What Are The Consequences Of Periodontal Disease?

Posted on 2/8/2021 by Dr. Yokoyama
What Are The Consequences Of Periodontal Disease?According to the American Dental Association (ADA), periodontal disease is one of the main causes of tooth loss. If left untreated, this bacterial infection will quickly cause damage to the support system of your teeth. Even more surprisingly, it is fairly painless, which means it is often easy for it to go overlooked for a long period of time. Because of this, we strongly recommend regular dental checkups and cleanings for your teeth to help minimize the damaging effects of periodontal disease. This can help ensure the best possible outcome for your beautiful and healthy smile.

Periodontal Disease Can Harm Your Heart

The periodontal disease is a state of chronic inflammation, meaning that it is secreting inflammatory mediators all day, every day. These components of inflammation travel through the bloodstream and can migrate to multiple tissues in your body, including your heart. This disease can considerably increase the risk of suffering from a cardiac event, such as angina pectoris or a heart attack.

If You Are Pregnant, You Need to Be Careful About Periodontal Disease

One of the main inflammatory mediators in this pathology are the prostaglandins. These prostaglandins have the ability to trigger uterine contractions prematurely, unfortunately increasing the risk of starting preterm labor. Therefore, it is important that if you are going to have a baby, you take proper care of your oral health - especially if you have periodontal disease.

Your Beautiful Smile Might Be In Danger

If you care about your aesthetics, then it is important that you know that periodontal disease progressively weakens the support of your teeth. Although it may seem exaggerated, you could lose one or more if you do not take action in time. Do not compromise your health unnecessarily; instead, we can provide you with the best care and we will give you the most optimal treatments for you.

This Doctor is a true healer!

I had a wonderful opportunity to see Dr. Bembey! She really knows her stuff! I felt like she had my best interests in mind and she took her time and listened with an open mind and an open heart. I have some really tough dental issues, and she completely understood everything that I was going through and was able to guide me in the right direction. So great full of for her kindness and compassion.
