Gum Disease Treatment Options to Restore your Oral Health

Ways to Treat Gum Disease in Mississauga Area

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.

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.
