Your teeth are important, but they are not the only thing that matters in your mouth. We must remember our teeth are attached to a body. And sometimes certain conditions manifest themselves in the mouth. These include diabetes, cancer, and a wide range of diseases and/or syndromes we won’t mention here. Rest assured, we do check you for these conditions.
Now back to teeth. There are multiple ways to lose a tooth. A cavity. An unwanted blow to the face. Another way a tooth is lost is due to periodontal disease. Periodontal disease (periodontitis) is chronic inflammation of the gums and bone that support our teeth. Similarly to high blood pressure or high cholesterol, periodontal disease is not painful. But there are symptoms such as red, puffy gums, bleeding of the gums, gum recession, loose or mobile teeth, to name a few. Depending on the severity of the condition, more frequent cleanings and even “gum surgery” may be necessary. If uncontrolled for long periods of time, bone will be lost around the tooth, the tooth becomes loose, and then eventually falls out or needs to be removed. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in 2012 nearly one out of every two Americans 30 years and older have periodontal disease. Our team is here to help you not become a statistic!

Your mouth goes through many changes in your lifetime. One major dental milestone that usually takes place between the ages of 17 and 21 is the appearance of your third molars.
