Learning what leads to periodontal disease in Kennesaw

With any type of problem that may occur in life, prevention is always the best defense. Being proactive about the issue of periodontal disease holds immense benefit, and we work towards that end in our Kennesaw practice. With this oral condition linked to a variety of serious health concerns, learning what may cause gum disease helps our patients take preventative measures where possible.

Women and periodontal disease

In our Kennesaw practice, we regularly assess patients for the state of gums. Women, especially, have unique needs for optimal health. Throughout the life of a woman, there will be times when extra attention to specific health concerns will be necessary, particularly times when hormones are known to experience more dramatic changes. During puberty, pregnancy and nursing, and menopause, for instance, the hormonal fluctuations will affect various tissues in the body, increasing the risk of gum disease. Even oral contraceptives, which often aim to regulate hormones in young women, can affect gum tissue. In such instances, we like to keep a close eye on the oral condition to act quickly in treating any signs of gum disease.

Diabetes and periodontal disease

When you visit our Kennesaw practice, we encourage open discussion regarding health conditions such as diabetes. This disease, which produces irregularities in blood sugar levels, may develop from either insulin deficiency, or an inability to utilize this hormone correctly. Regardless of exact cause of diabetes, this disease has a direct link to gum disease in that diabetics are more susceptible to infection. Furthermore, the presence of gum disease makes diabetes more challenging to manage. We work closely with our patients to understand any outstanding health conditions that may impact the state of the gums or teeth.

The mouth is a part of the body that is not isolated from other organs. What happens in any part of the body will have an impact on the health of interconnected systems. Taking measures to promote overall health through proper nutrition and excellent oral hygiene protects the gums, and thus the rest of the body from the harmful effects of gum disease. On the other hand, combating gum disease at any state leads to a decreased risk of other disease processes and encourages optimal health.

To deal with the issue of periodontal disease, contact us for your assessment and treatment plan from your Kennesaw professional dentists.

    Dr. Vo and Dr. Breckly are absolutely fantastic! Never worry about another painful trip to the dentist if you are going to see them. They make sure you are never in any pain throughout the entire procedure. I just had my wisdom teeth removed and Dr. Vo did a fabulous job, as always. I had four impacted wisdom teeth and they were out before I knew it. I was up and eating solid food the very same day, and could have been back at work if I needed to. My stitches fell out within a few days and everything healed up much faster than any of my friends who saw other doctors. I stayed awake for the procedure, and I would say that it definitely is much better than being put to sleep. It has a faster heal time and less discomfort. My face honestly didn't even swell. I've gone to Dr. Vo and Breckly for minor things before and they have always been amazing, but after my great experience with something more major, I know they are by far the two of the best dentists, I have ever seen.

    Dr. Vo and Dr. Berkley are the ONLY dentists we see. Dr. Vos taken care of my parents, my husband, our daughter and son, and myself for the past 7 years. We love the care and the personal relationship she establishes with her patients. She takes the time to get to know us, our families, our dental concerns, which is NOT the usual in the business.Thank you for everything. Dr. Berkley is very attentive and gently with my children. We came in for a cleaning yesterday and they did great under his medical care. The staff is extremely professional and willing to help. Amazing team. If you have been afraid of the dentist, check them out and theyll change your mind about dentistry.

    My family and I love Dr. Vo. I would suggest this practice to anyone who wants a dentist and staff that truly care about your health and will go above and beyond the typical dentist. I followed Dr. Vo from a previous office, and although this office is farther away, it is worth it because of how caring the staff is.

    Switched to 32 dental after Dr. Breckley left Dr. Goetees practice. Great staff, and nice space. They use the latest technologies and have K cups in the waiting room!

    Dr. Vo is fantastic. She is patient, knowledgeable, and excellent at her job, and most importantly, she takes time to answer your questions and explain any concerns she has about your teeth, so you really know what\'s going on. It inspires me to take better care of my teeth. By far, she is the best dentist I have been been to, and I highly recommend her. No more of those dime-a-dozen dentists for me!
