Periodontal (Gum) Care

Periodontitis occurs when you suffer from severe gum disease. It begins when bacteria hiding under your gums start eating away at your jaw bone forming pockets which results in inflammation of gums, ligaments, and bone structure.

It is important that periodontitis is treated as soon as possible to prevent any irreversible damage.

Inflammation in Your Gums May Result in Gum Disease.

Bacteria in the gums can ultimately spread throughout the entire body and cause other health problems.

Symptoms of Gum Disease

There are many symptoms of gum disease and periodontitis.  Some of these early and advanced stage warning signs include:

  • Continuous bleeding when brushing and flossing.

  • Foul odour to your breath that isn’t freshened by mouthwash.

  • Red, puffy inflamed gums that lack a healthy stippled appearance.

  • Large black triangles between your teeth which represents bone loss.

  • Deep pockets where food and bacteria get caught beneath your gums.

Stages of Periodontal Disease
There are three stages in which periodontitis develops.
odin lifestyle 20220208 100 highres

Stage 1:

During the early stages of periodontitis you may have:

  • Tooth or gum sensitivity.
  • Mild bleeding from gums when brushing or flossing.

Stage 2:

If stage 1 symptoms are ignored, your periodontitis may progress resulting in:

  • Teeth becoming loose.
  • Throbbing or tightness in your gums.
  • Severe bleeding from gums when brushing.
  • Bad breath.

Stage 3:

This stage is recognised as advanced periodontitis. It is important that you receive treatment as soon as possible to prevent loss of teeth. Symptoms include:

  • Severe pain from teeth and gums.
  • Teeth that are very loose.
  • Blood or pus extruding from your gums.

Preventing Gum Disease

While regular and correct brushing and flossing will help prevent periodontitis, it is important that you continue to book regular dental check up and hygiene appointments.

Here at Odin House Dental Surgery, our periodontal treatment involves a professional and thorough examination of your gums and bone, and cleaning of your root surfaces to remove dental plaque and calculus (hardened plaque).

If you have the signs and symptoms of early or advanced periodontal disease, contact our office today to schedule a consultation and examination with one of our dentists.
