Periodontist services London Ontario
Have you ever spit out a little blood when brushing your teeth? If it happens regularly, it could be a warning sign that you have some level of gum disease or periodontitis.
If your dentist has mentioned that you have periodontal (or gum) disease, you are not alone. Many Canadians have some form of this problem.
Periodontal diseases can range from simple gum inflammation to a serious decaying of the soft tissue, gums and even the bone that supports your teeth. In more serious cases, you can lose your teeth.
Gum disease can not only affect your teeth, it can severely impact the health of the rest of your body resulting in diseases like diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, pneumonia, and cancer.
In its mild form, gum disease is called gingivitis. Your gums are infected, but they are still treatable through simple oral hygiene and regular dental visits.
However, if the infection in your gums is not treated in time, the infection can go below the gum line into the jawbone. When infection goes below the gum line it is considered to be quite serious. The serious form of gum disease is called periodontitis.
Both gingivitis and periodontitis are to be taken seriously, since they can be a factor in serious health problems in the body. So, if you have any symptoms you should see a periodontist as soon as possible.
