Clarks Summit Gum Disease and Gingivitis Treatment

Gum disease and gingivitis are among the most prevalent of dental problems. It begins with bad breath and can lead to tooth loss and other more serious health problems. Periodontist Dr. Joseph Kelly, Jr can help you keep periodontal disease at bay, or better yet, avoided altogether.

There are two types of gum disease. The first, which is reversible, is common gingivitis. With gingivitis, the gums are inflamed but a rigorous program of brushing, flossing and regular dental care can often cure the problem. However, left untreated, gingivitis can lead to the more serious problem of periodontitis. Studies have found that infected gum tissues can lead to heart problems and other serious health conditions.

Good Dental Health Can Help Prevent Stroke and Heart Attack

Sure, not getting regular checkups may make you less kissable, but did you know that studies have linked heart attacks and strokes to gum disease associated with poor oral hygiene? A trip to Kelly Dental Care every six months could reduce your risk of serious health problems.

Don’t wait any longer to schedule a checkup with Dr. Joseph Kelly. Call our office today at (855) 695-7452.

Adults Get More Cavities Than Kids

Modern dentistry, with the help of sealants, fluoride, and preventive care, has dramatically reduced tooth decay in children. However, there’s been an increase in decay in seniors. Some medicines dry out the mouth, for example, reducing salvia. Saliva is vital in fighting tooth decay because it helps neutralize acids, has a disinfectant quality, washes away bacteria, and helps prevent food from sticking to your teeth.

If you have questions about senior dental care, please call Kelly Dental Care today at (855) 695-7452.

Bad Breath Can Be a Sign of Dental Problems

While bad breath might be a symptom of some other disorder, it most likely stems from dental decay and periodontitis. It's more than just socially awkward - it's a serious threat to your oral health. Periodontitis is a disease affecting gums and bone that support the teeth, and it is caused by inadequate brushing and flossing.

If you’re worried about bad breath, call us today at (855) 695-7452 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Kelly. If he finds gum disease and/or dental decay, it can be treated readily. There's no need to live with bad breath, and no reason to neglect your dental health.
