Bergen County residents have found comfort in their local Dentist to help them with Gum Disease
Periodontal disease is an infection of the tissues that support your teeth. Periodontal diseases attack just below the gum; this causes the supporting tissues to break down. As the tissues are damaged it creates a deeper pocket around the tooth. Once someone has periodontal disease itís not reversible, but can be controlled with proper maintenance. This is why itís so important to focus on healthy dental habits; itís much easier to prevent gum disease than to live with it. Dr. Sherzoy strongly believes that being treated at once for bleeding gum disease is a smart way to prevent an unhealthy smile.
People may not think that Periodontal Gum Disease is fatal but indeed it is. It causes heart attacks, strokes and birth defects. The American Academy of Periodontology, explains several theories that link periodontal disease and heart disease. One theory is that oral bacteria can affect the heart when it enters the blood stream, attaching to fatty plaques in the coronary arteries (heart blood vessels) and contributing to clot formation. Blood clots can get in the way of normal blood flow, restricting the amount of nutrients and oxygen required for the heart to function properly. This may lead to heart attacks and strokes. There is now new evidence that besides smoking, alcohol use and drug use during pregnancy can cause low birth weight, also periodontal disease is becoming a new risk factor. More research is needed to confirm how periodontal disease may affect pregnancy outcomes, but it appears periodontal disease increases levels of biological fluid that induces labor.
Dr. Sherzoy agrees, ďAs gum disease progresses, your gums, begin to pull away from your teeth creating pockets caused by the plaque and tartar. Bacteria grow in these pockets, preventing your gums from healing, and making the problem worst. There is no way for you to clean these pockets in your gums at home. However, at Bogota Dental we can safely remove the bacteria and allow your gums to heal again. If left untreated, gum disease will begin destroying tissue and even your jawbone.Ē
