Gum Disease Prevention – Routine Care

posted on September 29th, 2016

Preventive dentistry is a way of keeping your mouth and teeth healthy and prevention of potential oral and dental problems. Preventing avoidable dental treatment could be a simple matter of following some healthy habits. Preventive dentistry builds on this concept. The two major reasons people visit the dental clinic in Bangalore for are tooth decay and gum disease. Aside from a few conditions, most of these oral problems are completely avoidable.

If the dentist and patient work together, they stand a better chance to come up with effective measures that allow patients to avoid the need for dental treatment, especially fillings and extractions. Gum disease symptoms such as swelling, soreness, or gum infection could be the result of gingivitis or periodontal disease.

Gingivitis is a disease characterized by the inflammation of the gums. The gums become swollen, red, and painful. Swollen gums often start to bleed when brushing teeth. If gingivitis is left untreated, it turns into periodontal disease. There are many types of periodontal diseases that affect both the teeth and gum tissues. As the condition worsens, the bone that anchors the teeth to the jaw is lost, making the teeth loose. If not treated in time, teeth loss is inevitable.

Gum diseases are the major cause of tooth loss in adults. However, it has been observed that adults get rid of gum diseases with proper and timely care. As the saying goes ‘A stitch in time saves nine’ – care and precaution at the initial stages will win you an opportunity to save your teeth. Gum diseases often arise from plaque and habits like smoking. Smoking can also worsen gum diseases and mouth ulcers.

If you are having any of the early symptoms of gum disease or you think that you have an advanced form of gum disease, the first thing you should do is to visit your dentist. They will perform a proper check-up, diagnosing the existing disease and also identifying any diseases you might be susceptible to.
