GUM care


Gum Care

Teeth are important, and so are the gums. Bleeding gums are the first sign of gingivitis (gum disease) that can ultimately lead to the total loss of bone and gum tissues (periodontitis).

Preventing damage to the teeth and supporting tissues is essential to prevent the early loss of teeth due to gum diseases. Bleeding gums, bad breath, bad taste, and discoloration of gums, cheek, and tongue are warning signs and should be promptly treated.

Scaling, root planing, flap surgeries, gingivectomies, and bone and soft tissue grafting are the common periodontal procedures. Conventional and laser-assisted treatment protocols are followed by specialist doctors at Kamala Dental. A range of periodontal cosmetic procedures like gummy smile correction, gingival depigmentation, and black triangle corrections are also performed frequently as smile enhancement procedures

Gingivitis (bleeding gums) is the first sign of developing periodontitis. Swollen or infected gums, gums that appear reddish pink in colour and tender gums that bleed easily, are cautioning symptoms for the individual, to prevent such a progressing gum infection.

Spitting out blood following brushing, bad breath, pain on chewing food, developing spaces between teeth, and extrusion of teeth are signs of a progressing gum disease. The development of periodontitis begins with the onset of plaque (a slimy layer) that forms on your teeth, but brushing teeth twice daily with flossing will remove this layer of plaque and prevent it from hardening under your gum line to form calculus (tartar). Thus, gingivitis and periodontitis can be prevented in its onset.

The Risk Factors Of Such Infectious Gum Diseases Are Listed As Follows:
  1. Poor oral health due to improper brushing habits and techniques
  2. Smoking / chewing tobacco
  3. Hormonal changes
  4. Changes related to pregnancy and menopause
  5. Obesity
  6. Vitamin C deficiency
  7. Genetics
  8. Certain medications that cause dryness of mouth(xerostomia) and other undesirable changes to the gums
  9. Disease such as diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis and Crohn’s disease
  10. Conditions such as Leukaemia, HIV and Cancer

After diagnosing the aetiology and the progress of the disease, Kamala Dental Specialty Hospital offers both non-surgical and surgical treatments for periodontal diseases.

Nonsurgical treatment options are scaling, root planing and a prescribed drug regime that includes medications like antibiotics and/or a combination of these procedures.

Surgical treatment options are flap surgeries, soft tissue grafts and bone grafts, guided tissue regeneration and laser assisted periodontal surgeries. At Kamala Dental Specialty Hospital, minimally invasive laser assisted periodontal procedures are done frequently, which gives exemplary results.
