Myths about Periodontal Treatments

Myths about Periodontal TreatmentsBetween half and three-quarters of all Americans suffer from periodontal disease ranging from mild gingivitis to advanced periodontitis, according to the American Academy of Periodontology. Only a small fraction of these patients seek treatment for the condition, which is highly treatable in its earliest stages. Our Beverly Hills dentist encourages our patients to learn more about the condition and separate fact from myth.

•    Myth: Bleeding gums are normal.
Fact: Bleeding gums that are red and swollen are one of the earliest signs of gum disease. Bleeding while brushing, flossing or eating indicates a dental checkup is in order. If gum disease is treated at this early stage, it can be reversed. If it is left to continue, you may be at risk for losing teeth, losing bone density and suffering more extensive consequences, including an increased risk of heart disease and diabetes.

•    Myth: Flossing daily is not necessary.
Fact: Keeping your teeth clean by brushing after meals and flossing daily is the primary way to prevent gum disease. Unfortunately, just over 10 percent of Americans make flossing a daily habit, which means that more than 85 percent may be at risk. Use waxed floss, floss picks or other tools to make this job easier.

•    Myth: Periodontists are intimidating.
Fact: A periodontist is an expert in gum health. He or she has received at least three years of highly specialized training after dental school in order to prevent, diagnose and treat gum disorders. They have access to some of the most technologically advanced treatments and procedures to help restore gum health.

•    Myth: Gum disease is caused by poor dental hygiene.
Fact: Poor dental hygiene plays a major role in the development of gum disease, but other factors can also contribute to your risk. Smoking, stress, genetics and a poor diet can increase your risk. Our Beverly Hills periodontal treatments specialist can help you learn more about your risk factors. Schedule your consultation today.
