Richardson, TX (PRWEB) January 26, 2014
Patients suffering from gum disease symptoms can resolve to seek treatment this year and visit Dr. Kerry M. Goad. He offers his patients a thorough education so they will know the signs of periodontal disease, and provides necessary gum disease treatment to return patients to full oral health.
Gum disease is more than just a problem of dental hygiene. Many recent studies show links between good oral health and overall body health. Healthy gums and teeth can help reduce the risk of stroke, heart disease, and pancreatic cancer. The bacteria that thrive in the mouth and cause periodontal disease can travel to other parts of the body and cause other infections or contribute to increased infection in areas such as the lungs and the joints.
One study showed that keeping gums healthy with gum disease treatment might help to improve memory. Adults with gingivitis had worse results on test of memory and cognitive skills, including delayed verbal recall and decreased mathematical subtraction ability, than the group that did not have gum disease. Common gum disease symptoms that patients should seek treatment for are:
- Swollen or inflamed gums
- Pus from gums
- Gums that bleed easily
- Unusual discoloration of gums
- Persistent bad taste in mouth or bad breath
