New self-diagnosis tools are being developed in the form of a chewing gum which indicates if someone has an inflammatory condition in the mouth. This should lead to early diagnosis and treatment, preventing tissue damage and possible bone loss.
– Dental implants can occasionally trigger an inflammatory response
– Schedule regular checkups so your dentist can monitor your teeth and general oral health
– Seek help immediately if you experience any dental problems
Early treatment of any problem is always advisable.
“If there is an inflammation in the oral cavity, a bittering agent is released while chewing the gum.”
