How to treat gum problems
In the early stages, your dentist at Spadent will tell you to switch to a better oral routine. This will include proper brushing, flossing and use of mouthwash twice a day. In case the regular oral routine is not adequate, the Spadent dentist will perform deep cleaning to remove hard-to-reach germs from the dental pockets.
If the above problem still persists, an antibiotic dosage may be prescribed by the dentist. Imaging tests such as x-rays will be deemed necessary for further treatment.
For advanced cases of gum disease, one or more of the following types of gum surgery could be required:
Soft tissue grafts:-
Worn away gums are replaced to cover damaged roots
Replacement of lost bones with grafts from animals or humans. This is sometimes also done using man-made materials
This helps in growing back lost bone
Lengthening of crown:-
The Spadent dentist will first eliminate excess gum tissue from your teeth, making your teeth appear longer. This is done for treating gum infection and for restoration.
Here gums are lifted from the teeth, upon which tartar is removed. Upon completion of this process, gums are stitched or sutured back in place.
