Dental Hygiene In St. Albert
The link between oral health and the health of the body is well-known within the healthcare community. Periodontal disease or gum disease is among the most common human diseases. This “silent” disease, often does not present any symptoms until you have reached an advanced stage. It is crucial that you pay attention to the warning signs, these include:
- Red, swollen, tender gums
- Pain in your mouth
- Mouth sores
- Persistent bad breath or a bad taste in your mouth
- Gums that pull away (recede) from your teeth
- Loose or separating teeth
- Pus between your gums and teeth
- A change in your bite
Bacteria is the cause of gum disease. When bacteria are left untreated, they can travel through your bloodstream and increase your risk of stroke, heart disease, respiratory diseases, and pregnancy complications.
