Keeping your smile in its best condition can help you live longer! Strong connections have been made between oral health and total body health, known as the oral systemic connection. At Crisafulli Dental, we offer Bothell periodontal treatment to stop gum disease before it has a chance to permanently damage your gums, teeth, bone structure, and overall health.
Periodontal Disease is Serious Business!
It has been estimated more than 75% of American adults have some form of gum disease. In its more aggressive stages, gum disease turns into a more severe condition called periodontitis. Gum disease and periodontitis have been shown to cause the following health conditions:
- Coronary artery disease
- Respiratory problems
- Diabetic complications
- Low birth weight babies
- Deterioration of the jaw bone
- Tooth loss
If we discover signs of periodontitis our in-house periodontist, Dr. Holler, will discuss your treatment options and set up a recall program aimed to control your condition.
If you suspect you may have gum disease, it’s imperative you seek treatment as soon as possible! Contact Crisafulli Dental to schedule an evaluation with our Bothell area periodontal professional.
