Gum Disease Treatment Ormond

Poor oral hygiene causes the formation of plaque and tartar in the gum line and the cavities between the teeth. Plaque is a layer of bacteria that causes inflammation in gums. This infection, when ignored or left untreated, tends to get worse. At Ormond Dental, our dentists will provide you with optimum treatment and care for gum diseases and other oral health issues that you may be suffering from.

Reasons for Gum Disease

Gum disease is basically an infection in the tissues that hold your teeth in place. It is normal for us to have bacteria in our mouths. When the bacteria come in contact with mucus and other fluids present in our mouth, it forms a sticky substance known as plaque. With proper brushing and flossing, plaque can easily be removed from over the teeth. However, poor oral health care, i.e., not brushing and flossing your teeth regularly, causes the plaque to harden over time. This hardened plaque is referred to as tartar. Once you are at this stage, the tartar cannot be removed by brushing and flossing. You require a professional dentist to clean your teeth. 

Tartar is extremely dangerous and causes bleeding gums, pain, problems in chewing and biting, receding gums, and tooth loss.

Signs and Symptoms of Gum Disease

Gum disease often goes unnoticed, and the signs or symptoms will appear only at an advanced stage. Some of these symptoms include:

You must give us a call immediately so we can fix an appointment for you with our fantastic dentist. Ignoring the symptoms may worsen your condition. We will help you treat your gums before it becomes too serious.

Three Different Stages of Gum Disease

Gingivitis

Inflammation of the gums and build-up of plaque at the gum line is seen in this stage. Some patients may experience bleeding when they brush or floss. Gum disease can easily be treated at this stage because the tissues holding your gums are unharm

Periodontitis

At this stage of the tissues that support the bone of your teeth tend to get damaged. Pockets will form beneath the gum line, and plaque and other food particles will be stored here.

Advanced Periodontitis

The tissues and the bones supporting the gums will be decayed. Your teeth will become loose and cause biting and chewing problems. You will also feel extreme pain when chewing or biting. For several patients, speech function may also be affected.

The cost of treating gum disease at our clinic depends on the severity of your condition. You may require single or multiple treatments to fix the gum problem. On average, the cost to treat gum disease starts from  $250 and $1000.
