WHAT ARE GINGIVITIS?
Gingivitis Treatment Caringbah
Do you notice your gums bleeding when you brush or floss? Then you have gingivitis.
Gingivitis is the earliest stage of periodontal disease. Treated at this stage, you can recover completely and easily. If you have bleeding gums, you must visit us at The Caringbah Dentists for a consultation. Our caring dentists will recommend the best treatment option for you and get your dental health back to normal.
Most people usually develop some form of gingivitis or the other during their life. The symptoms of gingivitis specially in the early phases can be quite subtle and therefore easy to miss. However, it is important to catch gingivitis in its early stages itself so it can be treated and completely reversed. If you undergo regular dental check-ups, your dentist will be able to identify the beginning stages of gingivitis and recommend a proper treatment. After treatment, just ensure regular dental care to make sure that the problem does not recur.
Make an appointment with The Caringbah Dentists if you find that your gums bleed when you brush your teeth, or if they cause you pain. We will carry out a thorough dental examination to assess the health of your gums. If required, we may take an x-ray to check the condition of your teeth and jaw bone before deciding on the best possible treatment avenues.
Prevent and treat gingivitis and gum diseases
Mild cases of gingivitis can typically be treated by maintaining good oral hygiene. Brush and floss your teeth daily and also undergo regular dental check-up at least once every 6 months.
During your dental check-up, our dental hygienist will give your teeth a thorough cleaning to remove any hardened plaque or tartar. We can also show you how to clean your teeth effectively to prevent future plaque build-up.
If you have a more severe case of gum disease, then you will need further investigation and treatment. In some cases, you may need surgery. These treatments will be performed by our highly trained periodontist.
Remember that untreated gingivitis and gum diseases can develop into periodontitis and can lead to more severe complications such as receding gums, abscesses, and even loss of teeth.
