Periodontal Disease

What is periodontal disease?

Nearly fifty percent of all adults have some degree of periodontal disease. Although the majority of these individuals likely have no idea they have the condition. Periodontal disease also referred to as gum disease is caused by a bacterial contagion in the gums, bone and also the periodontal ligament. [These are the connective fibers that stabilize the teeth, securing them to the jaw.]

Periodontal disease for the most part is a quiet and pain free condition that is until it progresses to the advanced phase. When periodontal disease is not treated, the symptoms will include the following:

Unrelenting halitosis continual bad breath;

Persistent bleeding gums during and after brushing your teeth;

Inflamed, sore and red tinted gums

Gums that are receding or have come away from the teeth

Teeth that are loose or separating from one another

Pus that is found adjacent to the gum and teeth

An abnormality in your bite. A noticeable difference in how your teeth are fitting together when together. King Street Dental is especially outfitted to treat and safeguard you from any indication of periodontal disease.

How does the association between heart disease and periodontal disease affect me?

A healthy heart and healthy gums are an important combination for sustaining a healthy body overall. Since periodontal disease is a bacterial contagion, periodontal bacteria could potentially make its way into the blood stream, transferring into your vital organs and set new infections into motion. When you treat periodontal disease, you are doing something that is so crucial for quality health and a large step toward the thwarting and regulating the more common risk factors contributing to heart disease.

How can periodontal disease elevate my chances of developing heart disease?

There are a few theories which attempt to explain the relation between heart disease and periodontal disease. One hypothesis is that oral bacteria will affect the heart as it enters the blood supply. It fastens itself to fatty plaque deposits within the coronary heart arteries contributing to the formation of clotting.

Coronary artery disease is distinguished by the thickening walls of coronary arteries because of the accumulation of fatty proteins. Blood clots have the tendency to limit the ordinary flow of blood, thwarting the quantities of essential nutrients and oxygenation necessary for the heart to work correctly. The end result could be myocardial infarction or heart attacks.

Medical experts researching the topic of periodontal disease have revealed their findings that those persons suffering from periodontal disease have nearly double the risk of contracting coronary artery disease as those who do not have periodontal disease.

There are connections between periodontal disease and further significant health issues like respiratory illnesses, diabetes, osteoporosis, and for pregnant women, early births and malnourished babies. It is vital that you supply King Street Dental with a complete and precise medical background, specifically any issues with your heart that you know About. Together with our patient we can assist each other in safeguarding your gums and your general quality of health.
