The best way to keep your gums healthy is with regular brushing, flossing and a professional cleaning every six months. However, sometimes, gum disease will occur. If you notice any signs of gum disease like puffy, swollen or bleeding gums, call Apollo Dental Clinic right away. Left untreated, gum disease can lead to serious oral health concerns including tooth loss.
Periodontal disease, also known as gum disease, is a condition that can affect your teeth, gums and even your jawbone. It ranges from mild (gingivitis) to severe (periodontitis). Gum disease is caused by a buildup of plaque which causes inflammation and infection in the gums. When gingivitis occurs, you may probably notice some bleeding during brushing and flossing. At this point, treatment is relatively easy, and the damage can still be repaired.
If gum disease is allowed to progress, treatment becomes more complicated. Bone and tissue that support your teeth can be irreversibly damaged. If you believe you have gum disease, it’s imperative that you contact us and receive treatment as early as possible.
Scaling and root planing is often considered gold standard treatment for the early stages of gum disease. The scaling process involves using dental tools to reach below the gum line to remove unwanted bacteria. Then, root planing involves smoothing out rough areas on the root surfaces to help prevent future buildups. This procedure is very effective in stopping gum disease and helping to restore oral health.
