GUM DISEASES AND TREATMENT - PERIDONTOLOGY
Periodontics include the treatment of early gingival problems (gingivitis) and late gingival problems (periodontitis). Gingivitis is a very common and mild form of gum (periodontal) disease that causes swelling (inflammation) of your gums. Because gingivitis can be so mild, you may not be aware that you have the condition. Bleeding is the most impontant symptom of gum diseases. If your gums are swollen and bleed when you brush, you may have gingivitis. Periodontitis is a serious gum infection that destroys the soft tissue and bone that support your teeth.
Periodontitis is common but largely preventable.The most common cause of gingivitis and periodontitis is poor oral hygiene. Daily brushing and flossing and regular professional dental cleanings can greatly reduce your chance of developing gingivitis and periodontitis.
There are several ways to treat periodontitis;
- – Nonsurgical treatments such as Scaling, Root planing, Antibiotics
- – Surgical treatments such as Flap surgery (pocket reduction surgery), Soft tissue grafts, Bone grafting and Guided tissue regeneration.
