Chew Over the Facts on Gum Disease Treatment

dca-blog-gum-disease_1200x630

Dental problems can strike people at any age and any time. One of the most common dental conditions is gum disease, also known as gingivitis. If you’re experiencing this dental distress, discover how to get real relief.

Signs that Suggest a Problem

In order to spot gum disease, you need to pay attention to your daily dental health. If you look for signs of dental discomfort, you can seek out treatment for gingivitis before it leads to larger problems. If you experience any of these symptoms, visit your family dentist immediately to see if it’s time for gum disease treatment:

  • Red, sore, swollen gums
  • Bleeding when brushing and flossing
  • Receded gums
  • Open sores on gums
  • Pain when chewing
  • Chronic bad breath
  • Loose teeth

What to Expect in Gum Disease Treatment

Be assured that your family dentist will determine the best treatment for gingivitis for you. In most cases, it will involve a deep cleaning of the gums. Your family dentist may also take X-rays to look for bone loss, as well as examine your teeth for loose dental work that could contribute to problems. Severe cases can sometimes demand dental surgery.

How to Prevent Dental Distress

Your dental health is in your hands, so you need to practice proper dental hygiene to ensure that your smile stays healthy. To keep your smile at its best, follow these simple steps:

  • Brush gently, yet completely, at least twice a day.
  • Floss your teeth at least once every day.
  • Rinse with an anti-bacterial mouthwash on a daily basis.
  • Eat a healthy diet.
  • Get regular check-ups and cleanings from your family dentist.
