Periodontics in Dalton, GA

When people think of dental health problems the first things that come to mind probably revolve around the teeth, such as tooth decay or a crooked smile. While it is important to take care of any issues with the teeth, there’s another important part of the mouth that shouldn’t be neglected – the gums. All too often people forget the importance of protecting the health of their gums, and the results can be catastrophic. This is why it’s important for individuals to visit out periodontists in Dalton to make sure that their gums are healthy, and have any underlying issues treated before it is too late.

The science of protecting and treating the gums is called periodontics. Periodontists aim to prevent gum disease, which occurs when plaque builds up on the gums. While most leftover bits of food can be brushed or flossed away, sometimes things get stuck in areas of the mouth that people can’t reach. As this residue builds up on the teeth and gums it forms plaque, which can only be removed by a dentist. If it is not removed and simple left to fester than it will irritate the gums, causing them to bleed and pull away from the teeth. In extreme cases, gum disease can damage the soft tissue and bone that supports the teeth, causing people to lose them. Many individuals have probably heard the phrase “long in the tooth” to refer to someone who is getting older. This phrase comes from what teeth look like when the gums begin to recede from them, exposing more of the enamel. People who want to avoid sporting this look as they age should make sure to take care of their gums.

People should be checking their gums regularly to make sure that they look the way that they should. Gums should be a light pink color, not red or swollen. Furthermore, gums should not bleed during normal tooth brushing or flossing. When people visit our periodontists in Dalton, they will have their gums examined by professionals who will be able to spot the early signs of gum disease and treat it before it is allowed to progress. This can help people avoid tooth loss, bacterial infections and a number of other serious complications that could permanently damage their smile. Anyone who cares about the health of their gums should contact a periodontist in Dalton today.
