Stop gingivitis before it turns into periodontitis
Visit our Bayonne dentist office where we can help your sore & bleeding gums . Gingivitis causes the gums to become red, swollen and can bleed easily but this is a mild form of gum disease. At this stage you can remedy it with daily brushing, flossing, and regular professional cleaning. The more serious case of periodontitis follows if gingivitis remained untreated as gums disconnects from the teeth and creates spaces called pockets that turn infectious. The infection weakens bacterial toxins and the body’s natural response to fight the virus. As a result, the bone connective tissues holding the teeth in place begin to sag. If treatment is neglected, the bones, gums, and tissue supporting the teeth are destroyed and have to be removed.
Gently fixing your gum problems
We have many state of the art treatments to address your gum disease. Scaling is a good method to removes tartar and bacteria from your tooth surfaces and below the gums. An instruments or an ultrasonic device maybe used. Root planing smoothens the root surfaces and averts further buildup of tartar and bacterial endotoxin. Antibiotics can also be prescribed by a dentist to help control bacterial infection. Topical antibiotics include antibiotic mouth rinses or gels containing antibiotics that are inserted in the space between your teeth and gums or into pockets after deep cleaning.
If you have a more serious case we can discuss flap surgery or pocket reduction surgery for more effective scaling and root planing. Soft tissue grafts are utilized when tissue of the gumlines recede due to periodontal disease. After removing a small amount of tissue from the roof of your mouth (palate) or another donor source, it is attached to the affected site. This reduces further gum recession, covers exposed roots and give your teeth a more pleasing appearance. Bone grafting can also be performed to protect your teeth. The graft is composed of small fragments of your own bone, or the bone may be synthetic or donated. The bone graft holds your tooth in place preventing tooth loss. It also serves as a platform for the regrowth of natural bone.
