Why Choose True Dental's Gum Treatment?

Understanding Gum Disease

Gum disease, a common dental issue, affects many individuals and can lead to serious oral health problems if left untreated. It ranges from simple gum inflammation, known as gingivitis, to severe disease that results in damage to the soft tissue and bone supporting the teeth. Understanding the causes, such as plaque buildup, and recognizing early symptoms like swollen, red gums, and bleeding while brushing are crucial for early intervention and effective treatment.

What Causes Gingivitis and What Are the Symptoms?

Gingivitis, the earliest stage of gum disease, is typically caused by the buildup of plaque on your teeth, leading to inflammation of the surrounding gum tissues. Common symptoms include red, swollen gums that may bleed easily, especially during brushing or flossing. Bad breath and a bad taste in the mouth are often associated with gingivitis. Understanding these signs and seeking prompt treatment is essential to prevent the progression to more serious gum diseases like periodontitis, which can lead to tooth loss.

Root Planing

Root planing is a deep cleaning procedure that removes plaque and tartar from the roots of your teeth, smoothing out the root surfaces to promote healing and prevent further bacterial colonization. This treatment is often recommended for patients with periodontitis. It's usually performed under local anesthesia and may require more than one visit to complete. Patients can expect some tenderness and sensitivity following the procedure, but these symptoms are typically short-lived.

Periodontal Surgery

Periodontal surgery may be necessary for advanced gum disease when there is significant gum recession or deep pocket formations around the teeth. This surgery involves cleaning the affected areas and may include reshaping or regenerating bone and gum tissue to facilitate healing and reattachment. The goal is to reduce pocket depth, regenerate tissue, and stabilize the condition of the mouth.

Root Canal Treatment

Root canal treatment is a procedure used to treat infection at the center of a tooth (the root canal system). It's not directly a gum treatment but is often related to overall oral health, including the health of the gums. This treatment involves removing the infected tissue, cleaning and disinfecting the inner aspects of the tooth, and then filling and sealing it to prevent further infection. Root canal treatment can relieve pain, save a tooth that might otherwise need to be removed, and protect the surrounding teeth and gums from spreading infection.
