There Are Many Choices Of Periodontal Disease Treatment

Periodontal disease is a mild gum infection that is caused by excess plaque that feeds and thrives on the sugars and starches left over in teeth and gums after eating. It is easily preventable with proper oral hygiene and is easily treatable with a professional cleaning by a dentist if there is tartar buildup. However, if left untreated, gingivitis can escalate into a very serious and harmful infection known as periodontitis, which requires very rigorous treatment with dental instruments.

With a mild gum infection, the gums become reddened and swollen in protecting itself from the plaque. The plaque eventually hardens to form tartar, which makes it easier for bacteria to grow, while making it difficult to control it with brushing and flossing. If this trend continues, the plaque will spread to under the gum line and form pockets that fill with bacteria. This will damage the nearby gums and cause them to recede from the tooth, which can directly lead to a loss of teeth.
There are several ways to treat periodontitis depending upon how aggressive it is. Non surgical treatment options include root planing and ultrasonic scaler option. Using these methods, a dentist will clean off all traces of tartar, and remove any disease root surfaces of the affected teeth.
Surgery can be done if the gums are heavily infected. Flap surgery requires an oral surgeon to cut "flaps" of the gums and peel them back to expose the diseased root of the tooth and to effectively clean them. If a lot of bone or gum tissue is damaged, it must be removed and a graft must be done to replace the tissue removed. It is also possible that a tooth is so heavily damaged that the only course of action is a tooth extraction.
Not all Periodontal Disease Treatments will Cost You!
A treatment is not really a sure ball in curing periodontal diseases like gingivitis but frequent treatment could reduce the symptoms such as bleeding gums, receding gums, sore gums, sensitive gums, bad breath, rotten teeth and swollen gum line. People with gingivitis will tend to feel a little bit more sensitive to hot and cold food. There are also natural treatments that you can intake so as to prevent or for treatment.
