Gum Disease Treatment Delta

Taking care of your gums is an essential part of your oral hygiene. Gum care starts at home, with a daily hygiene routine that includes flossing to clean below the gum line. Your dentist and hygienist will monitor the health of your gums and can recommend the best gum disease treatment options if they detect signs of inflammation or periodontal (gum) disease.

What is Periodontal (Gum) Disease?

Gum disease is a progressive disease that breaks down the gum tissue and bone surrounding your teeth. It is caused by bacteria in plaque and dental calculus. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to tooth loss and contribute to other systemic health problems, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease and dementia.

According to the Canadian Dental Association, 7 in 10 adults will experience gum disease in their lifetime. The good news is gum disease is preventable and can be reversed if it’s caught early enough.

Additional Information

Early Signs of Gum Disease (Gingivitis)

Signs of early gum disease, or gingivitis, include red, swollen gums. Your gums may also be tender or bleeding. It’s important to note that gum disease is often a silent disease – many people don’t notice any symptoms until it’s in its more advanced stages.

Symptoms of periodontal (gum) disease:

  • Red, swollen or sore gums
  • Receding gums
  • Bad breath
  • Pain when chewing
  • Loose or sensitive teeth

You can treat gingivitis at home by eating a healthy diet, brushing your teeth at least twice a day and flossing daily. This will help reduce harmful bacteria in your mouth and give your gums a chance to recover.

Although you can brush away plaque, calculus (hardened plaque) can only be removed by your dental hygienist. Be sure to keep up with regular professional dental cleanings to keep hard-to-reach areas free of bacteria. Most people should get their teeth professionally cleaned at least every six months. Your hygienist may recommend more frequent cleanings depending on the condition of your teeth and gums.

Periodontics

Periodontics is a specialized field that focuses on preventing oral and gum disorders, preserving teeth, and supporting overall health. If you want a healthy, attractive smile, gum health must be a priority. At Kennedy Heights Dental Centre, we provide gentle, comprehensive periodontal care and evaluate you for any symptoms of periodontal disease and other oral health conditions.

Importance Of Periodontal Care

As homecare efforts are insufficient, everybody needs regular teeth cleaning in the dental office. Some people are more vulnerable to developing plaque and calculus than others and require more frequent professional cleanings. These cleanings remove the harmful debris accumulated on the teeth and reduce the chances of developing tooth decay. These cleanings also eliminate the bacterial buildup below the gum line to prevent and treat gum disease. If gum disease is left untreated, it advances and harms the bone tissue encircling the tooth roots. This is a reason for tooth loss, discomfort, biting and chewing strength loss, unappealing gum line, bad breath, and inflammation in other body parts.

The oral bacteria that cause gum infections can travel through the bloodstream to other parts of the body. Research has indicated that heart disease, diabetes, and osteoporosis are highly associated with periodontitis and gum infections. Maintaining healthy gums should be a top priority for achieving optimal dental health

What Is Periodontal Disease?

Periodontal disease is an advanced form of gum disease that slowly destroys the teeth and gums. It is caused by bacterial plaque—a sticky film of bacteria that forms on the teeth—which, if not removed, can irritate and inflame the gum tissues. Over time, if left untreated, the bacteria can spread below the gum line causing the gums to separate from the teeth and form spaces called pockets. These small spaces between the teeth and gums make it easier for bacteria and plaque to collect and make it more difficult for the teeth and gums to fight infection. In advanced cases, tooth decay can form within the pockets of the gums and cause tooth loss.

The primary symptoms of periodontal disease are red or swollen gums that may bleed easily; chronic bad breath; sensitive, painful, or loose teeth; and changes in bite alignment. It’s important to note that these symptoms may be signs of other oral health conditions as well, so it’s best to make an appointment with your general dentist to get a proper diagnosis.

Treatment For Periodontal Disease

Treatment for periodontal disease typically involves deep cleaning procedures followed by ongoing maintenance therapy. Deep cleanings are often done under local anesthesia and can typically include scaling, root planing, and polishing. These procedures help to remove harmful bacteria from the surface of the tooth as well as the pocket space between the teeth and gums. The health of your gums and bone structure will also be assessed during a deep clean so that the treatment can be adjusted as needed. Scaling is the careful scraping away of plaque and tartar from the tooth’s surface. Root planing involves smoothing the root surface to prevent future buildup of plaque and tartar. Finally, the tooth is then polished to remove any remaining stains and create a smoother surface that is more resistant to plaque buildup. Follow-up visits will likely be scheduled to monitor the health of your gums and ensure the disease doesn’t reoccur again.

Common Periodontal Diseases & Treatments

What Is Periodontal Disease?

It is a film of colonizing bacteria attempting to attach to the surface of teeth and feed on the carbohydrates on the teeth. The released acid erodes tooth enamel as the bacteria degrade, causing cavities and tooth decay. It is sensible to reduce sugary drinks and starchy foods and clean teeth immediately after consuming them. It would help to floss once a day and brush after meals and at bedtime to keep the bacteria away.

Calculus or Tartar

They are hardened deposits that form on the teeth, above and below the gum line. Tartar is not easily removed and generally requires removal with special instruments by a dental hygienist.
