Tooth Loss: Periodontal Gum Disease

Share Article

TM Prosthodontics, a Miami dental office, announces new treatment for an old problem: periodontal disease, which causes tooth loss.


As humans grow older, all sorts of things may work together to cause health problems - from heart disease, kidney problems, liver issues, digestive difficulty, and joint pain, to osteoporosis. Yet with all of these, there’s a common factor. Damage to organs can heal. Even damage to bones heals over time. One thing that can’t be replaced by the body is teeth. In fact, adults over age 35 tend to lose more teeth to gum disease than to cavities.

Gum disease and tooth decay are caused by plaque. Yet plaque by itself is not harmful; it is the tartar, or calculus, that the plaque hardens into. Tartar and plaque breed bacteria and toxins that cause and accelerate gum and tooth structure diseases, like periodontal disease. This disease happens when gums, inflamed by gingivitis or toxic irritation, recede from the tooth and bone structures around them. The bone and harder tissues, now exposed to bacteria themselves, then begin to decay, causing the teeth they support to eventually fall out.

TM Prosthodontics, a dentist in Miami, announced today that they now offer a new, improved treatment for diseases like Periodontal disease. While the best treatment is preventative, TM Prosthodontics also performs surgery for patients who might be experiencing an advanced stage of the disease. There are several dentists and surgeons in Miami that provide this service, but TM Prosthodontics is widely regarded as one of the best and most affordable.

Frequent and effective tooth brushing and flossing are the best ways to counter periodontal disease. By keeping up with dental maintenance like this, you keep plaque and tartar from forming and kill bacteria that can cause the gums to recede.

TM Prosthodontics' Dr. Tal Morr completely examines patients’ dental records and current status to make sure that periodontal disease has not occurred, and if it has, to recommend treatment and prevention of future disease.

TM Prosthodontics offers a variety of dental work, from teeth veneers to inlays & onlays, teeth bonding, dental bridges, crowns, full mouth dental implants, dentures, bleaching, and more. TM is also a dental surgery center, and as such can perform procedures from alloderm grafting to full mouth reconstruction. This can be useful for damaged jawbones or other structural (periodontal) damage.
If tooth loss has occurred, there are affordable artificial tooth options available. Call TM Prosthodontics to see whether dental implants in Miami might be a possibility.

TM Prosthodontics is available by appointment between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. from Monday to Thursday.
