GUM DISEASE TREATMENT
If you don’t clean your teeth often, bacteria can grow on their surfaces and in the spaces between them. Plaque, made up of bacteria, causes tooth decay, gum inflammation, and calculus. One of the signs of gingivitis is gums that bleed. When the gums become inflamed, they become discoloured, change shape, and cause bad breath. More teeth are lost from gingivitis than from dental caries.
WHAT DO THE Symptoms OF GUM DISEASE LOOK LIKE?
- Gums that are sensitive and red.
- Gums that can be easily pulled away from the teeth.
- Gums that bleed when you brush them.
- Swollen gums.
- Gingival recessions.
- Black calculus around the gums.
- Teeth that move around.
- Bad breath.
WHAT HAPPENED TO CAUSE GUM DISEASES?
Germs are the primary factor in the development of gum disease. Plaque, made up of bacteria, sticks to the teeth and gums and hurts both. Plaque should be removed from one’s teeth daily by brushing and flossing the teeth. If plaque can’t be removed, it can hurt the health of your teeth. Plaque changes into a substance called tartar on the teeth. This makes the gums sore. You can pull the gums out of the gums, and the fibers that hold the gums to the teeth are broken. Bacteria can get to the bone as the disease gets worse. If this disease is not treated, the teeth may need to be removed. You might lose a tooth if you don’t treat a gum infection. Other things can also cause gum disease. Gum problems can be caused by genes, drug use, hormones, stress, smoking, gnashing or squeezing the teeth, poor nutrition, diabetes, bad or improper fillings, and other wrong dental treatments.

HOW TO PREVENT THE GUM DISEASES?
Taking good care of your teeth is the most important step to protect yourself from developing gum disease. Plaque should be removed from the teeth every day by brushing and flossing. Additionally, it is very important to see the dentist consistently. Plaque and tartar are much less likely to form on teeth properly cleaned and flossed consistently. But maybe it’s not over for good. The dentist should take out dental stones and plaque in places where oral care isn’t good enough.
WHAT IS THE TREATMENT FOR GUM DISEASES?
During treatment for periodontal disease, plaque and dental stones are taken off the teeth and the smooth surface of the roots. When gingival diseases are caught early, the root surface, plaque, and dental calculus can be cleaned well, and regular oral care can be done. However, surgery might be the only treatment option if the disease becomes more severe. The dental stones in the periodontal pockets around the teeth treatment are taken out during surgery. There is also a smooth root surface, no pocket, and a gingival shape that is easy to clean. After getting treatment for gum disease, a patient should see their doctor regularly.
