3 Options To Treat Your Gum Disease

Posted by Lone Star Dental Care Jun 12, 2017

Gum disease is a nasty oral health issue. It can cause your gums to recede, infect your teeth’s root structure, and even eat away at your jaw bone. Symptoms of gum disease include inflamed gum tissue that bleeds easily when you brush or floss, receding gum line, and increased tooth sensitivity. It’s urgent to treat gum disease as soon as possible. Your dentist can provide you a number of treatments that can repair and restore your smile. Here are 3 options to treat your gum disease.

Perio Protect

Gingivitis, which is the precursor for gum disease, occurs when excessive oral bacteria infects your vulnerable gum and periodontal tissues. Your dentist treats this by providing medicine that works to remove the infection and bacteria from underneath your gums. This can help prevent your gum disease from flaring up or becoming worse.

Pinhole Surgical Technique

To treat receding gum tissue, a dentist would usually perform gum grafting, which involves intensive surgery using scalpels. Conventional gum surgery can work but can also involve a large amount of pain and discomfort. On the other hand, Pinhole Surgery Technique (PST) is minimally invasive. PST involves your dentist creating a tiny hole through which your dentist can use special tools to gently reposition your loose, receding gum tissues.

Gum Grafting

Although gum tissue can be highly resilient, gum disease can eat away at your gum tissue and cause your gums to recede, leaving your teeth’s roots and jaw bone susceptible to bacteria and infection. Your dentist can reverse your gum recession by trimming away your infected gum tissue and grafting healthy tissue in its place.
