Periodontal Treatment

Gums are considered the most important part of oral and dental health. Healthy gums not only surround the roots of the teeth, but also help support each tooth and protect its structure. However, sometimes it is seen that various problems arise around the gums. One of the most common gum problems is gingivitis. This problem occurs with the accumulation of plaque on the teeth, causing the gum structure to become inflamed and disrupt oral health.

Gum treatments are being improved day by day with innovations in the dental field to protect and improve dental health. At this point, gum surgery, together with its specialist physicians, fully handles gum treatments and can completely eliminate the complaints of the patients. 

What is Gum Treatment?

Nowadays, gum diseases can frequently be seen together with infections caused by gum bacteria due to unhealthy diet and stressful lifestyle. These infections cause inflammation in the gum tissues and irritation in certain areas. In recent years, millions of people have stated that they have had gum disease at least once in their lives.

At this point, it is possible to intervene in gum problems early, direct patients to the correct surgical methods and completely eliminate the problems. In this way, gum problems can be prevented from causing serious complications.

Gum treatments can be applied in various ways while covering different procedures. Dentists first perform examinations to reduce infections in the gums. The patient’s gum areas that are irritated and infected are determined and the most appropriate treatment method is immediately planned. At this point, different treatment procedures can be used to renew the tissues damaged by gum disease and remove the infection from the area.

What are the symptoms of gum disease?

Gum diseases can be examined in many different stages, although they vary from patient to patient. For this reason, it is seen that different symptoms occur at each stage of gum problems. Complications that indicate gum disease, especially in the earliest stages, include swelling, redness and tooth sensitivity. But each symptom varies between patients. Here are the symptoms frequently encountered in gum diseases:

  • Bad Breath

One of the most common symptoms of gum problems in the early stages is bad breath. It is known that patients develop bad breath due to infections in the gums. At this point, it is known that the problem of bad breath disappears when the infection is eliminated from the body.

  1. Tooth Sensitivity

As with many oral and dental problems, tooth sensitivity is among the first symptoms seen in gum diseases. Doctors remind patients that they can alleviate the problems by using special toothpastes for tooth sensitivity during gum treatment.

  1. Gum Recession

Gum recession, seen in the final stages of gum disease, is one of the symptoms that can cause bad consequences if not treated quickly. With gum recession, the connective tissue between the gum and the tooth disappears and the tooth is left without a point to hold on to. It is known that in cases of progressive gum recession, teeth fall out and patients often experience tooth loss.

  1. Redness and Swelling in Gums

Redness and swelling in the gums can often tell patients that something is wrong. Patients who consult a dentist during the redness and swelling phase can get more accurate results from treatment with early diagnosis and can also adapt the most appropriate treatment method for themselves.

How are Gum Treatments Done?

Gum treatment is planned by the dentist, taking into account factors such as the progression of the disease, previous treatment processes and the person’s general health condition. Gum treatments are generally known as operations where a definitive solution is achieved when treated early. However, it is very important for patients to be able to see the symptoms before their gum problems progress and to consult a clinic immediately. Here are all the details about the methods frequently used for gum treatment;

  • Surgical Teeth Cleaning

Plaque and tartar that form close to the gum line often cause gum disease. At this point, experts can easily eliminate gum problems by cleaning plaque and tartar from both teeth and gums with minor procedures. Moreover, with surgical teeth cleaning, the risk of infection is reduced and the teeth become much whiter. Moreover, it is known that gum diseases are much less common in people who regularly clean their gums.

  • Tooth Scaling and Root Planning

Plaque and tartar accumulations under the gums often lead to gum diseases. Therefore, dentists perform appropriate teeth cleaning and root planing in the relevant areas. In the procedures performed in professional clinics, all plaque and tartar formations below the gum line are eliminated. Then, the rough parts on the teeth are completely smoothed, making it difficult for bacteria to survive and multiply.

  • Pocket Reduction Surgery

In some cases, although tartar and plaque are cleaned from the teeth and gum areas, tartar accumulation can be seen in swellings called pockets in the gums. In this case, dentists remove the gums after local anesthesia and completely clean the tartar formations accumulated in the pockets. In this way, re-inflammation of the gums can be prevented.

  • Bone Graft Application

In progressive gum diseases, it can be seen that the dental bones in the palate are completely dissolved or become very weak. At this point, bone graft application aims to help patients regain their old dental bones. During the procedure, patients’ own dental bones are used or scientifically produced bone grafts are used. Grafts placed in damaged areas play a role in the renewal of bone formation.

  • Soft Tissue Graft Application

Thinned gums or vanished flesh can be seen in areas where gum recession is observed. This situation not only invites various discomforts but also presents an unaesthetic appearance. At this point, experts apply soft tissue grafts where they deem necessary. In this way, the damaged soft tissues renew themselves in a short time and enable the person to regain his health.
