Dr. Michael Aiello Recognizes Cancer Control Month by Raising Awareness of the Connection Between Cancer and Gum Disease in Sterling Heights, MI
April is Cancer Control Month and Dr. Michael Aiello encourages gum disease treatment for Sterling Heights, MI residents as a way to prevent the risk of some cancers. Taking action when early signs of gum disease are present, such as bleeding gums when flossing, can give patients improved options for treatment and overall health, as oral bacteria can travel to other parts of the body affecting other medical conditions.
Sterling Heights, MI (PRWEB) April 09, 2014
Dentist Dr. Michael Aiello is highlighting the need for effective gum disease treatment for Sterling Heights, MI area patients this April in support of Cancer Control Month. Periodontal infection can spread to other systems and organs in the body and has been linked with an increased risk of multiple diseases including heart disease, diabetes and some cancers. Patients who experience swollen gums or bleeding gums when flossing should seek dental treatment in order to reduce their risk of these serious health conditions.
Following only heart disease, cancer is the second leading cause of death in the United States today. Any form of cancer can be impacted by infections in other parts of the body. Given that gum disease is an infection in the mouth, it too can contribute to a patient’s chance of developing cancer. There are multiple forms of treatment that can provide proper gum disease treatment for Sterling Heights residents.
Awareness of the early signs of periodontal disease can alert people to the need for intervention. These signs include tenderness, redness and swelling in any portion of the gums. Bleeding gums when flossing can also signal that infection is present. The best course of action when such symptoms are noticed is to make a dental appointment for consultation. Once diagnosed, periodontitis can be treated. Depending upon the severity of the infection and other conditions in the mouth, the appropriate gum disease treatment for Sterling Heights patients can be provided. In addition to increased cancer risks, untreated gum disease can lead to more serious oral health conditions such as tooth or jaw bone loss. It can also prevent a patient from being able to successfully receive dental implants when needed.
Bleeding gums when flossing is an early sign of infection and, when heeded, can help patients improve their oral health and their overall health as well. Dr. Aiello and his staff take pride in offering a range of gum disease treatment options to help their patients remain healthy.
