Gum Treatment

Most common causes of gum diseases are Gingivitis,Periodontitis.

Gum diseases are caused by improper or inadequate brushing. This will lead to the formation of tooth deposits.The initially formed deposits are thin, soft, yellowish-white in color ,this is called dental plaque. Dental plaque will harden over time to form tartar or dental calculus.Calculus cannot be removed by brushing, and requires professional removal.Plaque and calculus are initially formed on the tooth surface outside the gums. Subsequently, these will extend under the gums.The action of the harmful bacteria present in these deposits will lead to infection of the gums.This is called gingivitis.



At this stage the disease is confined only to the gums without affecting the underlying bone. If gingivitis is not treated in time, it will lead to detachment of the gums from the tooth, creating a space between the gums and the tooth known as a pocket, this is calledperiodontitis .And subsequently teeth will start shaking,sensitivity with cold food is preasent.Some time pus discharge,foul smell and painful swelling is preasent.If not treated, the disease can progress to such an extent that the tooth will fall off.
