Emerging Methods For Effective Periodontal Treatments

Posted on 7/18/2022 by Todd Jorgenson
Emerging Methods For Effective Periodontal TreatmentsPeriodontal disease is a severe infection that affects the bone supporting the teeth and gums. If left untreated, it can lead to tooth loss. In recent years, there have been several advances in the treatment of periodontal disease. This blog post will discuss some of the latest treatments for this condition.

What Are Periodontal Diseases and Its Causes?


Periodontal (gum) disease is usually caused by plaque or a sticky bacterial layer that constantly forms on your teeth. If not removed, plaque may convert into calculus (tartar). Both plaque and calculus irritate and inflame your gums. Periodontitis can occur when the inflammation is not treated and spreads below the gum line. Bacteria can destroy the bone and connective tissue that support your teeth. Some of the common causes of periodontal disease include poor oral hygiene, tobacco use, certain medications, teeth grinding, genetic disposition, and diabetes.

Symptoms of Periodontal Disease


Symptoms of periodontal disease include gingivitis, which is characterized by swollen, red, and bleeding gums. When not treated, periodontitis will happen next, which causes the gums to pull away from the teeth and form pockets. These pockets collect bacteria and debris, eventually leading to bone loss. Bad breath, swelled-up gum, loose teeth, and a change in the fit of dentures or other dental equipment are all signs of periodontal disease. If you are experiencing such type of symptoms, it is essential to see a dentist as soon as possible.

What Are the Methods for Treating Periodontal Disease?


There are several different methods available for treating periodontal disease. The most common treatment is scaling and root planing. This involves removing the plaque and tartar from your teeth and roots. Your dental expert may also recommend using an antibacterial mouthwash or taking antibiotics to help control the infection. In severe cases, surgery may be necessary to remove the infected tissue and bone. Also, there is an emergency treatment called laser gum treatment, which can save your teeth and gums from periodontal disease.

If you think you have signs of periodontal disease, it is essential to see our dentist as soon as possible. They will be able to diagnose the condition and recommend the best course of treatment.
