Gum Disease Is Toxic, But Not Just For Your Smile! [BLOG]

Beautiful Lady with Healthy Teeth and Gums | Gum Disease Treatment in Friendly Smiles Center in Mount Laurel, NJ - Dr. Robert Chase

A clean, healthy mouth is far more kissable than an unhealthy mouth being destroyed by gum disease infection.

Not just that, but knowing your teeth and gums look bad is going to wreck your confidence, and insecurity is an unattractive quality in a date.

The point is that gum disease is toxic to your oral and overall health, but that’s not all it can destroy. You need a healthy mouth and a nice smile if you want to feel confident enough to relax and be yourself, especially if you’re looking to maintain a close, deep connection with your special someone.

If Valentine’s Day was spoiled because of your unhealthy teeth and gums, then let’s help you turn that around with gum disease treatment at Friendly Smiles Center in Mount Laurel, NJ so that your next romantic evening out is more enjoyable!

To Stop Gum Disease, You Have To Spot It!

Because it doesn’t generate noticeable symptoms to the untrained eye in the early stages, you may not think much about gum disease. After all, if everything in your mouth looks okay, then it probably is okay, right?

But unfortunately, periodontal infection is pretty sneaky, which is why it’s often considered a silent killer. It can be stopped, and if caught early enough, even reversed.

The catch is that in order to stop it, you have to spot it!

Here are some symptoms to be aware of:

  • A change in your bite alignment
  • Darkening or reddening of the gums
  • Bloody, tender, or swollen gums
  • Pain or difficulty when chewing
  • Increased tooth sensitivity
  • Teeth that look longer than they used to
  • Loose or missing teeth

While these symptoms are all unpleasant in their own way, another problem caused by gum disease can have a direct impact on your romantic life, other than making your smile unattractive and unhealthy.

Bad breath!

You’re not very kissable when you have persistent bad breath from an oral infection that won’t be helped by mouthwash or breath mints. And that’s not the most romantic dental problem you’d want to have on date night, now is it?

With scaling at root planing, Dr. Chase can get deep under your gumline to remove infection and then smooth over your tooth roots that have been damaged so that harmful bacteria won’t be able to collect in those areas as easily moving forward.

We’ll probably need to see you more frequently for these deep cleanings just until your gum disease is back under control and your smile is safe and healthy again, and your breath is fresher!

Save What Matters!

Staying healthy so you can enjoy as much time with those you love as possible is something we all want, and we can do our part to help you with gum disease treatment in Mount Laurel.

With an extra bit of diligence, you’ll be back on the road to better oral and overall health so you can save everything else that matters to you the most!
