At our clinic, in Gilbert, various dental diseases are treated and dealt with on a daily basis. One of them is the Periodontal disease. Periodontal means the area surrounding one's teeth. The periodontal diseases thus, attack the gums and bones that surround the teeth. The plaque, food debris, turn into sticky layers on your teeth, which if not dealt with in a timely fashion they can go further to destroy your gums and bone structure. Thereby they might ruin your dental aesthetics.
There can cause various symptoms to the periodontal diseases. They are bleeding gums, loose teeth, teeth spacing, bad breath, pus surrounding your gums and teeth, loss of gum line around your teeth, swollen and red gums, irritated and tender gums.
Even though you visit your dentist regularly, the periodontal diseases might go unnoticed. Therefore, our team recommends always having a periodontal disease exam during your regular check-ups. A small periodontal probe, a kind of a dental instrument, helps check the spaces between your teeth and gums. If the disease is on a large scale, the spaces can get deeper and deeper. They have a reciprocal relationship.
Gingivitis is the early stage of periodontal disease. If this disease is caught at this stage itself, then having one or maybe two regular cleanings and check-ups might improve the overall dental health. However, if the disease has reached later stages, then special periodontal cleaning would be needed. They include scaling and root planing. During this kind of a cleaning, the tartar, plaque, and other harmful toxins can be removed from your mouth to improve your oral health.
Once you have been diagnosed with the periodontal disease, you might want to consider regular dental cleanings , daily home cleanings, to make sure all the plaque is removed thoroughly from time to time. The Plaque, if not removed, will turn into tartar and will be even more harmful. Regular cleaning appointments at our clinic will make sure that the spaces between your teeth and gums are fully cleaned to ensure that you have a healthy mouth and smile.
