Your Benefits With Oral HygieneClean teeth
PeriodontitisPeriodontitis is a disease of the gums apparatus, which is mainly caused by certain bacteria. So-called "gum pockets" (gap between tooth and gum) arise and through the associated bone recession teeth become loose and finally get lost.
Most periodontal disease is caused by plaque. But there are also other factors that can cause periodontitis. The severity of the disease is determined by factors including the number and the depth of the gum pockets.
As treatment thorough cleanings are performed, thereby reducing the bacterial load in the first place. If required further treatments may be necessary. As common chronic disease of adulthood periodontitis plays a significant role in human aging.
Oral Health and Anti AgingIn the area of human aging process, nowadays people speak of "inflammaging", therefore aging is caused by chronic inflammatory processes at a low level. This causes a permanent activated immune system in aging people combined with decreased ability to neutralize or eliminate the inflammation causative irritants. Chronic overeating (obesity) acts as a constant inflammatory process. The sum of these chronic changes cause an accelerated inflammaging (aging) with a reduced health and life expectancy and an increased risk of chronic diseases (for example, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease and atherosclerosis). The early treatment of periodontitis is therefore also a factor for reducing the general aging process.*
