LOS ANGELES, CA, February 27, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Dr. Sam Markzar, Los Angeles dental implants
dentist, wants patients to understand the link between periodontal disease and respiratory diseases. Patients with either condition, or both conditions, should seek regular dental care as well as medical care to ensure that their conditions are treated appropriately.
Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, has two stages. In its early stages, it is characterized by shiny, inflamed gums that may bleed during brushing or flossing. As the disease progresses, the gum tissue may begin to pull away from the teeth, causing pockets to form. The pockets of bacteria will begin to deteriorate, causing teeth to become loose. Patients who believe that they may be developing gum disease, as well as patients with respiratory diseases, should seek dental care. Periodontal disease is easier to treat in its early stages, before the loss of gum tissue, bone density, and teeth occurs.
Recent studies indicate that periodontal disease may be linked to respiratory diseases. Researchers believe that the bacteria that are present in patients who have gum disease can be aspirated into the lungs. These particular bacteria can cause pneumonia and other respiratory illnesses such as chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD. Patients with periodontal disease should seek treatment to eliminate the infection before the bacteria can spread to their lungs or other parts of the body. As a result, periodontal disease should be taken seriously and treated as early as possible.
Dr. Markzar, Beverly Hills periodontist
, believes it is important for patients in all stages of oral health to get regular dental examinations and cleanings. The bacteria that are present in plaque may contribute to a number of other conditions, including respiratory disease. As a result, reducing plaque and tartar buildup is important to preventing the onset of periodontal disease and the spread of the bacteria to other parts of the body.

specialist, Dr. Markzar also places dental implants to replace missing teeth lost because of trauma or periodontal disease.
