Effects of gum disease if not treated

ATLANTA, GA, May 26, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ — The cosmetic dentist at Norcross Dental Associates believe that avoiding the dentist is bad for you, and they have scientific studies to back up that belief.

If you avoid your dentist, there is a strong likelihood that you will not be able to keep a healthy smile. Gum disease and dental decay can run rampant in your mouth without proper supervision from your dentist  and you are unlikely to realize it until you need a root canal, gum surgery or even tooth removal.

Gum disease is the most common problems that can affect your smile, but did you know that it can also affect your health? The presence of advanced gum disease has been scientifically linked to an increase in your chance to have a heart attack or stroke. Gum disease has also been linked to an increased risk of pancreatic cancer. Fortunately, gum disease can easily be treated by having regular dental checkups with your dentist
Your overall wellness also requires proper oral care, which includes regular trips to the dentist. Even something as simple as a cavity can become infected, and that infection can spread to your blood stream, from where it can spread to anywhere in your body.

“Visiting your dentist for regular dental cleaning can also help you to discover oral cancer before you experience any symptoms,” says Ken Tralongo, CEO of Tralongo Management. “Early discovery can help you to cure this cancer, which is highly deadly in cases where it is not found early.”
