When I was younger, I remember watching cartoons on the TV. One stereotype I remember seeing repeatedly involves a grandmother or a grandfather; either one of them would have fake teeth. The main image I have engraved in my head is the teeth sitting in a cup of water waiting to be used again. My parents would tell me “you see that? You want to keep your teeth right? Do not eat so much candy and always brush your teeth.” I was so scared of losing my teeth; I made sure to take care of my teeth to the best of my abilities. However for some of you, it may be too late to prevent tooth loss. 7 Day Dental offers a wide variety of services to our patients, and we have what you are looking for.
Did you know that tooth loss is related to gum disease also known as Periodontal Disease? Many people are not aware of the dangers of periodontal disease or even if they have the disease or not. Where did this disease come from? First of all, why do we all brush our teeth and floss? Well, I hope that you all are brushing. The purpose of this is the removal of bacteria on the surfaces of our mouths. If the bacteria stays for too long, it will harden and become tartar. Tartar cannot be cleaned by our tooth brush or floss; this is when a professional is needed to help with deep cleaning. Here are many different symptoms of periodontal disease: bad breath, red or swollen gums, sensitive teeth, painful chewing, bleeding gums and loose teeth. Periodontal disease can be affect anyone. However, you can put yourself in higher risk if you smoke or have diabetes. Even though periodontal disease can affect anyone, it is more common for males to be affected and for those in their 30’s or 40’s. For teenagers, they then to suffer from gingivitis, which is a milder form of periodontal disease.
