We have schedules for our car maintenance, our regular doctor’s appointments, meetings, and a whole host of events. Unfortunately, most of us don’t have a regular schedule for our dental maintenance. If we all did, then about 50% of the population in the United States would not be suffering from periodontal disease. Periodontal disease is just one of the dangerous conditions that can overtake our mouths and our bodies if we don’t commit to regular dental maintenance.
It is Just Not Teeth Cleaning
“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure,” is saying most of us have thought before, if not used as an analogy. Unfortunately, most of us do not adhere to those words. Going to the dentist is not just about getting your teeth cleaned, it’s about a dental maintenance checkup.
When you take your car to the garage for an oil change, you typically get a report of fluid level and part checked. From the water to the tires, the mechanic gives you a report outlining the condition of various components of your car. Going to the dentist may be for a cleaning, but the dentist will check you gums, your teeth, and other parts of your mouth. If you go to a periodontal dental specialist, such as Dr. William S. Neale of Wichita Falls, Texas, you will also get checked for periodontal disease.
What About Periodontal Disease?
Periodontal disease is a progressive infection deep down in the gums caused by the toxins and contaminants from tartar that can build up in your mouth. Tartar is plaque that hardens. This chemical reaction can occur very quickly.
Periodontal disease produces Spirochetes bacterium that eventually makes its way to other parts of the body through the bloodstream. Depositing in the arteries, it can be a causal factor in heart disease and diabetes. It can also create chronic joint swelling, pain, and arthritis. Periodontal disease is a nasty disease. Once established in the deep recesses of the gums, it can cause degeneration of the jawbone, receding gums, and eventual loss of teeth.
All this and more is because people do not heed their own advice, “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.”
