Gum Disease Care
When we find unhealthy areas, we will educate you about options to get things back to optimum health levels. We have leading-edge technology in our hygiene department, just as we do in all other areas of our practice.How do you know if your gums are unhealthy? A simple test is to vigorously floss between all of you teeth. Is there any blood on the floss? If so, you have (at least) gingivitis and maybe more progressive gum disease. Healthy gums do not bleed when you brush or floss. If your teeth and gums bleed when you brush and floss, you are at risk for serious illness. Blairsville Dentistry can help you reverse your risk and get your mouth healthy.
The presence of these bacteria cause your body to launch an inflammatory response, targeted at the infection in your gums. The effects of this inflammatory response, however, are widespread throughout your body. Scientific research shows that this inflammation is what is so harmful to your whole system, and puts you at risk for serious illness. With regular periodontal therapy at Blairsville Dentistry we help destroy the bacteria causing the inflammatory response, which promotes a healing environment so the body is allowed to heal itself.
