  • What are the signs of periodontal disease or gum dissease?

    One of the earliest signs of the disease is an irritated gum line, but common signs of gum disease include:

    • Red, swollen, or tender gums
    • Bleeding gums during or after tooth brushing
    • Receding gums, making your teeth appear longer
    • Persistent bad breath or bad taste in the mouth
    • Loose or shifting teeth
    • Formation of deep pockets between teeth and gums

    Early detection and treatment are crucial to prevent the progression of gum disease and protect your oral health.

  • What causes gum disease?

    The primary cause of gum disease is plaque, a sticky film of bacteria that forms on teeth. If not adequately removed through brushing and flossing, plaque can harden into tartar, further irritating the gum tissue. Other factors contributing to gum disease include:

    • Smoking or tobacco use
    • Genetic predisposition
    • Underlying health conditions, such as diabetes
    • Certain medications that reduce saliva flow
    • Poor nutritional habits

    Understanding these risk factors can help in preventing gum disease or managing its progression.

  • How is periodontal disease or gum disease treated?

    Treatment for gum disease depends on its severity. Options include:

    • Professional cleanings to remove plaque and tartar.
    • Scaling and root planing which is a deep-cleaning procedure to remove bacteria and smooth the tooth roots.
    • Medications to control infection and promote healing.

    Surgery, such as flap surgery or bone and tissue grafts, for advanced cases to restore supportive tissues.

    At Westhill Dental, we tailor our treatment plans to effectively address your specific stage of gum disease, focusing on minimally invasive techniques whenever possible to restore gum health and function.
