No one is immune to periodontal disease. Taking care of your teeth and gums is imperative in ensuring you keep your mouth healthy, and vibrant, for as long as possible. Periodontal Associates in Mississauga are dedicated to working with their patients, to ensure their dental care involves a long term plan, and is tailored to their individual needs. Keeping gums in top condition is so important for many reasons – the top reason being, gum disease remains the leading cause of tooth loss in adults.
If you are a smoker, you are at a higher risk for periodontal disease. Periodontal Associates in Mississauga will be able to talk to you about the damage smoking may have caused to you gums. Smokers are a high risk group as smoking causes a lack of oxygen in the bloodstream. So if you’ve had an infection in your mouth, or any other issue with your gums, the lack of oxygen in the blood makes it more difficult for the infection to heal. Smoking also increases dental plaque, and speeds up the effects of periodontal disease.
For non – smokers, periodontal disease often has slow moving symptoms and that’s why creating a long-term maintenance plan is so important in maintaining oral health. Learning how to property brush your gums, teeth and tongue are all part of the process. Aggressive brushing leads to receding gum lines and will often induce blood from the rapid motion. Mississauga Periodontal Associates know, and understand, how each part of the mouth needs to be cleaned and cared for to reduce swollen gums and eliminate bleeding.
