When dental plaque forms on your teeth it accumulates. The tartar formed infiltrates your gums, putting you at risk for periodontal disease. Gingivitis and gum disease are a result of swollen gums where periodontal pouches have been formed. Your teeth become loose and are sensible to hot and cold elements.
There are different types of gingivitis. They are as follows:
– Simple gingivitis
– Hypertrophic gingivitis
– Necrotizing ulcerative gingivitis
If you suspect your gums are becoming smaller or you have sensitive teeth, we advise you to contact a professional immediately. It’s important to treat these symptoms right away as waiting can lead to other health problems. There are many consequences that can arise from not treating gingivitis, such as : tooth loss, infection,bleeding and bad breath.
We encourage you to book an appointment with our experts for gum treatment in Boisbriand.
Our clinic is composed of dental professionals who are experts in gum treatment. At your first consultation, we will examine the state of your gums and bones in order to propose a treatment adapted to eliminating the tartar and stabilizing the gum disease. Afterwards, we will treat your gums with periodontal scaling to remove the tartar. This process removes the bacteria around your teeth and gums and reduces gum inflammation.
Please note that it is impossible to cure gingivitis. We can only slow the progression and stabilize it. Once treated, it’s important to practice daily dental hygiene and have your teeth professionally cleaned every 3 months in order to avoid tartar.
