Gum disease is a serious condition that many of us tend to underestimate. Many people assume that they could only get it by smoking and other vices. It may be true, but acquiring gum disease is not only limited to smoking. Not taking care of your oral hygiene can also be one of the causes.

What is Periodontal Treatment?

Periodontal, or gum disease, is the number one cause of tooth loss in adults, especially in adult men and women 40 to 60 years old. So it is very important that you know the early signs and symptoms of gum disease to treat it at its early stages. Gum disease is an infection of the gum tissue that can damage and eventually result in loss of teeth. As a result, the gums become red, swollen, or tender between your teeth. As it advances, more symptoms develop, such as pain in the gums when you eat cold foods or hot foods. Other symptoms include bleeding of the gums and receding of the gums. If left untreated, gum disease can lead to bone loss around your teeth, eventually causing teeth to loosen or fall out. To prevent further damage and successfully treat it, proper treatment should start as soon as possible. Treating early will save your teeth and to avoid gum disease from getting worse. One effective way of treating it is through professional teeth cleaning performed by a dentist or dental hygienist who can perform deep cleanings. This procedure may seem scary, but it should not be as the dentist will help you relax during the treatment to enjoy a pain-free experience. If you have questions about the treatment method, you can ask our dentist here at Keels Family & Cosmetic Dentistry for an explanation and what to expect during your procedure.

Periodontal Treatment | Gingivitis Dental Treatment

Gingivitis is another kind of gum disease. Unlike periodontitis, gingivitis is less severe, but it can still be harmful to the teeth, and not only that, it can also lead to other more serious health problems. Just like most cases of gum disease, early detection is very important with gingivitis. So the best way to prevent it is to maintain good oral hygiene habits and visit your dentist regularly for a check-up. To treat gingivitis, deep cleanings must be done by a professional dentist. Gingivitis is very common with people who do not take good care of their oral hygiene. It is characterized by red, swollen, and tender gums around the teeth. Mild cases of gingivitis may only require professional cleaning, but in severe cases, antibiotics may be required to stop or slow down any further infection.

The symptoms of gum disease may not be very obvious, but it can also lead to more serious health problems such as heart attack, stroke, and diabetes. So please visit our dentist here at Keels Family & Cosmetic Dentistry if you experience any symptoms of gum disease so that we can provide you with some effective treatment.

How Does Gum Disease Happen?

Bacteria around the teeth cause gum disease. In addition, the plaque that forms between your teeth and gums can lead to an infection which will cause the gums to become red, swollen, tender, and painful. The plaque also releases harmful toxins, breaking down your gum tissues and bone. This condition may eventually lead to your teeth falling out. Gum disease is one of the leading causes of tooth loss in adults. It can cause suffering and discomfort. It can also affect other parts of your body, not just your oral health.
