Periodontal (Gum) Treatment

Periodontal (Gum) Treatment

As plaque and tartar build-up, it can start to spread to the gums and cause issues. It starts with gingivitis, a reversible ailment that affects the gums, but can get worse until it becomes gum disease. Ready to get your gum disease under control?

Importance of Regular Exams

Ensuring that you visit a dentist in Saskatoon for your regular dental exams can help your dentist see the progression of your gum health. When treating gum diseases, your dentist will inspect your gums and teeth and establish a plan for treatment depending on the severity.

Early Gum Treatment

Think that you may benefit from gum treatment in Saskatoon, SK? For early stage gingivitis and gum disease, it can be as simple as reinforcing your daily oral hygiene routine and having your dentist conduct a deep cleaning around the gums. For more advanced gum disease, root planing and scaling can be used to clean the roots of the tooth and make it harder for bacteria to adhere to it.

If left untreated, gum disease can eventually lead to the gums receding, loosening teeth and the potential for the teeth to fall out. Self-checking your gums is important since treatments are more effective when they are performed in the early stages of gum disease. Always let your dentist know if you experience or notice the following:

  • Change in color of the gums
  • Gums that are bright red around the tooth
  • Gums that bleed when flossing or brushing
  • Bad breath that does not go away
  • Metallic taste in the mouth
  • Gums that are shiny, sore, or puffy
  • Teeth that become sensitive
