The Harmful Effects of Gum Disease and How Doctors Recreate Lost Teeth

(good things utah) June is “Oral Health Month” and despite the advice we were given growing up about brushing and flossing twice a day, almost half of adults aged 30 and over suffer a form of periodontal disease – a serious infection that damages the gums and is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults. Additionally, poor dental health can lead to a host of other health issues in the body.

More than 120 different diseases come from the mouth. However, the most common is periodontal disease. As periodontal disease progresses, the patient may begin to experience pain when chewing food with loose teeth or teeth that break and fall out. Periodontal disease can be a marker for other conditions in the body, and it can also increase the risk of heart disease by up to 25% and quadruple the risk of stroke.

Dental implants

Dental implants offer a solution that comes closest to your natural teeth. With proper care and maintenance, dental implants can last 25 years. Because the implant is placed in the bone, dental implants can help prevent bone loss and jawbone deterioration that accompanies tooth loss.

The implants also provide patients with great bite force. After the procedure, a patient can eat all the nutritious foods that keep their body healthy and eat with confidence again, without having loose teeth or food falling out of their mouth.

As a network, ClearChoice Dental Implant Centers is a national leader in dental implants and has seen and treated more cases of advanced oral disease than most other providers. Their multidisciplinary team of doctors all work together in one place, for one price, to give patients the best results. After an implant, ClearChoice teams continue to work with their patients throughout the healing process, to refine their smile and create finished teeth exactly the way they want.
