Periodontal (gum) care is essential for maintaining healthy gums and preventing periodontal disease, which can lead to gum inflammation, gum recession, tooth loss, and other oral health problems. 






Your Gums Are The Foundation Of Your Oral Health!

Dr. Sarna and his team at Sarna Family Dental in Oakville, want to make sure that you understand the importance of a healthy smile. Ensuring the health of your gums is of utmost importance, as they serve as the foundation of your overall oral well-being. Neglecting gum health can lead to various oral issues such as gum disease, bad breath, and tooth loss. By maintaining optimal gum health through proper oral hygiene practices and regular dental check-ups, you can preserve the integrity of your entire oral cavity and enjoy a beautiful smile for years to come.

Periodontal disease, a silent and painless condition in its early stages, wreaks havoc on the attachment between your gums and the supporting bone that holds your teeth. This infectious disease burdens your body with a constant fight, gradually wearing down your immune system. Detecting periodontal disease early allows our team to intervene with less invasive treatments, promoting healthier gums and reducing overall health risks.

Periodontal disease, though slow in progression, causes inflammation of the gums and permanent damage to the supporting bone structure of your teeth. Regrettably, once the bone is lost, it cannot be regenerated. This affliction can be either widespread, affecting all teeth, or localized, targeting a single tooth. It is a condition that can affect individuals of all ethnicities, both men and women, from their teenage years through adulthood. During the early stages, one may remain oblivious to its presence.

Factors such as dental hygiene practices, medications, smoking, alcohol consumption, diet, general health, and heredity can contribute to its development. The initial symptoms may include swollen gums that bleed when brushing and an unpleasant breath odor. If left untreated, symptoms can progress to tooth mobility, shifting, and eventual tooth loss.

Research indicates that individuals with periodontal disease face double the risk of developing heart disease, potentially leading to heart attacks. The inflammation of the gums, a defining characteristic of periodontal disease, provides an entry point for plaque bacteria to enter the bloodstream. This bacteria then spreads throughout the body and may contribute to various health conditions. The repercussions of bacterial accumulation in the heart can be profoundly grave, and in some cases, even fatal.
