Periodontal Therapy

Periodontal or Gum disease:
Periodontal disease is the inflammation and infection of the gum. It is caused by plaque, a thick and sticky film of bacteria that builds up on the teeth. Plaque hardens to become calculus also known as Tartar. Periodontal disease is broadly of two types: • Gingivitis: Inflammation of the gum caused by Plaque and Tartar. Early stage of gum disease • Periodontitis: Inflammation of the gum and supporting structures of the tooth. Advanced stage of gum disease
The leading cause of tooth loss in Adults:
Untreated plaque and tartar deposits around your teeth causes gum disease. You can reduce your risk of developing gum disease by: • Brushing atlas twice daily • Flossing everyday • Dental exams and professional cleans twice a year
Gingivitis causes: • Bleeding, swollen gums • Gum recession and sensitive teeth • Gums bleeding from normal brushing or eating • Bad Breath (chronic halitosis) Periodontitis is a more advanced form of gum disease. It causes severe inflammation of gums and surrounding tissues with gums losing their attachment to the tooth. As a result, “pockets” are formed along the gum line which is a perfect haven for bacterial growth. The end result of untreated periodontitis is tooth loss.
Treatment & Risk Factors:
• Deep cleaning or scaling and root planing. • Regular 6 monthly professional cleans and gum analysis can ensure your risk of gum disease comes down. Risk Factors: • Poor oral hygiene • Diabetes • Smoking • Hormonal changes
