Dentist in Clinton area describes the pitfalls of gum disease

Drs. Robert Sexauer and Krystal Gillis are holistic dentists in the Clinton area who are committed to providing total body wellness to their patients. We help the entire family in seeking quality, comprehensive dental solutions that are affordable, safe, and effective.

Many patients see a dentist regularly for check-ups, while others wait until there is a serious problem. Patients who are not proactive about their dental care may end up dealing with gum disease, often referred to as periodontal disease. This inflammatory problem results from the development of bacteria in the mouth, often caused by poor oral hygiene habits.

Gum disease is a serious condition and should not be taken lightly. This disease can affect the entire smile, as well as the health and wellness of the body due to the oral systemic connection. The oral systemic connection is the link between the mouth and the body. When bacteria are present in the oral cavity, they can carry though the bloodstream to the rest of the body and can affect the heart and other organs. This puts patients at risk for conditions such as diabetes, strokes, and heart disease.

Gum disease can also wreak havoc within the smile. The condition can result in the loss of bone, causing teeth to become loose and sometimes even fall out. This loss requires expensive restorations to repair. Additionally, the gum tissue can shrink, bleed, and become extremely painful. Irreversible damage can affect the smile in dramatic ways, and our dental team wants to help keep patients from having to experience these problems with proper education.

Patients need to understand the importance of quality dental care and keeping their smile healthy. This is why Robert Sexauer, DDS and Krystal Gillis, DDS are dedicated to offering dental care for all family members in a holistic manner. We encourage new patients to contact our practice to learn how essential brushing, flossing, and regular dental appointments can be for the overall health and wellness of not only the mouth but the entire body!
