How Does Gum Disease Cause Tooth Loss?

Any dentist serving Columbus, Ohio will warn his patients that advanced gum disease eventually leads to tooth loss. Fortunately, good dental care can prevent gum disease entirely.

If you do not visit a dentist in the early stages of gum disease, it cannot be reversed. The initial symptoms of gum disease include tender, red gums that may bleed during or after brushing. Many also suffer from receding gums. Dentists will look for gum disease during a normal check-up, which is why scheduling regular teeth cleanings is so important. Preventative dentistry involves comprehensive cleaning of the teeth and gums. Only a dentist can completely remove plaque and tartar build-up. If bacterial plaque continues to accumulate, your gums will recede further, creating deep pockets between your teeth and gum tissue. Your teeth will eventually become loose and even fall out.

For the best in preventative dentistry, look no further than Oak Creek Dental Care of Columbus. Our dentists can help you and your family ward off gum disease and tooth decay. Check out our dental services online or call us at (614) 682-8349 to find out more.
