  • “I had an emergency dental issue and I was so worried I could not be seen right away. Not only did they see me the same day I called, but it was an excellent experience from beginning to end. Outstanding practice. Highly recommend. I found my new dentist!”

    “Dr. Singh and all his staff are caring, pleasant knowledgeable and professional. What I like best about Dr. Singh is that he is not pushy about treatment. He tells you what needs to be done and lets you make the decision when and if you want it done.”

How does gum disease affect my overall health?

In addition to causing inflammation, infection, and possible tooth and bone loss in your mouth, gum disease can contribute to other medical problems, not limited to your oral health. Studies have shown gum disease may increase the risk of many health conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, stroke, heart attacks, and certain forms of cancer.

Some studies have determined a correlation between gum disease and reproductive problems. It can lead to low birth weight and pre-term births in pregnant women. The infection in your gums can spread to other areas of the body, leading to systemic problems. Advanced gum disease can also contribute to poor nutrition, as the soreness, inflammation and tooth loss can make eating difficult and painful.

At Apollonia Dental, we take gum disease very seriously. Prevention and early treatment is important not just to your oral health, but to your overall health. Our staff is trained in spotting early signs of gum disease and the best ways to treat it. We can teach you how you can prevent gum disease through proper home care routines, dietary choices, and regular check-ups and cleanings at our Middleton, CT dental office.

Call and schedule an exam and cleaning today and learn how to prevent gum disease tomorrow!
