Periodontal Therapy Edmonton

Periodontal Therapy Edmonton

Maintaining good dental hygiene is crucial for preventing oral diseases like cavities and periodontal disease, which can silently impact both oral and overall health. Periodontal disease affects the tissues around and supporting teeth, causing inflammation and infection.

Periodontal Disease

Periodontal disease, more commonly known as “gum disease”, is a leading cause of tooth loss in Canadian adults, and 75% of North Americans over 35 have some form of it. Regular dental checkups can help detect and prevent gum disease early. However, it can develop without any warning signs and often goes undetected until it becomes severe. In a recent study, 7 out of 10 people exhibited one or more symptoms of periodontal disease despite 8 out of 10 believing they didn't have it.

Good oral hygiene is important, but it's not the only factor that affects oral health. Recent research shows that oral health is deeply connected to overall health. As a Registered Dental Hygienist, Tianna assesses your medical history, diet, and lifestyle, as well as your oral tissues, to develop personalized treatment plans aimed at keeping your whole body healthy.

Nutritional Counselling

Nutritional counselling is one such service offered by Tianna at Motivo Dental. This goes beyond reducing sugars and acids to prevent cavities. Nutrient deficiencies, such as low Vitamin C levels, compromise connective tissue healing and increase the risk of gum disease. Without enough Vitamin A, saliva production decreases, increasing the risk of cavities.

Recreational Drug Cessation

Recreational drug cessation is another service offered by Tianna. Any form of combustible smoking, including tobacco and cannabis, significantly increases the risk of periodontitis. Other drugs, such as e-cigarettes, chewing tobacco, and hookah, also have risks and complications.

Oral-Systemic Link

Oral health is connected to systemic diseases such as cardiovascular and respiratory diseases, Alzheimer's, and cancer. Tianna emphasizes the importance of maintaining good oral health and sees it as part of an interconnected web of health. The goal is to prevent oral disease and address early signs to avoid irreversible damage.
