While high-tech in nature, dental implants are actually more tooth-saving than traditional bridgework since implants do not rely on neighboring teeth for support. Dentures, bridges or individual teeth mounted to the implants won’t slip or shift in your mouth. With dental implants you will chew better, speak better, and perhaps best of all... you’ll gain a gorgeous new smile that will boost your confidence!
Periodontal diseases are a series of chronic bacterial infections. Poor oral hygiene, genetics, age, and smoking are risk factors for developing periodontitis. Connections have been established between diabetes, heart disease, prenatal complications, and pulmonary disease. Optimizing your oral health is critical to your overall well-being, and Advanced Family Dental is here to make sure that happens!
What Our Patients Say
Spotlight on Periodontal Disease
Periodontal Disease (also known as Pyorrhea) is an infection of the gums and bone that hold your teeth in place. Left untreated, it causes loss of the bone anchoring your teeth- and subsequent loss of the teeth.
According to the American Dental Association, Periodontal Disease is the #1 cause of tooth loss in the United States.
Periodontal Disease & Heart Disease
Did you know that people with gum disease are FOUR times more likely to be afflicted with Heart Disease than people without gum disease?
That’s right. Recent studies at The University of Minnesota confirm that a chronic infection in your mouth (which is what Periodontal Disease is) allows the bacteria to enter your blood stream. These bacteria may cause blood clots and block your arteries, possibly even triggering a heart attack.
Other studies have shown that plaque bacteria entering the bloodstream through infected gums may also cause a potentially fatal heart disease called infective endocarditis. This is a bacterial infection which causes the sac around the heart to become inflamed.
Reduce Your Health Risks
How can you reduce your risks of serious health ailments that may be due to Periodontal Disease?
- Have regular exams at our office.
- Have your teeth cleaned AT LEAST twice a year- sometimes more frequently if you build up plaque quickly.
- Brush and floss regularly... AND remember to see us often!
