Periodontal (gum) disease is common among American adults today. Periodontal disease occurs when our gums become inflamed which results in a major damage to soft tissue and bones that support the teeth.
It is essential to seek treatment for gum diseases so as to avoid serious complications and improve the quality of your oral health.
What causes periodontal disease?
Periodontal disease is caused when plaque bacteria that accumulate on our teeth are not removed by regular brushing and flossing. Plaque that is not removed turns into tartar which allows the bacteria to infect your gums and teeth. The damage done to bone and fibers that hold the teeth in place become irreversible. The gums begin to form a pocket below the gum line further encouraging penetration and growth of plaque bacteria. In order to prevent further damage and restore your teeth, a professional periodontal therapy and improved personal hygiene are required.
How do you know if you have periodontal disease?
You may not know you have periodontal disease until it has advanced. Symptoms include:
· Red or swollen gums
· Loose teeth
· Bad breathe that won’t go away
· Sensitive teeth
· Bleeding or tender gums
How to get rid of periodontal disease
There are different types of treatment options that aim to control the infection of periodontal disease. When you come for your periodontal disease treatment at our facility, Dr. Flora Stenger will take into consideration your medical history to identify the underlying causes of the disease. She will examine your gums to check for any signs of inflammation. The dentist will also take an X-ray to determine if there’s bone loss.
Depending on the extent of your periodontal disease, Dr. Flora Stenger may recommend any or a combination of the following treatment options to help relieve the symptoms.
Deep cleaning involves both scaling and root planing to remove the plaque from your teeth. This helps in removing bacteria that contribute to periodontal disease.
Depending on the severity of the periodontal disease, the dentist may recommend medications alongside surgery to get rid of the gum disease. Some of the medications you’ll be given include antibiotic gel, prescription antimicrobial mouth rinse, antibiotic microspheres and enzyme suppressant.
Whether it is scaling or root planning or medication treatment option, any type treatment works best if you keep good oral hygiene as well as maintain healthy life choices like quitting smoking. Proper brushing and effective oral hygiene go a long way toward keeping periodontal disease at bay.
