Gum disease patients can seek affordable treatment
Updated: 10/27/2010 3:00:17 PM

Gum disease patients can seek affordable treatment According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, gum disease has been linked to stroke, premature births and diabetes. Individuals who suffer from this dental problem may find that it is important to seek treatment, as it could lead to the development of other health risks.

Recently, a study conducted at the University of Michigan found that a drug which is given to osteoporosis patients may help to heal bone wounds developed by gum disease patients.

For the research, patients who had been diagnosed with a chronic form of this dental disease received either periodontal surgery on one part of their mouth or were administered teriparatid, an osteoporosis medication, as well as given vitamin D and calcium supplements.

The group which took the supplements had a 29 percent improvement in their bone-level measurements. The individuals who received surgery saw improvements, although these were minimal.

Researchers noted that these findings are important and could help many people because gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss in adults.

There are low-cost ways that individuals can find treatment if they have gum disease. Discount dental plans provide affordable plans for these people.
