Biological dental care in Turlock, CA addresses the importance of oral systemic health
When it comes to biological dental care, no one in the Turlock, CA area knows the importance of this more than the team at Ramsin K. Davoud Family and Cosmetic Dentistry. Patients in the area are welcome to ask our team about the advantages of biological dental care, especially when it comes to the oral systemic connection.
How your smile affects your body
Many don’t realize that the mouth affects the body. However, a dentist who provides biological dental care understands the link. The oral systemic connection is the link between the health of the mouth and the health of the rest of the body. Patients often don’t know that when they have a disease within the mouth, it can impact the entire body. Periodontal disease, which is a bacterial infection, can enter into the bloodstream and wreak havoc on other organs. For example, patients who have periodontal disease, or “gum disease,” are at a higher risk of developing complications including:
- Low birth weight babies (for pregnant women)
- Heart disease
What is periodontal disease?
Periodontal disease is an infection that can result from poor oral hygiene. When patients do not brush and floss properly and do not visit their dentist on a regular basis, they are at risk of developing periodontal disease. This condition is an infection that can be treated with a combination of antibiotics and direct dental care. Our team of professionals encourages patients to seek treatment for their condition as soon as it is diagnosed, since untreated gum disease can become a serious problem. In the earlier stages, it is much easier to treat with a deep cleaning. Unfortunately, periodontal disease left to progress can become a much bigger problem, resulting in bone loss, gum loss, and tooth loss. The infection is also carried throughout the body through the oral systemic connection and can be very harmful elsewhere in the body.

What treatment options are available for gum disease?
The early stage, known as gingivitis, can be treated with a deep cleaning in the dental office. Patients are also educated on how to better clean and floss their teeth so that the condition can be reversed. However, the later stages may require treatment such as topical or oral antibiotic medications or with invasive procedures such as scaling and root planing. We encourage patients to keep their smile healthy to avoid the development of this condition altogether, as it can be difficult to address once it is present.
