The Mouth is the Window to the Health of the Body

It reveals whether or not you are eating foods that are best for you; if you are drinking enough water or if you may be at risk for disease.

The mouth is filled with many bacteria. Some of these bacteria are linked to tooth decay and periodontal (gum) disease. Periodontal disease and ongoing inflammation from periodontitis may be connected with diabetes and stroke just to name a few. 

People with diabetes are more likely to develop periodontal disease and have more severe periodontitis than non diabetics.

Pocket Depth Measurement

A member of your dental team can determine if you have periodontal disease by performing a quick and relatively painless procedure using an instrument called a probe to measure the size and depth of the pockets in the gums.

 

Pockets that are four or more millimeters in depth may be an indication of infection or disease. 

X-Rays: Determining Bone Loss

Periodontal disease is a silent persistent bacterial infection involving the gums and the bone that support your teeth.

 

Once this support is damaged you will begin to lose bone. The amount of bone loss can be seen in x-rays.
