Periodontal maintenance is important because healthy gums are essential to a beautiful smile. Unhealthy gums can recede and become red and swollen. As gum disease, the facial bones are destroyed causing teeth to loosen or fall out.

Periodontal Disease Trenton MI
Periodontal diseases are infections of the gums that gradually destroy the support of your natural teeth. Dental plaque is the primary cause of gum disease. They may cause them to turn red, swell, and bleed easily. If this irritation is prolonged, the gums separate from the teeth causing pockets (spaces) to form. As periodontal diseases progress, the supporting gum tissue and bone that holds teeth in place deteriorate. If left untreated, this leads to tooth loss. This disease damages the teeth, gum, and jawbone of more than 80 percent of Americans by age 45.
The cause of TMJ Disorders can be multifactorial in nature. Differing theories exist to explain the causes of TMD. Treatment protocols have been established based on these divergent theories. TMJ treatments include reshaping the biting surfaces of the teeth and eliminating spots of excessive pressures where the teeth are brought into contact, bite splint therapy using a custom-fitted and adjusted plastic bite guard, braces, replacement of fillings, reconstruction of badly worn and damaged teeth, physical therapy, medications, or surgery.
