Gum treatment in dentistry

Gum treatment in dentistry

Gum disease is most often a consequence of the most common laziness. Calling dentists for thorough oral hygiene (morning and evening cleaning, rinsing after meals) are not simple horror stories. If you do not brush your teeth before bed, micro particles of food and a whole army of bacteria remain in your mouth, which have something to profit from. And while you sleep, bacteria feed, multiply, leave a lot of toxic waste products in the body. And in those places where pathogenic microorganisms rage, an inflammatory process develops.

If you do not keep your teeth clean on a daily basis, do not carry out periodic professional cleaning (once every six months), then sooner or later you will need gum treatment. Dental clinic in Dnipro (Dnipropetrovsk) Amel Dental Clinic invites patients for examination and professional cleaning of teeth from plaque every 3-6 months. The attending physician, having extensive practical experience and modern diagnostic equipment, will detect gum inflammation at the initial stage, and will prescribe an effective treatment. If you regularly check the condition of your teeth and gums, you can keep your teeth healthy and avoid their premature loss, and minimize the risk of developing many periodontal diseases.

When is gum disease treatment needed?

The most common diseases affecting the gums are:

  • 1
    gingivitis;
  • 2
    periodontitis.

In dentistry, there is a whole section devoted to the study, prevention and treatment of diseases associated with gum disease, and a specialized doctor – periodontist – deals with these diseases.

You can understand that you have problems with the gums by the following signs:

  • discomfort and bleeding of the gums when chewing, brushing teeth;
  • swelling of the gum tissue;
  • periodic bouts of aching pain at the neck of the tooth;
  • bad breath;
  • peeling of the gums from the tooth (periodontal pocket, exposure of the tooth root);
  • tooth mobility;
  • increased sensitivity;
  • purulent discharge.

Any of the listed symptoms is a reason to go to dentistry without delay. The earlier the problem is detected, the easier and more effective the treatment of gum disease, the lower the likelihood of complications.

How gums are treated

Methods of combating inflammation are prescribed by a doctor individually. The choice depends on the nature, stage of the disease and individual characteristics of the organism.

Gingivitis

The mildest stage of inflammation is manifested by symptoms such as itching, bleeding. The gum swells, becomes reddish. Detection of an inflammatory process at this stage is an opportunity to save teeth and effectively cope with the infection.

As part of the treatment of gingivitis, doctors at Amel Dental Clinic carry out:

  • brushing teeth from plaque;
  • cleaning of food debris and plaque in periodontal pockets;
  • caries treatment, replacement of old fillings; treatment of affected tissues with a drug that actively fights infection;
  • prescribing anti-inflammatory and preventive measures by the attending physician for further independent treatment of the patient.

Periodontitis

The second stage is the result of the absence or ineffective treatment of gingivitis. With periodontitis, the inflammatory process looks like this: the gum becomes swollen, bleeds, the infection can turn into a purulent form, the teeth become mobile.

Periodontitis treatment takes place in several stages:

  • Cleaning the enamel from tartar, plaque on the coronal and root surfaces of the enamel.
  • Antiseptic processing of tissues.
  • Drug therapy aimed at relieving inflammation (external agents for treating and protecting against infection, pain relievers and anti-inflammatory drugs).
  • Cleansing periodontal pockets.
  • Elimination of factors that cause systematic trauma to the gingival tissues (grinding the base of the crown, processing fillings, extraction of wisdom teeth).
  • Splinting – strengthening the dentition.
  • Treatment and, if necessary, dental prosthetics.

The last, most severe form of periodontitis leads to atrophy of the gum tissue and loss of teeth. It is not so common, only in 5-8% of people, and most often has a genetic basis. This form of periodontitis is mistakenly called “periodontal disease”. It is characterized by the following symptoms: drooping and pale gums, pain when chewing, exposure of the tooth root, increased sensitivity to temperature.

Long-term, complex treatment:

  • 1
    removal of the focus of infection – dental plaque;
  • 2
    caries treatment;
  • 3
    physiotherapy – carrying out physiotherapeutic measures in order to restore blood circulation in the gingival tissues, to stimulate the regeneration of the gums;
  • 4
    therapeutic treatment – the course includes applications, rinsing, antibiotics and supportive drugs;
  • 5
    restoration of tooth enamel by remineralization, fluoridation.

Surgical treatment of periodontitis is prescribed at an advanced stage.
