Periodontal Health

Best Dentist Miami Periodontal HealthGood general health cannot exist without good periodontal health.

Periodontal disease is a phenomenon caused by oral bacteria, and their metabolic toxins, as they invade the deeper supporting tissues surrounding your teeth. The body responds by initiating an inflammatory cascade that eventually results in local oral tissue destruction. This inflamed tissue is, by nature, highly vascular and is said to serve as a portal of entry into the systemic, or bodily, circulation. Simply said, the initial periodontal inflammation can be processed further in your liver, resulting in a second set of inflammatory signals that later produce elevated levels of inflammation throughout your body.

Systemic inflammation is commonly known to be associated with unsatisfactory health and unhealthy living. Chronic levels of inflammation are strongly correlated with systemic conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, cancer, arthritis, dementia, and many other age-related diseases.

There is an increase in scientific studies and literature linking the inflammation associated with periodontal disease with that of chronic systemic conditions, leading to an exacerbation of these.

Poor oral hygiene and periodontal disease can aggravate several health conditions. Here are a few:

  • Stroke, respiratory infections, heart disease, severe osteopenia, uncontrolled diabetes, preterm or low birth weight babies.

Although controllable, periodontal disease is an incurable bacterial infection of the gingival tissues (gum). If left untreated it may, over time, destroy the support structures that hold your teeth in place. The bacteria in dental plaque is the main cause of gum disease. Routine brushing and flossing will control, and, or prevent most periodontal conditions.
