Your Guide to Gum Disease Treatment

dca-blog-gum-disease_1200x630

By not taking care of your teeth, you’re putting yourself at risk for developing dental problems. One of the most common conditions is gum disease, which is also called gingivitis. If you’re diagnosed with this problem, discover how to deal with the damage.

Seven Signs of a Possible Problem

Gum disease can be silent and sneaky, so many people are unaware they have it until their dentist discovers it. That’s why you need to pay attention to any signs so you can get treatment for gingivitis before it becomes more severe. If you experience any of these symptoms, visit your family dentist immediately to see if it’s time for treatment:

  1. Swollen, sensitive gums
  2. Bleeding during brushing and flossing
  3. Receded gums
  4. Ongoing bad breath
  5. Open sores on gums
  6. Discomfort while chewing
  7. Loose teeth

A Closer Look at Gum Disease Treatment

When you’re seeking a treatment for gingivitis, trust your family dentist to guide you toward relief. In most cases, your family dentist will perform a process called scaling that involves deeply cleaning the affected areas to remove the dangerous plaque and bacteria. You may need to have a dental examination to check for loose fillings. X-rays may also be taken to detect any loss of bone. Severe cases may demand dental surgery.

Prevention is the Best Protection

By practicing prevention, you can protect your dental health and hopefully avoid ever needing gum disease treatment. Dental experts recommend these easy dental care tips:

  • Brush at least twice a day, preferably after meals.
  • Floss at least once every day.
  • Use an anti-bacterial mouth rinse after brushing.
  • Eat a balanced, healthy diet.
  • Get regular check-ups and cleanings from your family dentist.
