Solution to Gum Disease!!

Gum disease or Periodontitis disease refer to the growth of bacteria which will lead to the destruction of tissue that are around the teeth. The term periodontal basically means around the teeth. Same as the meaning periodontal refers to the infection of tissue around the teeth.

Plaque is the main cause of gum diseases, it usually forms around the teeth even without our knowledge, with it accumulating so much, tartar forms, this tartar is so sticky that common cleansing of the teeth cannot remove it, only professional cleaning of the teeth can get rid of it.

There are two stages of the gum disease that is gingivitis and periodontitis. 
Gingivitis and Periodontitis.
Gingivitis is the starting stage of gum disease. If left untreated, gingivitis will usually progress to periodontitis. Apical periodontitis is the inflammation of all the supporting structures of the teeth in the area surrounding the apex of the tooth. When left untreated gingivitis might progress to periodontitis.

Treatments of the periodontal diseases are variable and it depends on the progressive stage of the disease.

Non - Surgical Methods

1. Scaling

Scaling is a type of cleaning with ultrasonic instruments. It removes plaque and tartar from teeth and below the gum line.

2. Root Planning

Root planning is the dentist smoothens the root surfaces so that supportive tissues can re-attach to the tooth surface.

3. Antibiotics and anti-inflammatory

4. Bite correction

5. Splitting

Using adjacent strong teeth to support the weak or mobile teeth

Surgical Methods

1. Gingivectomy

The treatment procedure removes an overgrowth of gum tissue taking the gum  back to its original position.

2. Flap Surgery
The gums are separated from the tooth, creating an access to the infected pocket and root surface. Deep deposit of plaque and tartar are then removed with this type of laser periodontal surgery.

Bone grafting is also possible at the time of surgery, bone graft helpful to increase the vertical height of the bone which helpful in the foundation for the tooth.
