Treat Periodontal Disease Right Here In Fresno
One of the most common dental afflictions across the country is gum disease, which is said to be suffered from by as many as eighty-percent of Americans at one time or another. Gum disease (which is also called periodontal disease) is an inflammatory condition usually caused by bacteria – such as plaque – that can cause from bleeding of the gums to jaw deterioration in severe cases.
Bleeding of the gums is usually the first sign of periodontal disease, but there are other signs to look out for as well. If you are experiencing the following symptoms, or especially combinations of the following symptoms you may be suffering from a form of periodontal disease:
- Longer appearing teeth (which is caused by tissue deterioration around the teeth)
- Loose feeling teeth (which is usually also caused by tissue deterioration around the tooth)
- Pus that is around teeth near the gums
- Gums that appear to be pulling away from teeth
- Breath that is foul or bad smelling
- Gums that bleed easily, and/or frequently
Having gum disease can be a real problem, and can lead to other health problems too. In a number of recent studies, gum disease has been linked to a variety of problems including:
- Premature birth
- Complications with diabetes
- Heart disease
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
