Patients Fight Periodontal Disease and Preserve Heart Health In Dothan, AL Area
The health and hygiene of your mouth can affect your overall well-being. For example, research has demonstrated a connection between atrial fibrillation (or “irregular heartbeat”) and advanced periodontitis (or “gum disease”), emphasizing the need for healthy dental habits and regular cleanings to prevent larger-scale health problems.

Dr. Nathan Pfister has a deep understanding of the correlation between your oral health and your heart health, as well as the other ways in which your oral health can affect your body. He’ll work with you to keep your mouth healthy and comfortable and prevent gum disease before it progresses.

How to Fight Gum Disease

The best form of treatment for gum disease is prevention. Regular brushing, flossing, and check-ups with Dr. Pfister can go a long way to keep your gums healthy and free of infection. Early gum disease symptoms are easily ignored, consisting only of mild irritation, bleeding, or pinkness. However, if left untreated, these small inflammations can progress to more painful symptoms, potentially threatening your teeth and leading to additional, serious health problems. Recent studies show that patients with periodontitis showed a significantly higher likelihood of developing an atrial flutter that would lead to thromboembolic disease and even heart attack.

Dr. Pfister offers a variety of effective treatments to battle gum disease and keep it from progressing. Your first line of defense is deep cleaning. Dr. Pfister will review your oral hygiene techniques and help you ensure they are useful and healthy. He may also perform scaling and root planing in some cases, deep cleaning the pockets between your gums and teeth. In some advanced cases, a gum graft or other surgical options may be necessary to remove inflamed or infected tissue. Whatever your symptoms, Dr. Pfister will work closely with you to ensure your oral health and the health of your body. He will keep you informed about the benefits of potential treatments without pushing anything unnecessary. Together you’ll develop a treatment plan that suits your needs.

If you have symptoms or want to start fighting gum disease before it starts, schedule an appointment with Dr. Pfister today by calling (855) 939-5566.
