Treatment of gum disease
Gingivitis, sometimes called gum disease or periodontal disease – describes cases of bacterial buildup in the oral cavity, which, if not treated properly, may eventually lead to loss of Teeth, as a result of damage to the layer that envelops the teeth.
Symptoms of gingivitis
Gingivitis in its initial stages, without showing certain signs or symptoms, such as pain. Even in later, more advanced stages of this inflammation, the symptoms may be few and very mild.
Although the symptoms and signs that accompany gum disease are usually mild and mild, gingivitis is often accompanied by special signs and symptoms.
Symptoms of gingivitis include:
Bleeding gums when brushing teeth
Redness of the gums, swelling (swelling) and increased sensitivity
Emitting an unpleasant odor, or an unpleasant taste, from the mouth permanently
Retraction (withdrawal) of the gums
Deep gaps / pockets appear between the gingiva and the tooth surface
Losing teeth or moving teeth
Changes in the position of the teeth and the form of convergence and adherence to the other when tightening the jaws, or changes in the place of dental prostheses (dental prosthesis) or in the place of dental crowns (Crown Tooth).
Even if none of these signs are observed, inflammation of the gums is possible, to a certain degree. In some people, gingivitis can affect only part of the teeth, such as molars.
A dentist, or dentist, can diagnose and determine the severity of periodontitis.
