We can explore the possibilities of managing periodontal gum problems with a combination of non-surgical, highly effective Self-Care Strategies.

Non Surgical Gum Therapy

Which is the most common disease in the United States?

Is it:

1. heart disease?

2. stroke?

3. cancer?

4. Gum Disease?

Many people are surprised to learn that gum disease is more common than heart disease, stroke, cancer and Alzheimer's combined!

The good news is that unlike those other diseases, gum disease is easily prevented and treated.

Gum disease is an infection of the gums and bone surrounding the teeth. Often silent and painless, this type of infection cannot be eliminated by the immune system with out the help of a dental intervention.

Gum disease usually manifests early in life and slowly progresses until the gums and bone are seriously damaged. Untreated gum disease is a major cause of Bad breath, and eventual adult tooth loss.

Recent research has proven that periodontal infection is more serious than originally believed.

The bacteria that infect the gums and bone are carried to all other areas of the body. If untreated, periodontal infection has been proven to increase your risk of developing many other diseases :

  • Heart disease is increased 150%
  • Stroke 300%
  • Premature birth and low birth weight babies 700%
  • Osteoporosis 200%
  • Respiratory infections are increased by 500%
  • Insulin control in diabetics is affected by periodontal infection

Of course, these are just known associations between gum disease and other medical conditions. Links to other chronic conditions are likely to be proven.

Undiagnosed and untreated gum disease is a major obstacle to optimal health for a large percentage of the population.

Fortunately, modern dental medicine has the solution to eliminate periodontal infection and stimulate repair of the damaged gum and bone.

At an early appointment, we can accomplish the first step in assessing the degree of your gum disease involvement, when we measure the depth of the periodontal pockets that may have formed as your gum problem has progressed.

At subsequent appointments we will teach you powerful self-care strategies for treating your periodontal infection and lower your risk of developing systemic complications.

All of us at Yellow Springs Dental Care, feel oursevles fortuanate to be able to provide you with the very best that modern dentistry has available for looking after both your overall and oral health. We are proud to be one of the few dental offices using modulated periodontal therapy. Using this approach working together with your daily regimen of self-care we can eliminate periodontal infection.
