When typing “teeth” into the Google search, the fourth suggestion is “teeth falling out dream.” Now if you have ever experienced this, you know it is one of the most terrifying dreams and one way to prevent this is regular visits to Dr. Maryam Brazdo. They are here to help you avoid gum disease, which is what can cause your teeth to fall out.
Besides visiting Artistic Touch Dentistry on a regular basis, what else can you do? Of course, brushing your teeth and flossing regularly is always a good start. However, there are certain factors that can affect the health of your gums such as smoking, stress, poor nutrition, and clenching or grinding your teeth. So if possible, try and reverse those bad habits so you don’t develop periodontal disease.
One symptom of gum disease is gums that are irritated, red, swell, and bleed easily. The bacteria that is found in plaque produces toxins that cause this irritation. If this goes for too long, the gums separate from the teeth, causing spaces to form. As periodontal diseases progress, the supporting gum tissue and bone that holds teeth in place deteriorate. If left untreated, this leads to tooth loss.
Although periodontal disease is not always prevented, once the disease starts you should certainly see one of our dentists to prevent its progress. Call 321.724.1400 or stop by our office to see how you can prevent periodontal diseases.
