What is Gum Disease?

Over the age of 35, gum disease is the main reason for tooth loss. Many teeth with gum disease can be cured and kept for many years with frequent supportive treatment and adequate plaque control, according to research.

A gum infection caused by bacteria that has migrated to the bone and tooth-supporting tissues is known as gum disease.

Causes of gum disease

- poor breath

- bleeding gums

- The gums have shrunk.

- sensitivity to both hot and cold 

- Loss and loosening of teeth

10% of people are more vulnerable to the effects of plaque and are more likely to experience early tooth loss. These individuals require ongoing professional supportive care and must be very adept at controlling plaque.

Plaque, a slimy film of bacteria, tends to accumulate where the gums and teeth converge.

Plaque bacteria lead to gum disease.

Within a few hours of brushing your teeth, plaque will start to build.

How is gum disease treated?

First, we examine your mouth to determine where plaque and gum disease are present. If any teeth cannot be saved, we will let you know. The deposits of mild plaque and tougher tartar on your teeth are then removed. We also provide you with the necessary tools and instructions so that you can remove the plaque every day.

Next, we make sure that all gum disease has been treated and that you are effectively cleaning plaque every day.

Last but not least, we frequently recheck that the gum disease has not returned and that you are effectively cleaning the plaque. We treat it quickly if it is returning anyplace in your mouth to prevent it from totally re-establishing.

Most patients require this rechecking to be done by their dentist or periodontist every three months. This phase of treatment is referred to as monitoring and supportive therapy.

Monitoring therapy

We believe that a lack of monitoring therapy is the primary factor in gum treatment failure. Unfortunately, having a history of gum disease is a lifelong issue, and research indicates that three key elements are necessary to prevent it: You maintain excellent daily plaque control.

We or your dentist will periodically check in to make sure you are eliminating all plaque, and they will examine your gums to make sure the gum disease has not returned in any way.

Regular supportive therapy is used to rehabilitate any regions where gum disease is starting to recur and to diagnose it early before it causes significant harm.

Do Implants treat gum disease?

They can, yes. Peri-implantitis is the medical term for this condition. Contact a skilled implant dentist right once if the gums around your implant bleed when you brush them, you detect a discharge coming from the gum around an implant, or you notice an off flavour emanating from the area. If you detect any of the following happening near your implants, call an implant dentist right once. Brushing causes bleeding an odour coming from the gums Unpleasant flavour

If I have gum disease, can I get implants?

Yes, however your care must take place in the following order:

- Get your gum disease treated.

- Show that you can keep plaque under control well enough to prevent gum disease from recurring.

- Put the implants in.

- Regular observation and life-sustaining assistance
