Gum disease and systemic diseases concern your Kennesaw dentist

Although we consistently hear about products designed to handle oral care, gum disease is commonly disregarded as a serious oral problem. In fact, the CDC reports that half of all American adults will develop gum disease at some point in time. The older we get, the higher these statistics climb, reaching over 70 percent after the age of 65. At 32 Dental, we take gum disease seriously, and act quickly to treat any signs of this hazardous oral condition.

You see, the presence of gum disease for any length of time could affect systemic diseases that rob you of optimal health and wellbeing. In our Kennesaw dental practice, we seek to guard our patients' health by working to prevent the onset of gum disease. We encourage patients to brush and floss at least twice a day, demonstrating the proper brushing techniques when needed. The goal of brushing is not only to leave teeth shiny and your breath fresh, but also to remove the bacteria that can wreak havoc on both the gums and the body.

The mouth-body connection

Results of scientific research point to inflammation as the connection between bacteria and systemic conditions linked to gum disease. Bacteria live at and below the gum line and consume sugars left behind after meals and snacks. Consequently, an acid waste is released where it can continually eat away healthy gum tissue. Because of this process, the body's natural inflammatory response kicks in. Though caused by gum disease, our inflammatory response affects the whole body.

A second pathway for oral bacteria to affect the body is through the blood. Bacteria are alive and well in gum disease, a condition that breaks down healthy tissues to the point where blood can be noticed after brushing. Through the openings created, bacteria enter the bloodstream and travel to other vital organs. Researchers studying heart disease have identified periodontal bacteria where one might least expect it, in atherosclerotic plaque, the type that clogs the arteries in the heart.

As research continues to indicate oral health affects overall health, we continue to work with patients on the prevention and treatment of gum disease. This harmful condition is easily recognized in its early stages during routine dental examinations, allowing us to perform conservative cleanings and treatment, which may include antibiotics. Early treatment stops gingivitis from progressing to full-blown gum disease, saving your beautiful smile as well as your health.

Gum disease is treatable, and we have the experience to provide successful treatment. Contact 32 Dental today for your dental examination.

    I've been seeing Dr. Breckley and Dr. Vo since they opened this practice, and I'm still a huge fan. I recently had some dental work done with them (like this morning). I've never doubted the doctors' abilities, and this experience was no exception. They are experts and are very good at their craft. I want to also mention the support staff, especially the women on the front desk. They are thorough, helpful, and so very nice. I've never experienced the follow-up and follow through at another practice as I have with them at 32 Dental. I always know what my bill will be. There are never any surprises, and that is so comforting in this day of American healthcare. :) I'll continue to refer my friends to them and patron their practice based on my experiences with them! Thanks!

    My 8 year old son had to have 2 teeth pulled because the babies just didn't want to let go. The whole procedure went amazing! My son was like "Wait we're done already? I didn't feel anything! Wow." I would definitely recommend this practice to anyone who wants both kids and adults to be taken care of at the same location!

    32 Dental was quick and kind. The office staff was efficient and the dentist was very thorough. He referred me to a specialist due to the type of root canal needed. He was able to find one available for the same day. I will definitely use them in the future.
