The Dreaded Disease
Many of us think little about proper dental hygiene which includes brushing and flossing regularly. Statistics show that 24% of the population of the United States are setting themselves up for the dreaded Periodontal Disease by not looking after their teeth, their gums, and the rest of their mouths. More staggering is the fact that 79% of all adults do not regularly floss, even though we all know the benefits of good oral hygiene with brushing and flossing.
Look out gums, here it comes, periodontal disease and all its negative effects. The impacts are staggering, and there are many professionals trying to reverse the trend, one of whom is Dr. William S. Neale of Wichita Falls, Texas. If you think you may have periodontal disease, contact Dr. Neale. He and his staff would love to help you.
The Process to Periodontal Disease
1. It begins by not following the proper oral hygiene of brushing and flossing. Did you know that plaque can harden into tartar around your teeth in just 24 hours?
2. By not brushing and flossing regularly, the tartar can build up, which is what happens to most of us.
3. The tartar increases, and bacteria builds up in your mouth causing swollen gums and sore teeth. You are now into the first stage of Gingivitis.
4. The swollen gums pull away from the teeth. Particles of food and bacteria now have an entry point and can drop deep down into the root areas of the teeth. Spirochetes bacteria results, and you are into full-blown periodontal disease.
What is Periodontal Disease?
Periodontal disease is caused by the growth of Spirochetes bacteria in the deep recesses of your gums. If not treated effectively by a Periodontist, your gums will rot, your teeth may fall out, and you are on the path to some pretty serious medical conditions, all because you did not brush and floss properly.
It is not a pretty picture. Neither are the results of what Spirochetes bacteria and periodontal disease can do to your mouth and the rest of your body.
What are The Causal Effects?
Spirochetes and periodontal disease can have a huge impact on a person’s quality of life. Not only can your gums rot and your teeth fall out, causing significant disfigurement, but there will be increased infection throughout your total body. This can cause a much higher prospect for a disease like heart failure, diabetes, arthritis, painful joints, and extremely low energy as the infections attack your immune system.
It is not good. Do you want to cut years off your life? Then be part of the 79% who do not brush and floss regularly and are prime candidates for periodontal disease.
How to Prevent Periodontal Disease
It is simple to prevent periodontal disease. All that is required is for the 79% of the population who do not brush and floss regularly to begin to do just that. The question is, how do we get that to occur?

Periodontal disease is easily preventable with just a few minutes spent each day brushing and flossing. Easy to suggest, but 79% of the population does not follow that simple solution. They are ripe for contracting periodontal disease which can hugely impact your quality of life, possibly causing heart problems, diabetes, arthritis, and other serious problems.
