Periodontal (Gum) Treatment
In the past 10 years, medical doctors have become very aware of how oral infections can severely compromise a patient’s total physical health. Examples include proven links between dental infections and cardiac problems. Also, patients with unstable diabetes will have difficulty in improving medical problems in the presence of chronic adult gum disease.
A plethora of oral bacteria, fungi and viruses inhabit the mouth in a balanced relationship with us. But once these micro-organisms infect the teeth or jaw, this can lead to chronic low grade infection affecting the lympathetic (immune) system, kidneys, liver or other organs.
At Happy Teeth®, we take oral infections and dental allergies seriously because we care about your total health. You will receive a thorough examination of your mouth and, when necessary, will be referred to specialists for further testing. No infection or dental allergy is ever “minor” when it comes to your health!
