Gum diseases

gum diseases

Most people suffer from some form of gum disease and this is one of the main causes of adult teeth loss. Many of the gum disease are caused by microorganisms in the dental plaque and tartar formed beneath and over the gum. They lead to inflammation of the gums, loss of bone around the tooth and even loose teeth and tooth loss. Additional factors may be smoking, stress, poorly controlled diabetes, hereditary factors, etc.

There are two major forms of gum disease - gingivitis and periodontitis. Gingivitis affects only the gums and is a reversible condition if treated at an early stage. Characterized by

If you notice such symptoms and appropriate treatment is undertaken, complete healing sets in.

If gingivitis is left untreated, it may turn into periodontitis associated with bone damage around the tooth, subsequent loosening and loss. The effects of periodontitis are irreversible. The main purpose of treatment is to limit and stop the disease development. Therefore, the earlier the problem is diagnosed, the easier it is to cure, and we protect our patients from losing their teeth for a longer time.

The percentage of gum disease is high and, together with the fact that they can exist without the presence of pain, we advise our patients to be observant about the early symptoms.

The treatment of gingivitis and periodontitis is a combination of professional procedures in the dental office and good oral hygiene at home. It is essential to perceive yourself and us as a team, which takes care of your mouth. You are responsible for daily hygiene, while Dr. Davidova has the task of reviewing and treating your gums to identify changes that could cause problems.

Regular examinations twice a year or on an individual basis will guarantee the health of your mouth.

At Davidova Dental we develop an individual plan to stop the inflammation, limit the process of bone loss, and teeth. We periodically remind our patients about visits related to oral hygiene and dental examination.
