If you have been told you have periodontal (gum) disease, you’re not alone. Many adults in the Canada currently have some form of the disease. The main cause of periodontal disease is plaque, but other factors affect the health of your gums and include age, smoking/tobacco use, genetics, stress, medications, poor nutrition and more.
Periodontal diseases range from simple gum inflammation to serious disease that results in major damage to the soft tissue and bone that support the teeth. Whether your gum disease is stopped, slowed, or gets worse depends a great deal on how well you care for your teeth and gums every day, from this point forward.
When gingivitis is not treated, it can advance to periodontitis, which means there is inflammation around the tooth. In periodontitis, gums pull away from the teeth and form spaces, called pockets, that become infected. The body’s immune system fights the bacteria as the plaque spreads and grows below the gum line. Bacterial toxins and the body’s natural response to infection start to break down the bone and connective tissue that hold teeth in place. If not treated, the bones, gums, and tissue that support the teeth are destroyed and the teeth may eventually have to be removed.
Porcelain Veneers and Ceramic Crowns
What Are Dental Veneers?
Teeth veneers are one of the most popular and beautiful ways to improve your smile.
They create an entirely new “face” for your teeth while also strengthening them. The effect of a well-done veneer is subtle, yet immediate: People who’ve known you for years will stare at you and ask, “What’s different about you? You look fantastic!” Whether you want to tell them the secret is up to you. You have choices with your dental veneers.
Our dentists, Dr. Jesse Panesar and Dr. Sunny Panesar, and their team at Tsawwassen Family Dentistry will work with you to help determine which type is best for you.
