Dangers & Symptoms of Gum Disease in San Pedro, CA

Is Gum Disease Affecting Your Health?

A common oral problem affecting much of the nation’s population, gum disease is a progressive condition with the power to irreparably damage your mouth and body. Though it is widespread, many people are living with the condition completely unaware.

Visiting Dr. Kayvon Javid and Dr. Mariam Nadi regularly for periodontal evaluations and checkups is vital for early identification and treatment of this devastating disease. Failing to treat gum disease only compounds the risk of greater oral complications like tooth and bone loss, as well as health concerns such as diabetes, heart attack and stroke.

Did You Know?

Nearly 65 million adults in the U.S. have some form of gum disease. Many do not even know they show symptoms.

The Progressive Stages of Gum Disease

stagesThe earliest stage of gum disease, gingivitis, is completely reversible if caught and treated early enough. The symptoms of gingivitis include inflamed, tender and bleeding gums. If allowed to progress, gingivitis develops into periodontitis – a stage characterized by early bone loss and destruction of the periodontal ligament. At this level, bacteria produce toxins that irreparably destroy the structures supporting the teeth.

Untreated periodontitis eventually leads to advanced periodontitis, where further bone deterioration occurs and teeth often exhibit mobility. The importance of treating gum disease as early as possible cannot be stressed enough. Eliminate future risks to your oral and overall health by scheduling your periodontal consultation with Dr. Javid or Dr. Nadi today.
