You aren’t going to need periodontal care if your smile is in amazing condition. When you’re brushing and flossing correctly, chances are good you’re just fine (particularly if you are also very good about keeping your preventive cleanings and checkups scheduled, too). Here’s when you are going to need this type of care: When gum disease shows up and you really don’t want to deal with the serious consequences. Not sure what they are? Let’s review.
You Don’t Want Lifelong Gum Disease
First, patients often fail to recognize that the very initial phase of gum disease is something we can cure with periodontal care. However, beyond that moment (it’s called gingivitis), you may find yourself dealing with gum care for the rest of your life. That’s because we cannot get rid of it once it’s become so advanced. We can only help you minimize it throughout your life with management.
You Don’t Want To Lose Your Teeth
Not interested in losing your teeth? Then, it may be time for periodontal care. When your gums are inflamed and/or infected, remember that gum disease is actually quite destructive. Unless you do something to stop it and help heal your tissues, it can lead to tooth loss and can even harm your ligaments and jawbone tissue!
You Don’t Want Implants To Fail
Are you someone who is wearing implants? If so, then you will most certainly want to come in for periodontal care, as well! Just like gum disease can destroy gum tissue and more, leading to tooth loss, it can destroy the support that your implants rely on, therefore resulting in implant failure.
