What are the Treatments for Gum Disease?

Posted on 12/19/2022 by Fern Creek Dentistry
What are the Treatments for Gum Disease?The phase of the illness, the quality of the gingival tissue and tooth, and your maintenance of healthy all influence whether periodontitis is treated non-surgically or surgically.

Gum disorders are treated differently based on the stage of illness, how you performed to previous therapies, and your general health. Following a complete periodontal assessment, treatment suggestions range from non-surgical treatments to surgical procedures. Bacterial growth can be controlled non-surgically.

What are the non-surgical gum disease treatments?

Whitening your teeth professionally: During a routine checkup, dentist or dental hygienist eliminates surface stains that have accumulated and hardened on the tooth structure. Mural is the 'coat' that coats teeth, causing fractures and periodontitis. Tartar is a hard, yellowish deep deposit that forms on teeth. When calculus and tartar have accumulated to this amount of accumulation, they can only be removed by a professional cleaner. Sediment and tartar are removed upwards through the gingival margin of all your teeth during cleaning.

What are surgical periodontitis treatment options?

Pouch reduction flap surgery: The gums are pulled back and plaque is removed during this treatment. In certain situations, the injured bone's uneven surfaces are softened. This reduces the number of places where disease-causing germs may hide. The jaws are then positioned so that they fit tightly around the tooth. By reducing the gap between the jaw and the teeth, you are also limiting the regions where dangerous germs may thrive. The risk of significant health issues caused by periodontitis is also minimized.

Most treatments may be performed in the office by the dentist. The time required to complete the operations, your level of pain, and the time required to recuperate differ from person - to - person. Other considerations include the procedure's kind and scope, as well as your overall health. Some therapies may be preceded by the administration of local anesthetic to numb the therapy region. If you need more information on general gum disease treatment seek medical help, or call us immediately.
