Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) January 21, 2014
For people who have committed to improving their oral health this year, Dr. Andrew Satlin now provides a range of treatments for gum disease, including laser gum surgery, gingivectomy, and scaling and root planing. People who notice symptoms of periodontal disease such as tender, inflamed, or bleeding gums can protect their oral and overall health by visiting Dr. Satlin for treatment. Research has suggested that periodontal disease increases the risk of various health conditions, including heart disease and certain cancers, which is why health-conscious people can benefit from paying close attention to gum disease symptoms.
Periodontal disease can have serious effects on both oral health and general health. Gum disease can cause damage to gums, teeth, and the bone that supports the teeth. In addition to these local effects, gum disease can have numerous long-term consequences. Past research has shown that people with periodontal disease have a greater risk of developing chronic conditions like heart disease and stroke, and in the last decade, studies have suggested that gum disease victims are also at a heightened risk for pancreatic cancer. Gum disease may also have an adverse affect on diabetes, which is a condition that makes people more likely to contract gum disease in the first place.
Considering all of the known and potential risks that have been linked to periodontal disease, it only makes sense for people concerned with their health to pay attention to gum disease symptoms and seek early treatment with Dr. Satlin. Common symptoms that patients can watch for include sensitivity, loosening of teeth, and swollen, receding, or bleeding gums. By taking these symptoms seriously and visiting Dr. Satlin promptly, victims of gum disease may be able to avoid many of the associated health complications.
