Gum disease ‘could result in emergency dentistry, not Christmas kisses’

Thu

Failing to look after gums could lead to emergency dentistry.People hoping to get a festive kiss under the mistletoe need to make sure they look after their gums, or they may just be in line for emergency dentistry.

This is the advice of oral health products manufacturer Eludril and Elgydium, which told Dentistry.co.uk that a quick swish of mouthwash is not enough to prevent bad breath, as it may be down to gum disease.

"This can be remedied by brushing your teeth after every meal to remove food particles from your mouth. You should also floss once a day and brush your tongue," the company said.

Early gum disease, the symptoms of which include bleeding gums, can be treated easily, but advanced cases may require emergency dentistry.

Regular check-ups could help patients to spot gum disease.

In October 2010, Dr Bianca Flora, an oral health specialist in the US, told the CT Post that a soft brush or an electric model may help in the fight against gum disease.

Emergency dentistry ‘could highlight risk of diabetes’

Gum disease sufferers should not avoid emergency dentistry, as they may have diabetes.  People who fear they have gum disease should not put off having emergency dentistry, as it could provide a vital check for diabetes.

This is according to Scott Navarro, a dental director in New Jersey, who told NJ Today that oral healthcare practitioners could provide an early warning that allows potential diabetics to be on the alert and to get treatment if they need it.

"We've known for a long time that people with diabetes are more susceptible to gum disease," he commented.

"It is emerging that periodontal (gum) disease is associated with increased risk for diabetes complications."

According to Diabetes UK, there are 2.8 million people with the condition in Britain, as well as another 500,000 who have it but do not realise.

Last month, Dr Bianca Flora, an oral health specialist in the US, told the CT Post that patients could avoid gum disease and having to have their teeth pulled out via emergency dentistry by getting regular check-ups and appointments with a hygienist.

Regular check-ups ‘will prevent serious gum disease and emergency dentistry’

Taking care of your gums as well as your teeth could prevent emergency dentistry.Patients could avoid gum disease and having to have their teeth pulled out via emergency dentistry by getting regular check-ups and appointments with a hygienist.

Dr Bianca Flora, an oral health specialist in the US, told the CT Post that gingivitis and periodontitis can be caught and treated quickly, but only if dentists see it in time.

If not, it may result in the patient losing their teeth or having to have extensive cosmetic dentistry treatment.

She explained that people can also prevent gum problems by brushing thoroughly but not too vigorously using a soft brush, something which owning an electric toothbrush may be able to help with.

Earlier this month, US Insurance Online reported that the American Dental Hygienists’ Association had recommended regular oral health examinations for preventing conditions such as diabetes, osteoporosis and eating disorders.

This is because bacteria can get into the bloodstream if it s not removed from between the teeth.
