How Gingivitis Affects Your Gums

We are always here to help patients accurately identify and treat gum disease in Avon

Suffering from gum disease, or what is more commonly referred to as gingivitis, involves a bacterial infection in the gum tissue that is usually linked to extensive poor oral hygiene practices. In most cases this disease is completely reversible by seeking professional dental treatment, but severe cases of gum disease become periodontal disease, and this can result in permanent damage that could include tooth loss, tissue damage, and even deterioration of jaw bone structure. The problem with gingivitis is that it is extremely common for individuals to experience this issue without ever sensing any pain until the disease has become much more advanced, risking severe and irreparable damage to the tissues in the mouth. The condition is highly common among individuals of all ages, and occurs when plaque builds up beneath the gum line and produces harmful bacteria that continues to spread and damage the tissue, remaining hidden from routine oral hygiene practices like brushing and flossing. The most frequent and blatant signs of the early to mid-stages of gingivitis can include red and swollen gums sometimes accompanied by bleeding, receding gum line, persistently bad breath and taste within the mouth, sores on gum tissue and within surrounding areas of the mouth, and even teeth that feel much looser than normal. Once periodontal disease comes into effect and advanced stages begin to occur, the treatment options become much more difficult and limited. If you believe you are experiencing the signs associated with gum disease in Avon, give us a call right away to schedule your appointment today.

Identifying The Best Treatment

Whether you are in the early stages or experiencing advanced symptoms, we offer ways to treat gingivitis in Avon

Although the term gum disease can sound somewhat defeating to most people, it is important to note that the majority of cases can be treated by your dentist without the need for taking extreme measures like oral surgery. The earlier stages of gingivitis can usually be reversed by using one or more various treatment methods, such as prescription strength mouthwash or a periodontal deep cleaning. Deep cleanings involve removing plaque and tartar buildup that may be occurring beneath the surface of your gum line, and can sometimes require more than one visit with your hygienist in order to correct symptoms of gum disease. This process helps eliminate the stubborn breeding grounds for bacteria within the mouth that cause swelling and bleeding gums, tooth decay, and can eventually lead to more serious issues such as tooth extractions. Regularly scheduled general exams and cleanings at least twice a year are instrumental in preventing these types of dental issues and defending the mouth against gingivitis. However, general cleanings are entirely different than the previously mentioned deep cleanings in that they do not involve removing buildup that forms deep beneath the gum lines. In more rare cases of advanced periodontal disease, the options become extremely limited and can result in the need for oral surgery in order to correct the damages done over extensive periods of time. This makes identifying early stages of gum disease essential, and scheduling regular dental exams with your dentist is highly recommended for this reason. If you believe you may be experiencing symptoms that are associated with any of these stages of gum disease, please give us a call at (970) 393-5128 or click the 'appointments' button below. Time is truly of the essence when it comes to gingivitis. We would love to help you today!

"The Best Offense Is A Good Defense"

"The Best Offense Is A Good Defense"

Know that the best ways to fight gum disease in Avon start with good oral hygiene

"When it comes to preventing gum disease, I can recommend two guaranteed methods of prevention that will have numerous advantages to your overall oral health. The first lies in scheduling regular dental exams and cleanings with your hygienist, as this will help patients in eliminating plaque and tartar that house harmful and damaging bacteria in hard to reach locations. I always make sure to remind our patients to schedule their cleanings no less than twice a year, and am always more than happy to create the appointment for them before they even leave the office. Secondly, good oral hygiene from home is by far the most important and beneficial method to preventing gum disease. Make sure to regularly brush and floss after every meal, and be sure to use mouthwash in order to remove any additional debris that may have been left behind afterwards. Building a routine with these habits may seem difficult for some patients at first, but after a short period of time it becomes a fully rewarding second nature with some major benefits. Combining these two habits builds a defense against dental problems like gingivitis that cannot be beaten. It’s as easy as brush, floss, rinse."
