Dental Researchers Identify Jaw-Destroying Bacteria That Can Harm Your Dental Health August 5, 2013

Dental Researchers Identify Jaw-Destroying Bacteria That Can Harm Your Dental Health, Manhattan, New York

Researchers at the University of Michigan have recently identified a bacterium that causes gum disease and deteriorates the jaw. Dr. Yizu Jiao and Dr. Noahiro Inohara of the U-M Health System, found that significant bone loss can occur as a result of severe gum disease.

The main culprit is a bacterium called NI1060, which triggers the Nod1 proteins to create bone-destroying cells. The bones closest to the oral cavity are part of the jawbone and are weakened over time. To help to combat against these harmful effects, take a trip to Preferred Dental Care Chelsea.

The technology and training of highly trained professionals will ease any dental worries. The staff at Preferred Dental Care work with chair side monitors, intraoral cameras, digital X-rays, and diagnostic wax models to accurately diagnose and attend to individual conditions. Digital appointment reminders make the life of patients easier. There are also foot massages and blankets available to ensure complete comfort for every patient.

Modern dentistry has made great strides to fight the many ailments that affect oral health. Preventing gum disease is easy as long as steps are taken to follow the advice of a trusted dental professional. The experienced staff at Preferred Dental Care Chelsea will advise you on how to brush, floss, rinse, and eat properly.
