Consequences of gum disease on your overall health

The Oral-Systemic Health Connection

Your mouth is the gateway to the rest of your body. When you have gum disease, seeing a periodontist can help to prevent oral biofilm from spreading through your bloodstream into areas like your heart, brain, and blood vessels. The more aggressive your periodontal infection is, the more challenging it can be to combat common health problems. When gum disease and medical conditions coincide, your immune system becomes strained and is unable to effectively manage all of the situations at one time.

Consequently, treating periodontal disease can have a positive impact on your overall level of wellness. It’s difficult to control underlying medical conditions with an active oral infection. Our Cary, NC periodontist can assist you in breaking the cycle and improving your health. As a result, your immune system can work more efficiently to combat other health concerns in a more effective manner!

Eliminating Bad Bacteria Without Damaging Tissues

Thanks to state-of-the-art LANAP® laser gum disease treatment, our periodontist can remove bacteria and diseased gum tissues without damaging healthy ones. With LANAP, our gum disease patients see faster recovery times without having to necessarily undergo more invasive surgeries. The process allows gum tissues to reattach to the roots by eliminating diseased areas. As such, your body can heal more quickly.
