Frequently Asked Questions
Why Is Dental Health Care So Important?
The facts of American’s dental health tell the story. Tooth decay affects more than 25% of U.S. children aged 2 to 5 and half of adolescents. Adults aged 35 to 44 have a 1 in 7 chance at having gum disease, rate increases to 1 in 4 after the age of 65.(1) Over time, tooth decay leads to drillings with fillings and sometimes dental implants or tooth extractions. Getting in front of these issues early with preventative dental care will improve your overall oral health.
What Is Periodontal Disease?
Periodontal disease is the result of bacterial infections and inflammation around the gums and bone. Early stages of the disease shows as gingivitis, which is swollen gums and inflammation around the teeth. Inflammation is a natural response when harmful bacteria is present.
As the condition progresses into chronic periodontitis, the gums may pull away from your teeth and decay. This leads to bone loss and teeth that become loose or fall out.
The CDC has reported that 47.2% of adults over the age of 30 have some sort of periodontitis. (2) This statistic moves up to over 70% in seniors 65 years and older. If you are experiencing redness or bleeding in your gums, you’ll want to choose a plan that offers Periodontal dental services.
