Are you pregnant or may become pregnant in the near future? You may want to think about booking an appointment to check for periodontal disease and ensure that you and your child are healthy and safe from the harms of periodontal disease and poor oral health care. Many studies have found a connection between periodontal disease and birth issues such as low term birth weight and premature birth, including most recently a 2013 study.
Non-surgical periodontal therapy is safe for pregnant women. Contact Arbutus North Dental to set up a consultation and avoid the risks associated with periodontal disease during pregnancy.
A recent study found that gum disease is associated with a higher incidence of Human Papillomavirus (HPV),which is turn has been associated with oral cancer. We recommend reading the report to better understand the effects of HPV on your oral health, and why it’s important to practice good oral health care in order to avoid issues associated with gingivitis, HPV and missing teeth.
Book an appointment with Arbutus North Dental Centre if you suspect you suffer from gum disease or if you find any usual lumps or patches in your mouth. We routinely screen for oral cancer in our patients, and we make sure that your oral health is in great shape.
