Highly Effective Periodontal Therapies in Bristol, CT
Keep your gums healthy with professional care
Brush and floss daily to prevent periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults.
If you're like most adults currently living in the United States, chances are that you will be suffering from some level of periodontal disease, more commonly called gum disease. This can range from mild inflammation called gingivitis to more severe gum erosion and bone loss leading to tooth loss and other problems.
Recent studies link periodontal inflammation to higher risks of fatal heart attack, other cardiovascular diseases such as stroke, premature birth,alzheimer's disease and even some cancers. Smokers or people with diabetes have a much greater risk of developing periodontal disease by 3x. Smokers with diabetes increase their risk of tooth loss by 6X.
The best ways to make sure that your gums stay healthy is to schedule regular examinations with a Periodontist.
