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
