Inadequate dental hygiene and tobacco usage are contributing factors. You may not be able to control some risk factors, such as genetics, age, and underlying illnesses like diabetes or heart disease.
Periodontitis may result in tooth loss, significant infections, and a variety of other health consequences. The infection can occasionally spread. Additionally, there are hints that heart conditions or the symptoms of diabetes and maybe cancer may be aggravated or caused by oral infections. It’s crucial to have a periodontist treat your gum disease right away.
Gums that are painful, red, and swollen are the earliest symptoms of gum disease. Additionally, bleeding gums during tooth brushing is a common indicator of gingivitis, the early stage of gum disease.
We take pleasure in providing the least amount of discomfort while also providing the maximum potential benefit to our patients. For the purposes of minimising trauma, we operate with the least amount of force possible. Gum surgery itself causes little discomfort. This surgery is normally carried out by a periodontist, a dentist who specialises in gum disease and gum health. As your periodontist completes the operation, you may feel some pressure or movement instead.
