Periodontal disease is an extremely serious condition of the gums that requires general dentistry in order to restore health to the mouth. River Peak Dental offers advanced periodontal therapy right here in Ridgway, Colorado. Your gums perform a major role in the mouth by helping to hold the teeth in place and protecting the roots and inner structures of the teeth. Healthy gums are light pink and firm, and they do their job well. However, infected gums pose a huge threat to the integrity of your teeth and the health of your entire body.
The earliest form of periodontal disease starts as gingivitis. Gingivitis is a bacterial infection that affects the edges of the gums where they meet the teeth. When this infection moves deeper into the gums it has developed into a serious infection that will require periodontal therapy to eradicate the infection and restore health to the gums.
Periodontal disease is extremely dangerous to your entire health. Because the gums are living tissues, they can easily pass an infection through the blood stream. Periodontal disease has been proven to have direct links to heart disease, liver failure, diabetes, and miscarriage. If you have any signs of swollen, infected, or bleeding gums it is imperative that you contact River Peak Dental for an immediate appointment. We offer successful periodontal therapy to restore your health.
