Gum Disease Causes Tooth Loss

The treatment of gum disease in Berkley at Borson Dental stops gums from being swollen, red and bleeding

Bacteria and acids are always present in your mouth, and they are constantly attacking your teeth and gums. When you are symptomatic with red, swollen and bleeding gums, you have gingivitis or gum disease in Berkley. If left untreated, gingivitis will cause the gums to recede from the teeth and weaken the jawbone. Such deterioration of the gums will eventually cause you to start losing teeth. When you meet people who have full or partial dentures, it is usually due to gum disease. The best way to avoid this happening to you is to have semi-annual dental checkups and cleanings. As a regular patient at Borson Dental, Dr. Richard Borson will be able to detect gingivitis in its early stages and get the disease stopped before it can do any permanent damage. In its later stages however, gum disease is much harder to reverse and you always have aching gums that cause constant discomfort. If you think your gums are becoming diseased, do not hesitate! Call us at (248) 398-5050 for a free consultation with Dr. Richard Borson so he can evaluate your condition and get you started on a treatment plan to save your teeth and gums.

Gingivitis Is An Insidious Gum Disease

Gingivitis in Berkley is easy to detect and to treat in its early stages at Borson Dental

Untreated gum disease or gingivitis will eventually result in loss of gum tissue, teeth and jawbone density. These changes, however, are not the only consequences of gingivitis. As gum disease destroys the basic building blocks of the mouth, it will also spread bad bacteria via the circulatory system to other vital organ systems of the body. In fact, gingivitis in Berkley has been directly linked to diabetes, heart disease, stroke and arthritis. At Borson Dental, Dr. Richard Borson may recommend deep cleanings for patients with gum disease based on the diagnosed progress of the disease. A deep cleaning allows him to remove pockets of harmful bacteria that are building up along with formations of tartar and plaque below the gum line. Such cleanings may require two or more visits to effectively clean both the upper and lower gums. For your own self-inspection, other signs or symptoms of gingivitis may be lumps, sores and abscesses on the outside of the gums. These additional indicators should never be dismissed as going away. They may, in fact, signify dental problems that are more serious than developing gum disease. One of the nastiest signs of gum disease in Berkley is persistent bad breath. This happens when food particles fall into bacteria filled pockets that have formed below the gum line. As you can see, gingivitis needs to be opposed by aggressive dental care that will cause its signs and symptoms to go away. Don’t let bad bacteria and the acids they cause from sugar and other foods destroy you dental health. Come see us at Borson Dental so you can get the periodontal care that you need and deserve. Simply call our 24/7 hotline at (248) 398-5050 and one of our call takers will be pleased to schedule a free consultation for you with Dr. Richard Borson.

"Do Not Take Gum Disease Lightly"

Regular dental checkups will eliminate concerns about acquiring gum disease in Berkley

“Please know that daily brushing and flossing of your teeth, especially after meals, protects your teeth and safeguards your gums as well. When brushing your teeth, make sure to avoid pushing your gums away from your teeth. In fact, if your teeth are sensitive along the gum line, it’s probably due to poor technique with the toothbrush. Aside from regular checkups and cleanings at Borson Dental, the most important thing you can do to avoid cavities and gum disease in Berkley is eat healthy and limit the amount of sugar in your diet. Sugar and bacteria team up to form acids in your mouth that eat away at tooth enamel and slip below the gum line to form pockets of a bacteria, acids and food particles. Such pockets expand with time as they eat away at gum tissue. Remember that the gums hold your teeth in place along with your jawbone and gingivitis will destroy both. I would love to be your personal hygienist, and I promise to take care of your teeth so that you will never have to worry about gum disease in Berkley.”
