Sherman Oaks, CA (PRWEB) February 09, 2015
Sherman Oaks periodontist, dental implant specialist, Dr. Delaram Hanookai, is now offering complimentary consultations. Periodontal disease occurs more frequently as people get older, but this common dental health problem can have serious effects on the rest of the body. A recent study, which was published in the “Journal of Dental Research,” found that chronic periodontal disease may be a death risk factor and can play a role in determining the prognosis after a heart attack. Previous studies have linked periodontal disease with diabetes and cardiovascular disease, and another study has found a correlation between the risk of cardiovascular disease and poor dental hygiene.
A complimentary consultation allows patients to gain more insight into their dental health and become more familiar with Dr. Hanookai’s office. Many people have early stage periodontal disease, or gingivitis, but the symptoms can be easily missed. Common symptoms of early stage gum disease include:
- Gums that bleed easily
- A red, swollen, or shiny appearance
- Gums that seem to pull back from teeth or a receding gum line
- Chronic bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth
- Teeth that seem to be loose or shifting or a bite that no longer feels comfortable
Many treatments are available to control periodontal disease and restore gum health, including scaling and root planing, laser treatments, crown lengthening, gum grafts, regenerative procedures, sinus augmentation, socket preservation, and dental implants. Sherman Oaks periodontist, Dr. Hanookai, also offers cosmetic treatments, including gummy smile treatment, gum grafting, laser gum treatment and cosmetic gum bleaching.
