Healthy Gum Make Healthy Teeths

Gum disease, is a bacterial infection that affects gums and surrounding tissue. It is the major cause of tooth loss in 70% of adult. It is affecting nearly 80% of people at some point in their life.

Gum disease are caused by the formation of plague on the teeth. The plague is a colorless bacterial film that constantly forms on the teeth. Through brushing of teeth tend to remove the plague.

However, if not removed in time it turns into a harder black substance called tartar. This tartar settles on the gum line and causes inflammation of the gum and eventually root of the tooth. As these supporting structures weaken the teeth loosens causing sever pain before falling off or might at times require extraction.

Non-Surgical treatment:

Early stage gum disease can be treated without the need of a surgical intervention like.

This is considered one of the best methods of removing tartar which is not possible by regular brushing of teeth at home. This process is followed periodically to prevent reoccurrence of gum disease.

Surgical procedures

  • Pocket depth reduction procedure: In this procedure tartar in the gum cavity is removed by lifting the gums around the teeth. In severe cases the tartar leads to the destruction of the bone creating a defect. This defect is contoured to avoid any future damage.
  • Bone Grafts: This is similar to the pocket depth reduction technique. The key difference being the damaged bone is replaced by a graft made from the patient’s bone or from a donated bone.`
