Dental inflammation can affect your overall health. When you cut yourself and a scab forms, that’s an example of the inflammatory process at work. While your body is usually very adept at healing itself, there are unfortunately many situations where the natural inflammatory response actually makes a problem worse!
Inflammation in the mouth can begin a frustrating cycle that can’t be resolved without the help of a skilled dentist. Inflammatory processes in the mouth lead to:
- Tooth decay
- Gum disease
- Tooth and bone loss
As an experienced dentist, I want to educate you on the inflammatory process and how it can affect your life and dental health.
