A common misconception that patients make is that teeth and gum tissue can become weak over time due to age. This is not true, teeth and gum tissue are only affected by the substances that the patient consumes and tends to leave on their teeth. Over the years, dental neglect can seriously affect teeth to the point where they can fall out and patients just find it an inconvenience, gross or uncomfortable, but it is really so much more than that. Dr Spector wants the patients that underestimate the dangers of having a missing tooth or teeth to listen and understand to the possible diseases that can become results of this.
Just to give patients a general idea, gum disease, otherwise known as periodontitis, is when the gum tissue becomes infected, changes color or bleeds and then recedes from the teeth. Irritated gum tissue becomes susceptible to decay and bacteria which causes the blood vessels in the mouth to become inflamed. These same blood vessels can travel to the heart chamber and affect the flow of blood and oxygen to and from the heart, this causes the heart to have to work harder to pump the needed blood and oxygen. Patients can easily develop high blood pressure as a result of this or even heart disease and heart attacks. Even the plaque buildup that sits in between the teeth can break off and travel to heart causing heart attacks, flossing plays a huge role in matters of the heart.
The heart is not the only body part that can be affected by gum disease, unfortunately the brain can fall victim to this as well. As the inflammation reaches the brain tissue, it can create permanent brain damage, disease and even strokes. We would not guess that gum disease could affect our mental health, but it is more than possible to develop these life- threatening complications.
Why Choose Dental Implants?
Dental implants are the leading tooth loss solution in the industry because of their natural ability to prevent gum disease and increase density in the bones of the teeth. Through a process called osseointegration, dental implants are accepted by the mouth as a functioning and real part of the oral system. Dental implants have the ability to be as strong as patient’s natural teeth, with no extra maintenance required in addition to the fact that they are comprised of non- decay material. Considering dental implants work as the perfect replacement teeth, patients have the ability to bite, chew, speak and smile without discomfort or pain, and with more confidence than they have felt in years. These flawless and healthy teeth help patient’s look more rested and youthful and can even reduce appearance of wrinkles.
