Gum Treatment

gum1Just like any other disease, gum disease is best treated in its early stages. It does not happen overnight and you might even not know that you have gum disease. If you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms, you should call us to book a gum treatment appointment right away.

  • Permanent bad breath
  • Red or swollen gums
  • Tender or bleeding gums
  • Painful chewing
  • Loose teeth
  • Sensitive teeth

Gingivitis is the early stage of gum disease, where the infection/inflammation is affecting your gums, but hasn’t reached the bones. It can be easily controlled and treated by rigorous oral hygiene at home. Regular teeth brushing,  flossing and rinsing with a disinfectant solution (such as Chlorhexidine, or Listerine) or salt water, along with your bi-annual professional dental cleanings, which remove plague and tartar from your teeth and gum line, should control and even prevent the infection.

Periodontitis is the more advanced level of the gum infection. If your gum disease reaches this level, pockets between your teeth and gum will start forming, you’ll start losing bone structure and your teeth will start to decay. This stage of the disease requires more care and measures to eliminate the infection and control it. Our dental hygienist will most probably perform scaling and root planning, which is a non-surgical procedure of deep cleaning done under local anesthesia. The scaling procedure allows the removal of tartar that is built over and under the gum line and the root planning procedure makes the tooth smooth and free of bacterial debris and diseased tissues.
