The West Los Angeles-area oral health clinic comments on a recent article that the evidence of a strong connection between oral health and overall systemic health continues to mount.

The cardiovascular system is a very sensitive instrument and it is vulnerable to issues from throughout the body.

If left unaddressed, gum problems can lead to serious consequences, so immediate care is required,

In a January 2nd article on Science Knowledge Report, researchers from the American Heart Association outlined additional evidence linking poor dental habits to the development of cardiovascular diseases. In a study performed by the association, nearly 700 participants had their daily brushing habits cross-referenced with the rate of various cardiovascular diseases. Those who had brushed their teeth for at least two minutes twice a day were three times less likely to suffer from a cardiovascular problem, in addition to having satisfactory periodontal health. The study further linked periodontal disease, commonly known as gum disease, to heart issues of various kinds. Beverley Hills Periodontics & Dental Implant Center, commented on the article, stating that while the new information is hardly surprising, it does highlight the urgency behind the growing problem of poor oral hygiene in the United States.

Beverley Hills Periodontics & Dental Implant Center adds that periodontal disease is a common affliction, more common than most people think, and as many as half of patients suffer from moderate or severe gum disease. Luckily, periodontal disease is extremely treatable and the clinic says that it has been a leading institution in the treatment of periodontal diseases since its founding in 2007 by Dr. Peiman Soleymani. The clinic notes that early gum issues can be easy to miss as most people tend to focus more on their teeth – which are obviously more clearly visible – and they may overlook the gums beneath them. Some people may even delay treatment after experiencing such clear warning signs as bleeding gums and bad breath immediately after brushing. If left unaddressed, gum problems can lead to serious consequences, so immediate care is required, says the center.

For those fearing that they may already be suffering from a gum-related condition, Beverly Hills Periodontics & Dental Implant Center notes that it offers an array of science-backed treatment options. Depending on the severity of the individual case, less invasive periodontal disease treatment is typically taken first. Root planing and scaling, typically referred to as deep cleaning, are usually the first options explored; these are tried and true oral debriding techniques carried out at the clinic by Dr. Soleymani and his team. More advanced treatment options, including a variety of gum treatments such as bone grafting, can be used if deep cleaning by itself is not sufficient.

The clinic adds that sometimes gum problems progress to the point where one or more teeth must be extracted. While prevention is always the best route, Beverly Hills Periodontics & Dental Implant Center notes that it is a longtime provider of the very best in dental implants, the gold standard in terms of replacing lost teeth and minimizing related health problems.
