Just as important as your teeth for your oral health, your gums play an important role in supporting your teeth and need to be kept healthy. When they become inflamed from gum disease, you face very real, very serious consequences, including potential tooth loss and permanent damage to your bone and tissue, if you don’t address gum disease early on. That’s why your dental checkup and cleaning appointment with us is so important! But what can be done if you already have this chronic inflammatory condition? Our Rejuvadent Stem Cell Therapy provides a unique solution for this common disease.
Although swelling and redness in the gums may simply seem like a harmless symptom, gum inflammation can easily lead to inflammation elsewhere in the body. The bacteria causing gum disease can enter the blood stream inside the mouth and spread to other places, including important blood vessels, arteries, and the brain. As a result, research has found links between gum disease and heart disease and Alzheimer’s, just to name a couple. Addressing the inflammation in your mouth could benefit your long-term overall health.
When you have periodontal disease, your body sends signals to send additional blood cells to the area. However, this inflammation does not help to improve matters. In fact, oral infections differ from some other conditions in that they only get worse with time. Embryonic stem cells still have the ability to become any of the following cells: neurons, cartilage, fat, blood, bone, and muscle. As such, they seek out the harmful bacteria that cause inflammation and reduce the inflammation you experience through stimulating your own cells to fight the infection, which leads to better oral health and overall well-being.
If your gums are inflamed or if you think you have gum disease, don’t hesitate to give our Frisco office a call for an appointment. Ask us about this revolutionary treatment that can get you the help you need to overcome inflammation and restore your mouth’s well-being!
