Gum Disease Treatment & Prevention Programmes

Gum Disease Treatments + Prevention Programmes
Gum disease (Gingivitis and Periodontal Disease) begins with bacterial growth in your mouth and may end if it is not properly treated, with tooth loss due to destruction of the tissue that surrounds your teeth.

Gingivitis is gum inflammation that will occur before periodontitis. Most people get gingivitis at some point in their lives, but its mild symptoms make it easy to ignore and without treatment, it can cause many issues. Luckily, gingivitis is easily reversible by brushing your teeth, flossing, and having regular dental cleanings and checkups.
If gingivitis remains untreated, a person with periodontitis has much more serious issues. The inner layer of the gum and bone pull away from the teeth and form pockets. These small spaces between teeth and gums collect debris and can become infected. The body’s immune system fights the bacteria as the plaque spreads and grows below the gum line.

Toxins produced by the bacteria in plaque, as well as the body’s “good” enzymes involved in fighting infections, start to break down the bone and connective tissue that hold teeth in place. Thereby, tooth loss can occur. Gum disease is the main cause of tooth loss in adults.

Some symptoms of gum disease to watch out for are:

– Gums that bleed during brushing
– Receding gums
– Bad breath or a persistent bad taste
– Red, swollen gums. Healthy gums should be pink and firm
– Loose or shifting teeth

Gum Disease Treatment - Appointment Information

The goals of gum disease treatment are to promote reattachment of healthy gums to teeth, this means to reduce swelling and reduce the depth of pockets. This, therefore, reduces the risk of infection and stops the disease from progressing.

Treatment options depend on the stage of disease, how you may have responded to earlier treatments and your overall health. Options range from nonsurgical therapies that control bacterial growth, to surgery to restore supportive tissues.

Nonsurgical treatments can include professional dental cleaning, and also scaling and root planing. Surgical treatments can include flap surgery/pocket reduction surgery, bone grafts and guided tissue regeneration.

If you have any concerns about gum disease or your overall oral health, don’t hesitate to book a check-up and chat with one of our experienced dentists.

Frequently Asked Questions

Teeth stains have many causes; oral care, food & drink or even medical treatments. Fortunately, there are many treatment options for teeth stains. As well as brushing and flossing twice a day, you should visit a dentist at least twice a year for a check up and hygienist clean.

Plaque is a build-up of bacteria in a film on your teeth. Being a film, its soft and is easily removed by toothbrush and floss. Calculus and tartar are the same things, hardened plaque becomes calculus. Calculus is the yellow or brown staining you see on your teeth, typically between the bottom front teeth and along the gums. Once calculus is formed, it’s no longer possible to clean it off by yourself, and you will need to have your teeth professionally cleaned by a Hygienist.

The right answer for you as an individual depends on your dental health, but as a general rule, you should see the dental hygienist every six months.

There are a few less common and known causes that bring about gum disease. These include hormonal changes, illness and certain medications, all of which can make your gums more sensitive and prone to gingivitis.

A family history of dental disease can also be a factor to be aware of. Smoking can also make it harder for gum tissue to repair itself.

As well as brushing and flossing every day, there are many lifestyle changes that can reduce the risk of gum disease. These include; quitting smoking, reducing stress when possible, maintaining a balanced diet and avoiding clenching or grinding your teeth.

When you visit for a check-up/ clean, the dentist will be looking at your gums – if they bleed, are swollen or have any depth between the gum and the tooth. The dentist will also check for teeth movement and sensitivity. Your jawbone can also be looked at to help detect any breakdown of the bone surrounding your teeth.
