Many hormonal imbalances can be seen within your mouth. For example, during pregnancy many people have red, irritated gum tissue that can possibly bleed. These patients may otherwise have perfectly normal gum tissue, but because of their current hormonal state their gum tissues are reacting differently. Dr. Wade and Dr. Moody see many conditions that mimic this response and are directly related to hormone imbalances. The goal in these situations is to minimize your oral inflammation through a customized professional hygiene therapy treatment plan. By keeping your oral cavity inflammation in an optimal state, your oral inflammation will not adversely affect your systemic inflammatory disease.
