What are the side effects of gum disease in Las Vegas?Posted By Dr. Christopher Lim
Dr. Christopher Lim of Hillside Dental educates his patients on the side effects of gum disease. Gum disease can cause a variety of issues. This may include bleeding, swollen gums, disintegration of bone, loss of tissue, and loosening of teeth. It also causes the development of infection from bacteria that can carry through the rest of the body and result in an increased risk for a number of issues such as strokes, heart disease, and even diabetes. This is called the “oral systemic connection” and needs to be made known to patients as a potential health problem.
Patients may notice that they are experiencing the beginning stages of gum disease due to swelling, redness, and bleeding of the gums when they brush and floss. This is an indication of an issue that needs to be addressed as soon as possible. Dr. Christopher Lim and the team at Las Vegas’s Hillside Dental can educate patients on what to look for. Patients who maintain their dental health will be able to catch the signs of gum disease early enough for conservative treatment.
Dr. Christopher Lim and his team welcome patients to Hillside Dental, proper oral health care habits are at the core of good dental health and should not be overlooked.
