Have a better mouth with effective gum treatment

Our diverse lifestyles have led to many of us not eating on time, and also snacking late at night. This tends to make thick germs clinging to the teeth and gums. Not brushing after a snack at night would allow the germs to proliferate and damage gums over time. Of course, habits such as smoking also lead to tartar deposits on the gum. If you notice the gums as being puffy, or if there is blood in the sink after you brush, this could be the early stage of gum damage.

Some of the common symptoms of gum diseases are:

Formation of tartar and plaque on teeth

Foul breath

Swelling or redness in the gums

Pain during chewing

Tooth loss

Shaky or loose teeth

Bleeding while brushing or biting an apple

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

Bone grafts:- Replacement of lost bones with grafts from animals or humans. This is sometimes also done using man-made materials

Tissue regeneration:- 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.

Flap surgery:- 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.

Checking your eligibility for gum treatment

Do not take the decision that you will need gum surgery on your own- let the dentist decide this. You must never proceed without recommendation from Spadent. Several people who experience root arranging and scaling methods with their dentists would need careful intercession to proceed towards gum treatment.

Guidelines for post treatment

There could be minor swelling and pain around gums post treatment. Any given cloth with a little amount of ice will help curb pain and swelling. You should not perform physical activities 2-3 days after surgery. Do not try to spit hard over the above period, for the sake of blood cluster adjustment.

In most cases, people are able to fully recover from the gum surgery in 1-2 weeks. However, ensure that you have a follow-up dental check at Spadent after a week to make sure the healing process is proper. After two weeks of surgery, you will be advised to brush and floss.
