Periodontal Therapy in Canton, MI
Gum Disease Treatment
Do you struggle with periodontal disease, also known as gum disease? As an American adult, the odds are against you. According to research by the CDC, half of Americans over 30 have an advanced form of it, meaning there are millions struggling with their oral health on a daily basis.
It’s because gum disease is such a real struggle that Dr. Shoukfeh offers periodontal therapy. With this essential service, we can help patients who struggle with gum disease regain their health and manage their symptoms.
The symptoms of gum disease include:
- Swollen gums
- Gums that bleed while brushing
- Frequent bad breath
- Loose teeth
- Receding gum line
If your condition becomes advanced enough, you may even lose one or more teeth. In fact, gum disease is the number one cause of tooth loss in adults.
Gum Disease & Your Overall Health
While gum disease mainly affects your oral health, it can also have an impact on your overall health. Studies have linked this common problem with heart disease, stroke, Alzheimer’s, diabetes, and pre-term delivery in pregnant women.
At Canton Family Smile, we bring a special concern for total health and wellbeing to the treatment of gum disease. During a consultation, we’ll assess your needs and design your treatment accordingly. If you have questions about any of the suggestions we make, we’d be happy to answer them.
