Gum disease can affect patients of all ages and is one of the major factors contributing to bad breath, tooth pain and tooth loss.
The main cause of gum disease is bacterial plaque , a colourless film that constantly forms on your teeth.
Gum disease has two stages:
STAGE 1 – GINGIVITIS
Gingivitis is the mildest form of gum disease and is a result of the build-up of bacterial plaque forms on the teeth and also between teeth .The bacteria in the plaque release toxins that cause the gum to become swollen tender and bleeding. Gingivitis is reversible.
STAGE 2 – PERIODONTITIS
Periodontitis is the advanced stage of gum disease and can be quite destructive. Periodontitis can cause irreversible damage to the gums and supporting bone eventually resulting in tooth loss if left untreated.
The symptoms are bleeding upon brushing , bad breath, tender to bite and increase in the mobility of the teeth. Gums become inflamed and can also be tender and painful, red or swollen. Other symptoms are bad breath, tender to bite and increas in the mobility of the teeth.
Gum disease treatment options
Iin the first appointmentyour dentist will review your medical and dental history .Your teeth and gums will be examined and xrays taken to examine the bone supporting your teeth.After the information has been gathered your case will be discussed with you you and recommend the best treatment for you.
In moderate to mild cases of periodontal disease involves your dentist providing a thorough scale and clean to remove the plaque and calculus deposits. Your dentist will also provide you with information on how best to look after your teeth at home to prevent future gum disease symptoms.
For patients with more advanced periodontal disease , a more extensive clean of the teeth and root surfaces will be required. The treatment will be completed over a number of appointments and may require local anaesthetic prior to the deep scaling and cleaning (root planing) commencing.
In some cases, surgery is required to re contour the gum tissue into a shape that is easier to clean the root surfaces in deep pockets.
In the long term regular dental check up, scale and clean (removal of calculus and plaque) and careful oral hygiene technique is essential to maintain the gum health and to prevent recurrence of your gum disease.
