Gum Disease Treatment Airdrie

Recognizing & treating gum disease

Gum disease is more common than you might think. Whenever the gums are sore or infected, it’s likely the culprit is gum disease. The signs you may have gum disease are often quite obvious.

When you are brushing your teeth your gums might start bleeding and you may also have started noticing that you have bad breath.


What is the cause of gum disease?

Poor oral health can lead to gum disease. Basically, gum disease occurs once sticky plaque has started to build up on your teeth. Plaque contains bacteria and forms after you eat and drink.

Some bacteria are quite harmless but there are other types that can be quite damaging. If plaque is left on your teeth it will accumulate and lead to redness, soreness and swelling of the gums.

At an early stage, gum disease is called gingivitis and is relatively easy to treat. If it is left untreated it can turn into what is called periodontitis, which is a bit more serious. If you have not accessed treatment by this time the bone imbedded in your jaw could start to decay and small gaps in between your teeth and gums may start to appear.

The worst-case scenario can be the loosening of your teeth and tooth loss. In some cases, gum disease has been known to contribute to cardiovascular problems. Here at You First Dental in Airdrie, we offer gum disease treatment options.

What can be done to help prevent or treat gum disease?

Regular oral hygiene such as brushing and flossing your teeth twice a day and using toothpaste that contains fluoride are good preventative measures.

A dental cleaning and check up twice a year is highly recommended as well.

The gum disease treatment options we offer in Airdrie are as follows:

  • Scaling and polishing: This helps to remove plaque and tartar. Special instruments are used to not only remove plaque and tartar but also eliminate stains and marks through polishing.
  • Root planing: This is a deep cleaning method, performed beneath the gums, that helps to eliminate bacteria from the roots of the teeth.

Gum disease should be treated sooner rather than later

If severe gum disease is present, you may require more treatment, including periodontal surgery. In some cases, it may be necessary to extract the affected tooth.

Generally, the sooner you treat gum disease, the faster your oral health will return to normal.

You can make an appointment at You First Dental here in Airdrie, and we can assess the status of your teeth and make suitable recommendations for gum disease treatment as required.
