What Causes Gum Disease?
Poor Brushing and FlossingBacteria naturally accumulate in your mouth from what you eat and drink, forming plaque on your teeth. Good brushing and flossing habits help you rid your smile of plaque caused by bacteria. Plaque returns quickly. If you don't brush twice a day and floss daily, accumulated plaque can turn into stubborn tartar.
Missed Dental Cleanings
Tartar cannot be removed with simple brushing and flossing habits. Once tarter forms, you'll need a professional dental cleaning to effectively remove the hardened material that's hidden under your gums. This is why bi-annual dental cleanings are essential.
The mildest form of gum disease is gingivitis. When tartar builds up below your gum line for too long and to a large degree, inflammation and irritation can be seen at the base of your teeth, indicating gingivitis. If it is not treated, gingivitis can turn into more severe gum disease.
Did You Know?
Periodontal disease has a negative impact on many aspects of your overall health. This includes high blood pressure: people with gum disease are 20% less likely to have a healthy blood pressure range than those with healthy gums. In addition, gum disease may increase a person's risk for respiratory disease, Alzheimer's disease, and certain types of cancers.
Improve Your Quality of Life Request a Consultation
Pain from the symptoms of gum disease can affect your overall happiness and quality of life. Periodontal disease can also affect your confidence and relationships.
Studies have found that those with periodontal disease are often afraid to smile and communicate with others because of their negative symptoms. Bad breath, crooked teeth, tooth loss, and other concerns can lead to low confidence, impairing a patient's quality of life.
The Treatment Options For Gum Disease
In the early stages, treating gum disease may be as easy as coming into either our Westchase or Carrollwood, FL, office for a professional cleaning and improving your daily oral care routine. If you need more advanced care, we offer several treatment options:
Brushing twice daily and flossing once daily can help prevent the buildup of plaque and bacteria that can lead to gum disease.
Treating Tooth Loss With Dental Implants
Provide a Sturdy Base
Dental implants are titanium posts that, once fused with the jawbone, become part of your anatomy and provide a sturdy base for your new restoration.
While your restorations may need to be replaced, your dental implants can last a lifetime when cared for properly.
Support Different Restorations
After healing, dental implants can support a crown for single-tooth replacement, a bridge for a few missing teeth, or even a full set of dentures for widespread tooth loss.
Prevent Further Issues
Missing teeth can cause serious repercussions for your oral health, like tooth misalignment, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, and bone atrophy. Dental implants and restorations prevent these oral health issues from developing.
Are You Looking for Quality Preventative or Restorative Dental Care? Contact Tampa Dental Wellness Today
When addressed in a timely manner, our dentists can prevent gum disease from progressing to the point where teeth become loose or fall out; however, if you have missing teeth, we can also place dental implants and restorations.
Dr. Amy Creech-Gionis has undergone specialty training in implantology and IV sedation. She is able to complete every step of your dental implant procedure, from placing the implant to attaching the restoration. Her expert care ensures each patient receives the highest quality results.
