How Genetics Play a Part in Gum Disease

Advice about Gum Disease that shouldn’t be Ignored 

CBS News article indicates that the possibility of hereditary gum disease may be caused by reduced levels of a particular key enzyme known as Cathepsin C. This reduced enzyme coupled with poor dental hygiene can create the perfect storm for chronic dental problems beginning with swollen and bleeding gums.

Gum Disease is More Common than You Think

The enzyme Cathepsin C is responsible for triggering a positive reaction against 500 different bacteria that try to attack the mouth daily. With a reduced enzyme Cathepsin C, your chances for developing periodontal disease are greater than the norm of nearly one in three people.

Testing for this genetic flaw can be extremely costly and time consuming. The fastest and easiest way to prevent bacteria from attacking your gums and the attachments of your teeth is to be diligent in maintaining good oral health practices; daily brushing, flossing and rinsing with a preventative mouth wash and regularly scheduled dental exams.

Take Charge in Preventing the Persistence of Gum Disease 

Gum disease, left untreated, will lead to loose teeth that will eventually fall out. Even more serious are the overall effects to your heart and blood from bacteria that enter the body through seriously infected gums. Not paying attention of the signs of swollen or bleeding gums accompanied by deep pocketed gums can have long term devastating effects on your overall health.

If you see problems with your gums, catch it in the earliest stages by immediately contacting your dental professional Dr. Ron Rotem.
