Eau Claire, WI (PRWEB) February 21, 2017
Dr. Bruce Trimble, a dentist who treats gum disease in Eau Claire, WI and Menomonie, WI, is supporting Gum Disease Awareness Month by raising awareness about the serious health risks associated with this common condition. Besides harming tooth and bone health, gum disease has been tied to many severe systemic illnesses. Given these risks, Dr. Trimble is now welcoming new patients to visit his practice, Trimble Dental Excellence, for complimentary gum disease consultations.
Gum disease is common in the U.S.; data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that nearly half of adults over age 30 suffer from it. In addition, over 70 percent of adults over age 65 live with gum disease. Research shows that these individuals are at higher risk for many illnesses, including stroke, diabetes, pancreatic cancer and heart disease. Gum disease also can cause local complications, such as tooth mobility, changes in jaw bone density and tooth loss. Given these complications, it is critical for victims of gum disease to see a dentist as soon as possible.
Many adults may not realize they need treatment for gum disease because the symptoms can be subtle. Dr. Trimble warns patients to pay attention to changes in gum health, including swelling, bleeding, pain, recession and increases in pocket size. Shifts in the positioning of the teeth can be signs of gum disease, as can persistent bad breath. People who notice any of these symptoms of gum disease should protect their oral and general health by seeing a dentist for further evaluation.
Dr. Trimble offers patients numerous tailored treatments to address gum disease. These include scaling and root planing, which removes bacteria from below the gumline; osseous surgery to smooth out the gum pockets and roots of the teeth; and periodontal maintenance, which keeps the teeth and gums free of infection.
