While maintaining excellent dental habits is extremely important, the health of a patient’s gums is sometimes forgotten until a problem is too large to ignore.
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (PRWEB) May 29, 2020
A May 21 article on Futurity reports on what patients can do to maintain their oral health when access to routine checkups is not available. The answer: business as usual. The article reports that following the guidelines that dentists and dental specialists have always touted regardless of the current pandemic will help to ensure oral wellbeing. Beverly Hills Periodontics & Dental Implant Center, founded by noted periodontist Dr. Peiman Soleymani, says that This is especially so now that offices are starting to reopen as new regimens are instituted for additional safety, says the center.
The periodontal center says that, when it comes to spotting or feeling tooth ailments, the initial symptoms are often quite evident: discoloration, pain or sensitivity, dark spots, or chips or breaks. A patient’s gums on the other hand may begin to swell or recede, but until the problem becomes severe, the individual may feel little to no pain or discomfort and the visible symptoms may simply go unnoticed. This means that many don’t seek treatment until the problem has already progressed, the center adds.
Beverly Hills Periodontics & Dental Implant Center says that, in times where regular checkups are harder to come by, patients sometimes must rely solely on emergency dental or periodontal disease treatment. Naturally, patients may not always be in the best position to make that judgment call, therefore erring on the side of caution is probably the best way to go when it comes to gum or tooth concerns. For example, seeing a little pinkness on a toothbrush -- often the first sign of bleeding gums -- should not be ignored. The center says that only a competent dental professional will be able to properly diagnose ailments so waiting until the problem becomes very obvious is a mistake. In other words, patients should still get in contact with their dentist or a periodontist when problems first arise.
Beverly Hills Periodontics & Dental Implant Center and Dr. Soleymani want to ensure that all their patients receive excellent care each time they visit. The center says that it is abiding by all recommendations from government and oral health organizations to ensure maximum safety for patients, dental health professionals, and the community at large.
