Patients with gum disease in Rock Hill, SC, can now receive treatment from Drs. Jennifer Houck, Lauren Smith, and Heather Johnson with India Hook Dental Care, without a referral. Over 64 million Americans have mild to severe gum disease. Drs. Houck, Smith, and Johnson understand that in order to prevent further health issues, patients must seek a dentist for experienced periodontal treatment. As a result, they have been trained in the latest gum disease therapy and periodontal techniques to ensure lasting and effective treatment.
Although gum disease is a widespread issue, many patients may be unaware that they have a problem and therefore do not seek the help of a dentist when symptoms first appear. Some of the most common symptoms of gum disease include:
- Persistent bad breath
- Puffy, red, and swollen gums
- Bleeding gums
- Gum recession
- Loose teeth
When patients fail to receive treatment, they put both their oral and overall health at risk. When left untreated, gum disease can progress to periodontal disease, which can cause a breakdown in the supporting structures of the teeth and result in loose or lost teeth. However, the condition can also become a systemic issue throughout the body, with bacteria traveling through various organs and causing inflammation and other serious conditions. Pregnant woman are at a higher risk of premature deliveries and low birth weight babies if they have periodontal disease. Untreated gum disease has also been associated with stroke, heart disease, diabetes, and cancer.
Since the conditions associated with untreated gum disease are so serious, it is vital that patients with gum disease in Rock Hill, SC, receive care from a highly skilled and experienced dentist. That is why India Hook Dental Care offers regular periodontal maintenance care and scaling and root planing, in addition to gentle laser gum disease therapy.
