Periodontal Disease and Therapy - Dr. Michael Dagostino, D.D.S.

Periodontal Disease

This disease process has received a lot of news coverage lately because it has been associated as a factor in heart disease, high blood pressure, liver and kidney disease, and strokes. The correlation of many systemic disease processes with periodontal disease is thought to be due to the periodontal bacterias causing a plaque or hardening in the arteries or blood vessels throughout the body. These blockages cause a decrease in blood flow preventing important organs or body parts from getting sufficient oxygen or essential nutrients. This can create or worsen a disease state. Our profession had thought that there was some association of periodontal disease and other system health issues, but until recently there was no scientific basis for their beliefs. Recent university studies have proved the link and hypothesized on the reasons.

Periodontal is the #1 bacteria caused disease in the world. It is the #1 cause of tooth loss in the U.S. today. It is also highly treatable. Since I graduated from dental school 21 years ago the treatment modalities have significantly changed. Better techniques along with better medications have made periodontal surgery unnecessary in 95% of the cases I see. If you or someone you love, suspects they have periodontal disease, please call our office for an evaluation.

Sincerely,

Michael W. Dagostino, D.D.S.
