Maintain your oral health and keep your whole body well. Periodontal medicine treats inflammation and disease in the teeth and mouth to avoid it spreading to other areas of the body and causing greater harm.
Periodontal Medicine is the field of dentistry that focuses on the wealth of new data establishing a strong relationship between periodontal (gum) disease and systemic (entire body system) health. Some of these diseases include cardiovascular and pulmonary disease, strokes, arthritis, diabetes, adverse pregnancy outcomes (including low birth weight and premature birth) respiratory infection and some cancers.
Periodontal Disease is the most common diseases affecting mankind, responsible for the majority of teeth lost in the adult population across the globe.
The microbial (bacterial) causes of periodontal disease, the mechanisms through which periodontal tissues (gum and jaw bone) are destroyed, and the impact of this disease on the rest of the body have been the subject of intense study. The resulting information has led to a new way of thinking about the importance of the mouth in overall health.
It is now understood that a strong relationship exists between oral diseases and other diseases in the human body. An enormous amount of evidence is emerging in the medical, dental and scientific literature (research publications) describing the relationship between periodontal disease and systemic (overall body) diseases.
