Gum treatment is a branch of dentistry that includes the diagnosis and treatment of gum diseases. Gum diseases can occur in various forms such as gum inflammation (gingivitis) and gum recession (periodontitis).

Symptoms of gum diseases:

  • bleeding gums
  • gingivitis

Reasons for gum treatment:

  • Gingivitis: Gingivitis occurs due to the buildup of dental plaque and tartar. Dental plaque and tartar can lead to gingivitis and gum recession.
  • Gum recession: Gum recession occurs when gingivitis is left untreated. Gum recession can lead to loosening and loss of teeth.

Methods used in gum treatment:

  • Scaling: Scaling is the process of removing dental plaque and tartar from the teeth and under the gums.
  • Curettage: Curettage is the process of cleaning the bacteria and inflamed tissues accumulated in the gum pockets.
  • Gum surgery: Gum surgery is a method used in the treatment of advanced gum diseases.

The importance of gum treatment:

Gum diseases are one of the most important causes of tooth loss. With gum treatment, gum diseases are controlled and tooth loss is prevented. Gum treatment is also important for general health. It has been associated with systemic diseases such as gum disease, heart disease, diabetes and rheumatoid arthritis.

If you are considering gum treatment, it is important to consult your dentist. Your dentist will determine the level of your gum disease and determine the most appropriate treatment method for you.
