Gum sickness is an irritation of the gumline that adversely impacts the bone which encompasses and supports your teeth. Gum Treatment also called Periodontal Disease, starts with bacterial development in the mouth which leads to deterioration of teeth and gum health. Almost 70% of individuals are impacted by this infection in their life. However, many people do not know about this serious predominant infection and therefore Gum Treatment became very important issue to know about.
The prime factor responsible for Gum Disease is negligence of oral cleanliness which includes irregular brushing and inappropriate flossing. Apart from this general factor there are specific reasons that increases the risk of periodontitis includes:
• Poor oral health habits
• Smoking or chewing tobacco
• Hormonal changes, caused due to pregnancy or menopause
• Inadequate nutrition, including vitamin C deficiency
• Dry mouth or changes in the gums caused by medications.
• Conditions that causes lowered immunity, such as leukaemia, HIV/AIDS, and cancer treatment
• Gums receded due to diseases such as diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis and Crohn's.
• Swollen or puffy gums.
• Gums that are turned to bright red, dark red, or purple in color
• Gums that feel tender when touched
• Gums that bleed easily
• Pink-tinged toothbrush after brushing
• blood coming out when brushing or flossing your teeth
• Bad breath
• Pus between your teeth and gums
• Loose teeth or loss of teeth
• Painful chewing
• New spaces developing between your teeth
• Receding gums, which make your teeth appear longer than they are.
• Eating disablilty
If you find any of these indications, then it is advisable to schedule an appointment immediately and we, Dr. Vinisha Pandey Dentistry ensures all successful aspects and treatments for securing you dental health.
Treatment performed by a dental specialist. The objective of periodontitis treatment is to completely clean the pockets around teeth and prevent the harm to encompassing bone. There are two ways for performing Gum Treatment by dental specialists for repairing your teeth and gums. First, the Nonsurgical treatment and the Surgical Treatment.
Nonsurgical medicines are one way of treatment which might include less advanced techniques, and these are:
Cleaning of the teeth by a dentist. Plaque and tartar (plaque that builds up and hardens on the tooth surface and can only be eliminated by professional cleaning) are removed from above and below the gum line of all teeth during a routine check-up by your dentist or dental hygienist.
Scaling and root planing are two procedures that can be used to improve the appearance of your smile. This is a nonsurgical thorough cleaning process that involves scraping plaque and tartar from above and below the gum line (scaling), as well as smoothing rough areas on the tooth root (planing). Smoothing the rough areas removing germs and giving the gums a clean surface to reconnect to the teeth. If your dentist or periodontist concludes that you have plaque and calculus (hardened plaque), then youneed scaling and root planing.
You swish this in your mouth with your routine brushing to help control bacteria in mouth.
Scaling and root planing, a nonsurgical procedure, may be all that is required to treat gum disease in certain patients. When the tissue around the teeth is unhealthy and cannot be healed with nonsurgical methods, surgery is required.
The gums are lifted back and tartar is removed during this operation. In other circumstances, the injured bone's uneven surfaces are polished to reduce the number of places where disease-causing germs can hide. The gums are then positioned around the tooth in such a way that the tissue fits tightly around it. This treatment lowers the space between the gum and the tooth, reducing the places where harmful bacteria can thrive and the risk of major health issues linked with periodontal disease.
To restore bone that has been lost by gum disease, this surgery involves using fragments of your own bone or artificial bone. The grafts serve as a foundation for bone development, restoring tooth stability. Tissue engineering is a new technique that encourages your body to rebuild bone and tissue at a faster rate.
This procedure enhances thin gums or fills in areas where gums have receded. Grafted tissue are taken from the thick side of the mouth and is stitched in place, adding tissue to the affected area.
This therapy stimulates bone and gum tissue development after the bone supporting your teeth has been removed. A thin piece of mesh-like fabric is put between the bone and gum tissue in combination with flap surgery. This prevents gum tissue from developing into the bone, allowing the bone and connective tissue to regenerate and provide greater support for the teeth.
Reduces the appearance of shallow cavities in the bone caused by mild to advanced bone loss. The bone around the tooth is modified after flap surgery to reduce cavities. This makes it more difficult for germs to accumulate and grow.
