Periodontal Disease Is Linked To Systemic Diseases

gum disease treatment Seattle

Gum disease is a leading cause of tooth loss among adults. Nearly half of Americans over the age of thirty have gum disease in some form. Fortunately, it’s a treatable condition at Advanced Cosmetic Implant and Laser Dentistry in Seattle.

What is gum disease?

Gum disease is inflammation and infection of the soft tissue that holds your teeth in their sockets. It starts with inflammation. Gums become swollen and tender.

Early stage gum disease is called gingivitis. If it progresses, the gums pull away from the teeth, developing pockets. This more severe condition is called periodontitis or periodontal disease.

Signs of gum disease include:

  • Swollen gums
  • Receding gums
  • A change in the color of gums
  • Loose or shifting teeth
  • Pain and tenderness
  • Changes in your bite

As serious as gum disease is on its own, it also puts you at risk of conditions like heart disease. The good news is that gum disease is 100% preventable with regular brushing and flossing, and dental checkups.
