Prevent Future Tooth Loss with Gum Disease Therapy from Dr. Share Today

February 15, 2015

170083016Many recent studies have shown that the health of your teeth and gums are a good indicator of your overall health. Gum disease is caused by plaque and tarter build up. Even if you brush and floss every day, some plaque will not be removed and will harden to form tartar. Only a professional dental cleaning can remove these harmful deposits. In the early stages, gum disease is usually painless, and many patients are completely unaware of its presence. In the more advanced stages, gum disease can cause sore and bleeding gums along with painful chewing and loosening teeth. Advanced gum disease has also been linked to more systemic medical conditions like heart disease, kidney disease and stroke. The only way to stop gum disease from wreaking havoc on your good health is preventive dental cleanings and comprehensive gum disease therapyMake an appointment with Dr. Share for the gum disease therapy you need today. Dr. Share is a highly qualified general and restorative dentist conveniently located in the heart of the Boston Financial District, now proudly restoring smiles daily throughout Government Center, Downtown Crossing, Beacon Hill, Back Bay, and the surrounding communities.

Will You Develop Gum Disease?

Gum disease is never harmless, but can range from simple inflammation to chronic disease. The two main stages of gum disease are gingivitis and periodontitis. With gingivitis, your gums may become red, swollen and bleed after brushing or flossing. Gingivitis can be easily treated with improved oral hygiene and regular dental cleanings. When gingivitis goes untreated, it can advance to the more serious form of gum disease, periodontitis. With periodontitis, your gums may pull away from your teeth and form deep pockets of infection. At this point, your body’s immune system will begin to fight the bacteria as the plaque spreads and grows below the gum line. Bacterial toxins and the body’s natural response mechanisms will start to destroy your bone and the connective tissues that hold your teeth in place. In a short amount of time, the bones, gums, and tissues that support the teeth are left in ruins, ultimately resulting in the loss of your natural teeth.

Can Gum Disease Be Reversed?

In most cases, yes. Gum disease therapy focuses on controlling and eliminating infection. The number and types of treatment necessary to do this will vary, depending on how far your gum disease has advanced. All treatments require that you improve upon your daily oral hygiene routine. In addition, Dr. Share will use deep cleaning treatments like scaling and root planing, to remove the harmful plaque and tarter deposits. Scaling involves the gentle scraping off of tartar from above and below the gum line, while root planing smoothes out rough spots on the tooth root where bacteria accumulates, helping to remove the bacteria that contributes to the disease.

Restore Your Smile with Dental Implants

October 15, 2014

177232118Many people take their smiles seriously, making sure that it looks the best it can at all times. Many people consider a smile a first impression, and when you surround yourself with friends, loved ones, and coworkers, you want to be sure you make a positive, lasting impression. Unfortunately, if you have teeth missing from your smile, you may find it difficult to be as outgoing as you would like to be. Having a smile that is not complete can be detrimental both to your oral health and the health of your body, and many people may not know what to do to restore their smiles back to their former glory. Fortunately, Dr. Jack B. Share is able to restore the smiles of his patients with dental implants at his Boston, MA dental office.

The reason why replacing missing teeth is so important is because it can put your oral health and your bodily health at risk. If left untreated, not having a full smile can put you more at risk for a misaligned bite, gum disease, and TMJ. Also, not having a complete smile can cause the other teeth in your smile to shift in order to make up for the extra space. Our tooth’s root acts as an anchor to keep your teeth in place, and when that is removed, the effects can be detrimental.

It is important to schedule a consultation with Dr. Share to make sure you are a candidate for dental implants. He will evaluate your smile in its current state, review your medical history, and check your bone density. If you are a candidate for dental implants, a titanium post will be embedded into your jaw. This creates a secure bond, and, over time and will proper healing, the post will fuse with the bone in your jaw, promoting new bone growth. After healing, the crown is added atop the implant. The crown looks just like a tooth, so your new smile will look as natural as possible. If you would like Dr. Share’s help restoring your smile using dental implants, contact our office today!
