Gum disease treatments available from your dentist

Symptons of Unhealthy Gums

Symptons of Unhealthy Gums

The treatments offered from your dentist will depend on the level of gum disease present in your mouth. The dentist is likely to start by analyzing the level of plaque, cavities and infection in the teeth and mouth before deciding on treatment options.

Your dentist will probably recommend starting with one of the most common gum disease treatments available, deep scaling and planing. You’ll usually be given a local anesthetic and the dentist will scrape away plaque and tarter from the teeth and gum area. Any rough areas of the teeth will also be planed to make them smoother. This will make it more difficult for bacteria to attach themselves to your teeth and gums.

If your gum disease is at its very early stages your dentist may advise you to have a professional clean, even if you don’t suffer from gum disease its recommended to have a professional clean twice a year to ensure your teeth and gums are kept clean – preventing gum disease from appearing is more effective than any gum disease treatment available.

Surgical gum disease treatments

If these methods don’t help cure gum disease in your mouth your dentist may suggest other gum disease treatments or even surgical procedures. The most common procedure is pocket reduction surgery (or flap surgery). In this procedure the dentist will lift the gums from the surface of the teeth to remove plaque and tarter. The gums are then placed back with a snug fit between the teeth to ensure bacteria doesn’t build up again.

Depending on your situation your dentist may suggest other surgical options including laser treatments, soft tissue grafts or bone grafts – these are usually only done in the most serious cases of gum disease.

Natural gum disease treatments

Many people could treat their gum disease without resorting to expensive visits to the dentist or even surgery. There are many natural products and home remedies that can cure gum disease and provide toothache relief.

A book by David Sharpe (available as an ebook or printed book) called ‘What You Should Know About Gum Disease explains more about the real causes of gum disease and how to cure gum disease naturally.

We also recommend a natural gum disease treatment called OraMd. OraMD is a natural oil. Because its an oil it can penetrate under your gum line, down in the pockets between your gums and teeth, and won’t wash away. Its guaranteed to help cure gum disease, click on the link below to find out more.

    Yearly dental check up is necessary to prevent all periodontal diseases. The information above is very much useful for those who have gum diseases especially the information of the natural way to treat gum diseases.

    I am thinking about going for the Natural gum diesease treatment, rather than the surgical one, as this as you said is inexpensive.

    I recently purchased some of the tartar removing powder. I am a natural skeptic and was not sure if this stuff worked. I have had tartar problems on my lower front teeth for a few months & have tried removing it myself with no success. It was real hard and thick. Well here it is just 12 days later and I did not really see much of a change. Then, all of a sudden this morning I was brushing and i noticed some tartar had come off while brushing so I grabbed my dentist pik and i could not believe what I was seeing I removed all the tartar from those teeth. it was disgusting and beautiful at the same time. I go to the dentist tomorrow. what a time for such a major result. I am no longer a skeptic this is the most amazing product ever.

    Great piece on gum disease! I always tell my patients how serious it is, and how not going to the dentist regularly can lead up to it. I’ll have to check out that ebook, thanks

    Wow, I didn’t know that gum care was as important as tooth care.

    Great information, I saw similarities between the 1234 illustration and my own gums, hope brushing my teeth more often will fix it.

    I’ve been reading how gum disease can cause or is correlated to heart disease because of infection from the mouth.
