Gingivitis & Periodontal (gum) disease
Gingivitis and periodontal (gum) disease are two common dental conditions that can cause inflammation and damage to the gums. Gingivitis is the early stage of gum disease, characterized by redness, swelling, and bleeding of the gums. If left untreated, it can progress into periodontal disease, which can lead to more serious complications such as tooth loss and bone damage.
The benefits of treating gingivitis and periodontal disease are numerous. By addressing these conditions early on, patients can prevent further damage to the gums and teeth and reduce the risk of developing more serious health problems. Additionally, treating gum disease can improve the appearance of the smile and boost self-confidence.
The solutions for gingivitis and periodontal disease depend on the severity of the condition. In the early stages, professional dental cleanings and improved oral hygiene habits such as brushing and flossing regularly may be enough to reverse the condition. For more advanced cases, treatments such as scaling and root planing, antibiotics, and surgical procedures may be necessary to remove bacteria and plaque buildup and restore gum health.
