If you have been told that you have Gum Disease, fear not for you’re not alone. Many adults are currently suffering at the hands of this malicious disease in one form or the other. Gum Diseases range from simple inflammation of gums to a rather serious condition that may result in major damage to the tissue and bone supporting the teeth.
Brushing and Flossing lend a hand in disposing of this plaque. Plaque that is not removed within a certain specific time can solidify and form “tartar” that only a professional cleaning by a dental hygienist can remove tartar.
Having such gum diseases can lead to the discoloration of your teeth such that many feel embarrassed to have to show their teeth in public, making them insecure and conscious about their appearance.
Symptoms of Gum Disease may include:
Gum Disease Treatment for periodontal disease uses the methods scaling and root planing, which is a non-surgical method of cleaning the surfaces of the teeth and their root which may be exposed due to gum depression. This removes tartar, plaque, and bacteria from the gum area surrounding the root, and promotes the healthy restoration of the gum tissue.
Scaling refers to the scraping off of tartar from above and underneath the gum line. Root planing gets rid of rugged spots on the tooth root and assists in removing the bacteria that contributes to Gum Disease.
