Every person’s mouth provides a cozy home for over 600 types of bacteria. If you take good care of your teeth and gums, they shouldn’t impact your health. However, if you have gum disease, bacteria can enter your bloodstream through your gums and cause troubles. We treat gum disease at The Lewisville Dentist.
The first sign of gingivitis is swollen, sore gums.
Gingivitis is Stage 1 gum disease. We routinely discover gingivitis in patients who are not even aware that they have it.
It is not normal for gums to bleed when they are brushed or flossed. Sore, swollen, or bleeding gums are a warning that something is out of order.
One of every ten American adults is likely to get some form of gum disease by the time they’re sixty-four years old. It is a leading cause of tooth loss, and is associated with health issues like diabetes and heart disease.
If you are showing any signs of gum disease at all, let us know at The Lewisville Dentist. We provide effective gum disease treatment. Other services include a full range of family dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today.
