Gum Treatment

The number one reason why people lose their teeth is undiagnosed periodontal disease. In fact, we know that 90% of all adults have various levels of periodontal (gum) disease.

The disease begins without warning, and in its early stages causes gums to become sore, bleed easily, and contribute to bad breath. As it progresses, teeth loosen and separate; your bite changes and teeth are eventually lost.

For this reason, we incorporate a regimen of careful gum evaluation into each of your visits. Treatments available include:

  • Gum recontouring
  • Periodontal plastic surgery
  • Periodontal flap surgery

We firmly believe our patients benefit from a more conservative approach rather than an aggressive surgical approach. Your comfort always remains our first concern.

Our goal is to diagnose the progression of gum disease and offer an opportunity for you to minimize bone loss and preserve your smile for a lifetime through periodontal maintenance which helps in preventing periodontal diseases.

Gum Disease Treatments

Gum disease treatment in Milton Keynes can improve the symptoms of gum disease. Gum disease, which is also referred to as a periodontal disease, is a serious gum infection that can cause a variety of symptoms.

An early sign that you may have periodontal disease is chronic bad breath. Other common symptoms of gum disease include swollen gums, bright red gums, bleeding gums, and gum tenderness.

Additionally, patients with periodontal disease may experience pain while chewing, have loose teeth, tooth sensitivity, and even pus developing between the teeth and gums. Genetics may also play a role in gum disease in determining who is most susceptible to suffering from it.

Periodontal disease is a gum infection that can severely impact the health of your gums and the bones that support your teeth and gums. Severe gum disease can even cause tooth loss. A build-up of the disease occurs over time either from improper oral hygiene or no dental hygiene regimen at all as well as other factors such as heredity.

In fact, there are 3 periodontal disease stages. If gum disease is detected and treated early, the damage caused by the disease can be decreased. The periodontal disease stages increase in severity as the disease progresses.

Gum disease treatments are meant to correct damage caused by gum disease and restore a healthy smile. Depending on the periodontal disease stage that you’re experiencing, a periodontist in Milton Keynes will determine your gum disease treatment.

While brushing and flossing help remove plaque, these normal at-home oral health habits are insufficient to remove built-up tartar. You may need a periodontal disease treatment like scaling or root planing.

Gum disease treatments are sometimes paired with a course of antibiotics. For severe cases, dental bone grafting is used to stop further tooth loss. You may also need a soft tissue graft to treat gum recession. Pocket reduction surgery and tissue regeneration are also effective techniques to combat gum disease.

Some of the most common types of gum infection treatment include scaling and root planing, medications, gum surgery, and gum grafts.
