Treating Gum Disease

Treating gum disease is important because there are various complications which can arise throughout the body if this disease is left untreated. There is a strong relationship between gum disease and:
1. Low-weight pre-term babies
2. Diabetes
3. Heart disease and stroke
4. Alzheimer’s
5. Arthritis
6. Lung disease
By seeing a specialist in gum disease called a PERIODONTIST and getting treatment, you lower your risk of developing any of the above mentioned diseases in addition to helping keep your teeth for life. As well, by seeing a periodontist, you will be tested for other diseases which can manifest in the gums such as LEUKEMIA. Periodontists can check for oral cancer, such s MELANOMA, which can also show up on the gum tissues.
