Alcohol and Gum Disease

Posted on 8/13/2015 by Leslie Davis
A group of people smiling and drinking together.Alcoholism is known to cause a variety of issues, but one that often goes overlooked is the risk of gum disease. The toxicity of alcohol can cause your gums to suffer advanced gum disease, which puts you at risk for tooth loss and gum recession.

How Alcohol Affects Gums

There are many ways that alcohol can affect your gums. The most obvious is the irritation that it causes to the tissues of your gums. This makes your gums weak, making it harder for them to fight off the bacteria that attack them. When this occurs, you start to experience recessed gums and excessive infection within the pockets of your gums.

In addition to the direct impact is the indirect ways alcohol affects your gums. Most alcoholics do not have the best hygiene habits, including oral hygiene. This means that you are likely skipping the need to brush and floss your teeth every day, which heightens your risk for gum disease. In addition, if you consistently drink alcohol, it is unlikely that you eat a healthy diet, which your gums need in order to stay healthy. If you are nutrient deficient, your gums will suffer as a result.

If you are an alcoholic and have not had a dental checkup recently, it may be time to have your gums checked. If gum disease is caught in its earliest stages, we can help to reverse it. If it is in its advanced stages, we can help to manage it, but there is no cure. The sooner you catch it, however, the more likely it is that we will help you save your natural teeth.

Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged.

excellent care and attention

Once again, I want to thank you for all the excellent care and attention you so masterfully extended to me last year. I walked in terrified, with a tooth falling out, and left after wonderful treatment- better educated and with a transplant and confidence.

I have highly recommended you to my family and friends and join your many fans and satisfied patients.
