Regular Check-Ups Are Important
With experience and skills in the treatment and analysis of periodontal disease which is also called gum disease, Hillview Family Dental has been your complete Edmonton dental care facility since 2010. At the early stages, periodontal disease is not so painful and that is why regular check-ups are the best form of avoidance. A lot of people are not aware of this. This situation affects the teeth, gums, and bones that enclose the teeth. Get serious about gum disease.
How Do I Know If I Have Periodontal Disease?
At the early steps, a lot of people will exhibit no signs of periodontal disease. Some symptoms, however, do occur and they are:
- Chronic bad breath
- Bleeding of gums during brushing or flossing
- Swollen or tender gums
- Receding Gums
- Loose teeth
- Changes in the spaces between teeth
How Is Periodontal Disease Diagnosed?
Proper inspection done by X-rays and the periodontal probe is needed to notice periodontal disease at Hillview Family Dental. The shade, shape and general condition of your gums will be observed by our dentist. Get informed about the diagnosis of the disease of the gum.
The crevice that is between a tooth and the covers of the gum should be 2 to 3 millimeters deep. When the gap becomes 3 millimeters deeper it is called as a pocket and this happens when the plaque and tartar become difficult to handle. From the underneath of the pocket where the gum is fixed to the tooth to the top of the gums, measurement is to be taken by our Hillview Family Dental team. The deeper the pockets, the more the extent of periodontal disease.
Your blood levels are examined by X-rays. Periodontal disease becomes complex when the bone does not come up high around the necks of the teeth and the bone level is not even all around the mouth.
Proven Gum Treatments in Edmonton to Restore Your Oral Health
Dangerous bacteria are condensed below the gum line and the plaque and tartar eliminated using the scaling tools and ultrasonic devices for periodontal services at Hillview Family Dental. For both the avoiding and treatment of gum disease these processes are much operational. Next, after your treatment, oral antibiotics may be prescribed so as to promote your healing process. To confirm your healing procedure a home care service will be made available for you.
Our periodontal programs may be covering over more than one visit or a general anesthetic used to certify that you are at ease. Your gums will tighten around your teeth once they begin to heal. You are then asked to come to learn about our advanced treatment procedure.
What Causes Periodontal Disease?
The main factor of periodontal disease is the deposition of plaque. Plaque can create and increase to become firm if it is not cleaned every day through regular flossing. If cleaning and removing of tartar do not happen regularly then it gathers on the root surfaces. Given the fact that they live on tartar, professional support is needed to clean the bacteria that cause periodontal disease. To brush and floss is not just sufficient.
