Gum Disease with Implants is Still Possible

Posted on 1/10/2017 by Fady Ebid
A dental implant inside of a patients jaw.If you lost some, or all, of your teeth, and had them replaced with dental implants, don't think that your days of worrying about gum disease are behind you.

It can still destroy your mouth and cause you to have major health issues.

Just because the gum disease cannot harm the false tooth directly, doesn't mean that it cannot do other things to your mouth, and to your body as a whole.

The Dangers of Gum Disease Still Exist with Dental Implants

Many people mistakenly think that gum disease is an actual disease of the tooth that simply affects the gums. However, it is the other way around. The gums become inflamed, and that is what affects the tooth's health and integrity.

When you have dental implants, those gums can still become inflamed and can struggle to remain healthy. It can affect how healthy your jawbone is that is holding the posts for your implants, and if that begins to deteriorate, it can make your implant fall out.

Also, when you are battling gum disease, it can affect your body's overall health. You can be more tired, fight off less ailments that you come in contact with, and be more likely to be overweight. Gum disease doesn't only affect your gums, and it can do a lot of harm when left untreated.

If you want help seeing if you have gum disease, go in and see your dentist. If you know you have it, then make sure you follow the gum disease treatment that your doctor gave you.

Follow each step of the treatment plan to the letter so that you can get a healthy mouth and keep it that way. The last thing you want is to go through the trouble of getting implants, only to lose them to improper oral care after the fact.

Please contact our office if you have any questions about gum disease.
