SAN DIEGO, Oct. 3, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Drs. Lawrence Addleson, R. Douglas
Research curated by the American Academy of Periodontology indicates that nearly half of Americans have some form of gum disease, a condition caused by bacteria growth in the periodontal pockets. Additional data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggest that adults are at greater likelihood of developing gum disease as they age, with men and smokers especially at risk.
Without intervention from qualified dental professionals, patients who have gum disease in San Diego, CA, may notice gum recession, loose and shifting teeth and eventually lose their teeth due to widespread decay and infection. In fact, untreated and unmanaged gum disease is the main reason for people to lose teeth, which affects oral function and self-confidence. Plus, when gum disease in San Diego, CA, goes unnoticed or uncared for, it can affect the whole body. As the American Dental Hygienists' Association has noted, periodontal disease has been linked to heart conditions, diabetes, some cancers and low birth weight in babies with mothers who have the condition.
Men and women worried that they might have gum disease in San Diego, CA, can look for the early and mid-level warning signs. These include bad breath, a bad taste in the mouth, bleeding gums, receding gums, decay at the gum line and loosening teeth. Those that feel they might have gum disease in San Diego, CA, can make an appointment at the Art of Dentistry at 619-291-4325 for an appointment to discuss minimally invasive treatments involving lasers and other high-tech service solutions.
