Hi, I’m Dr. Todd Shatkin, and welcome to the Aesthetic Associates Centre once again. You know, you can lose a tooth for a couple reasons. You can get it knocked out from an injury, you can have bad tooth decay and have a tooth that can’t be restored, or you can lose it because of gum disease, periodontal disease.
No matter what the problem is, we can solve it at the Aesthetic Associates Centre. If you’ve got severe gum disease, periodontal disease, bad breath, pockets, bleeding gums, anything like that, you need to go to the dentist. It’s very important for you to get to the dentist because that’s infection, and that infection can spread through your body, through your blood stream. It can go to your heart, go to your other organs, and it can even cause strokes and heart attacks.
Many people are not aware that periodontal infection can go through your bloodstream and cause other medical problems. It’s critical. It’s something that you need to take care of. Get to the dentist, get a consultation, and let’s see what needs to be done to help your gum disease problem. If you have bleeding gums when you brush your teeth, it’s a tell-tale sign that you’ve got some gum problems.
Don’t put it off. Go see the dentist. I’d be happy to see you in our office. We have many, many hygienists working in our building, who are skilled at periodontal therapy, and will help you solve your problem.
If some of your teeth can’t be saved because they’re too far gone, because they’ve had too much bone loss or too much gum disease, we’ll just take those teeth out and replace them with mini dental implants so you won’t be without teeth, even for a day; you’ll always have teeth in your mouth.
Are you or a loved one dealing with gum disease in Buffalo, NY? Contact Dr. Todd Shatkin for a free consultation at the Aesthetic Associates Centre. I look forward to seeing you when you come in.
