It’s no secret that American families are busier than ever. Some struggle to even sit down together and share a meal at the same time because of meetings, sports and other activities. Free time is at a premium and when you have some, the last thing you want to do is visit a periodontist for your gum issues. Unfortunately, putting off treatment for periodontal disease will only lead to problems that will consume even more of your precious time to treat.
Periodontal disease begins with slight changes in your mouth. You may not notice them at first or realize that they are a clue that something worse is happening. Bleeding, red or puffy gums are your body’s way of letting you know that there is an issue with your oral health that shouldn’t be ignored.
Unlike other conditions, periodontal disease will not improve on it’s own. Once the dangerous bacteria have caused the infection in your gums, only professional treatment will be able to cure it and repair the damage it has caused.
Dangers of untreated periodontal disease include:
- Gum Recession
- Bone Loss
- Tooth Loss
- Heart Disease
- Pre-Term Pregnancy
