Gum Disease Treatment Options to Restore your Oral Health

Have you noticed blood in the sink when brushing? You might not pay too much attention to it, but this may be a sign of gum disease. Gum disease is the leading cause of tooth loss, so you must pay optimal attention whenever you spot symptoms. The good news is that when gum disease strikes, you can seek treatment from Dentistry On 10 in Mississauga to restore your oral health.

Ways to Treat Gum Disease in Mississauga Area

What is gum disease?

Gum disease starts with plaque buildup — a sticky film of bacteria. You can eliminate plaque by brushing and flossing and scheduling dental cleanings with a dental practice. Unfortunately, if you neglect your oral health, it’s only a matter of time before plaque hardens into tartar, which inflames your gums.

Gum disease starts as a mild form of gingivitis marked by swollen, red, and bleeding gums. With proper dental care, gingivitis is reversible. However, if you don’t seek any treatment, gum disease morphs into full-blown periodontitis, which causes bad breath, receding gums, and tooth loss. Advanced gum disease is irreversible but can be treated by Dr. Rina Kotecha and her team.

Gum disease treatment options

When periodontal disease comes knocking on your doors, we offer surgical and non-surgical treatments to restore your dental health. These treatments include:

  • Deep teeth cleaning: This treatment involves scaling that removes plaque and tartar beneath and above your gum line. Besides, it incorporates root planing, which smoothes your tooth roots to aid gums in reattaching to the roots. Scaling and root planing are adequate for the early stage of gum disease, and you may need more than one visit, depending on the severity of your infection.
  • Antibiotic therapy: Your dentist may apply local antibiotics to your gums. Also, oral antibiotics may be administered to keep your infection under control.
  • At-home periodontal trays: These are specially designed trays to deliver treatment deep into your gums.
  • Periodontal surgery: Where gum disease has progressed to periodontitis, pocket reduction surgery is necessary to fold back your gum tissue to facilitate deep cleaning. Besides, during pocket reduction surgery, your dentist removes infectious bacteria and recontours your tooth roots.

Procedure – Gum Disease Testimonial

Hi, my name is Naren. I have been coming to dentistry on 10 for at least five years, probably a lot longer than that. I first heard about Doctor Rena, through a friend of mine who was my roommate back in college and the, the, thing that attracted me to her right off the bat is she went to Harvard of course, you know Harvard is one of the top schools in the world, so you know studying at Harvard and Learning dentistry Harvard, I’ve never met anybody who went to Harvard, so that was the number one thing. But when I came here, it’s not the Harvard that I ended up staying here for. It’s because she’s a very caring person and she has a team that really is caring. So, for example, you know I, I, have some health conditions and you know taking care of my gums is really, really, important and I’m like not that good at taking care of myself. So you know she just, just, stuck with me, just kept at me and, you know, just taught me things and talk to me about things and you know. And when I did, you know, kind of mess up and you know, get gum disease again. You know she you know, stuck with me. So, like for me personally, I know people come for dentistry for lots of reasons, some people you know, care about their smile and things like that. For me personally, it’s the health because I have a history of health issues in my family and I know the importance of, you know, taking care of your gums and you overall mouth and health so I would strongly recommend Doctor Rena if you really care about your health. If you really want somebody who’s not just trying to, you know, give you things you don’t need, but really, who’s trying to focus on what’s good for you, helping you achieve your goals. She’s very caring, very, very patient, very, very, gentle and, and, she’s there for you. So, it’s almost like having a partner in health who’s working with you to make your life better. So, we all need it, and especially as we get older when we are in our 40s and 50s, we need to take care of our health and without doctor Rena I don’t think I would have the comes I have and I don’t think I would be working on my health. Thank you very much Doctor Rena and I would, absolutely without a hesitation, recommend anybody and my entire family comes here as well as my two kids and My wife. So, thank you for being an amazing dentist and thank you for caring about people who live in the neighbourhood and their health.
