oral hygiene, a number of other factors may contribute to periodontal disease, such as diabetes, hormonal changes in women, certain medications, and a genetic predisposition to gum disease.

The symptoms of gum disease include:

  • Gums that are red or swollen
  • Tender gums
  • Bleeding gums
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Bad breath, even with good brushing and flossing
  • Pain when chewing
  • Receding gums
  • Loose teeth

Regular visits to our office allow us to monitor your dental health and recognize gum disease in its earliest stages. This enables us to provide gum treatments in Gilroy early, prevent tooth loss, and preserve the health of your teeth and gums.

If you have noticed any of the signs of gum disease, please call (408) 317-7300 for an appointment.
