Gum Disease : The Top Cause of Tooth Loss

Gum disease can impact everything from your teeth to the health of your heart. Reversing the infection has shown to boost your overall wellness and immune system, thereby reducing the risk of problems like heart attack, stroke and even diabetes, just to name a few.

Unfortunately, up to 80% of adults in Hoppers Crossing have some form of gum disease. This infection is caused by bacterial plaque that collects under the gumline.

At Hoppers Crossing Dental, we help you gain control over swollen, bleeding gums before you must sacrifice your entire smile.

During your exam, we will use a small tool to measure the levels of gum and bone attachment around each tooth. X-rays are also used to spot any areas of bone loss or tartar build-up below the gumlines.

If disease is present, a deep cleaning is recommended to remove the soft and calcified bacteria causing the infection. Afterward, it becomes easier for you to maintain through brushing, flossing and routine scale and cleans.

Talk to your dentist about any underlying medical problems that you may have. You might just be surprised to find out how it could be putting you at risk of developing an oral infection. Together, we can work to improve your smile’s health so that it’s easier for you to address other concerns.
