Gum treatment

Several signs and symptoms may indicate the need for gum treatment. Here are some indicators that you may need to seek gum treatment from a dental professional:

  1. Bleeding Gums: Healthy gums should not bleed during regular activities such as brushing, flossing, or eating. If you notice bleeding gums, especially on a consistent basis, it could be a sign of gingivitis or more advanced gum disease requiring treatment.
  2. Swollen or Tender Gums: Inflammation of the gums, characterized by redness, swelling, or tenderness, is a common sign of gum disease. Swollen or tender gums may also indicate an infection that requires treatment.


Gum Treatment
  1. Receding Gums: Gum recession occurs when the gum tissue pulls back from the teeth, exposing the tooth roots. Receding gums can be a sign of gum disease or aggressive brushing habits and may require treatment to prevent further recession and protect the tooth roots.
  2. Persistent Bad Breath: Bad breath that persists despite regular brushing, flossing, and mouthwash use can be a sign of gum disease or other oral health issues. Persistent bad breath may indicate the presence of bacteria in the mouth that require professional treatment.
Gum Treatment
  1. Loose or Shifting Teeth: Gum disease can cause the supporting structures of the teeth, including the gums and bone, to weaken over time. As a result, teeth may become loose or start to shift out of position. If you notice changes in the alignment or stability of your teeth, it’s important to seek evaluation and treatment from a dental professional.
  2. Pain or Discomfort: Pain or discomfort in the gums, especially when chewing, brushing, or applying pressure to the gums, may indicate an underlying issue such as gum disease, infection, or injury that requires treatment.
  3. Visible Pus or Abscesses: Pus or abscesses (localized pockets of infection) on the gums are clear signs of an infection that requires immediate attention from a dental professional. These infections can be painful and may lead to further complications if left untreated.
  4. Changes in Gum Color or Texture: Healthy gums should appear pink and firm. Changes in gum color (such as redness, bluish-purple discoloration, or white patches) or texture (such as roughness or lesions) may indicate an underlying problem that requires evaluation and treatment.

There are non-surgical and surgical treatment options available to treat your gum disease, depending on the severity of the issue.

Non-Surgical Treatment Options

1.Scaling And Root Planing: This non-surgical procedure includes a deep cleaning done under local anesthesia. The periodontist will remove the plaque and tartar, that is collected above and below the gum line. This is scraped away, also known as scaling. The rough surface of the tooth is made smooth, i.e., planing, which will remove bacteria from the surface of the teeth, providing a clean surface for the gum to reattach. During this process, you need the best periodontist who will provide you with proper direction. You will have to use antiseptic rinses and other forms of antibiotics as prescribed. If you have gums that are swollen, bleeding, or painful, you need to visit a periodontist near you.

  1. Laser Assisted new Attachment Procedure: LANAP is a minimally invasive alternative to traditional gum surgery which requires no cutting or stitching. LANAP is a regenerative technique which helps regrow and rejuvenate the gum  tissue, rather than cutting it away. LANAP treats gum disease without the pain, gum line recession and increased sensitivity traditionally associated with periodontal treatments.
  2. Occlusal Therapy: If you have a poor occlusion, you are more prone to periodontal problems. If your bite is not adjusted properly, it can increase and cause the infection to intensify. This is also known as traumatic occlusion. With occlusion  therapy, you can achieve an ideal adjustment of the bite so the force while moving your teeth is divided effectively. The procedure is done in steps, and the periodontist will evaluate the movements and ensure you achieve an ideal and harmonious bite.

Surgical Treatment Options

          If your Periodontitis is severe, i.e., bone or tissue loss, you will require surgery to restore your gums. There are different types of gum surgery, performed by a periodontist.

1.Osseous Surgery 

  • Once you have deep pockets formed around the teeth, it is almost impossible to remove the food, bacteria, and debris that enter the pockets. Osseous surgery is also known as pocket reduction surgery, where the bacteria living in pockets caused by gum disease are killed to stop the spread of infection, bone loss, or other oral health issues. This procedure is one of the most common for advanced periodontitis. It will reduce the inflamed or infected tissues and repair the damaged bone. 

2.Dental And Crown Lengthening

  • Some people with gingivitis suffer from excessive gum tissue. In this case, the periodontist will reshape your gum and bone tissue to expose more of your teeth and give you an even gum line. This will benefit you in different ways as you will also be able to achieve cosmetic crown lengthening, which will help you improve your overall periodontal health. These procedures will have a relatively short healing period with minimal discomfort, and you will see immediate results.

3.Gingival Graft Treatment 

  • Gingival grafting is used to functionally stabilize receding teeth and is a relatively common procedure that will dramatically improve the health of your teeth and the appearance of your smile. A periodontist will review gingival grafting in the following cases:
  • Recession
  • Lack of protective gum tissue
  • Sensitivity
  • If you have weakened gum tissue or recession, it can cause the deterioration of the bone surrounding the teeth. Therefore, depending on the severity of your condition, the graft will be surgically placed to replace the damaged or lost gum.

4.Bone Grafting

  • This procedure is used when your teeth and jaw are damaged and can not heal. For a bone graft, the periodontist will put in a bone graft to encourage your body to regenerate the lost jaw bone. There are three types of bone graft procedures:

Gum Treatment FAQs :

There are a number of factors that can cause, increase the risk of, or worsen gum disease. A main cause is improper teeth cleaning. When teeth aren’t cleaned properly, plaque (a thin film of normal bacteria) can build up, get trapped under the gums and harden into tartar. If tartar builds up, it can interrupt the healthy connection between the teeth and gums and lead to tooth loosening, decay and loss. Other risk factors include: Smoking or chewing tobacco, Genetics, Crooked teeth that are hard to keep clean and Medications, including steroids, certain types of anti-epilepsy drugs, cancer therapy drugs, some calcium channel blockers and oral contraceptives.

A.Because gum disease is usually painless, you may not know you have it. Look for tell-tale symptoms if you think you might have a problem with the health of your gums. It’s also important to recognize that healthy gums are pale pink and firm. Symptoms of gum disease include:  Red, swollen, or tender gums, Receding gums, which can make teeth look longer than normal, Bleeding gums, New spaces developing between teeth, Bad breath or a bad taste in the mouth, Permanent teeth that are loose or separating, A change in the way teeth fit together when biting, Any change in the fit of partial dentures.

Gingivitis, characterized by red and irritated or bloody gums, is the milder form of gum disease. Without proper treatment it can lead to the more serious periodontitis, which is defined as inflammation and infection that destroys the tissues that support the teeth, including the gums, the periodontal ligaments, and the tooth sockets. Both are considered to be treatable and, to a certain extent, preventable with consistent, proper oral hygiene. 

During an examination, your dental professional will evaluate the health of your gums and measure any pockets that may have formed around your teeth. They also may order x-rays to determine the health of your jaw. From there, they will develop a treatment plan and recommend prevention methods.

A.Treatment methods for gum disease depend upon how far the condition has progressed. While this first-stage of gum disease usually gets better or reverses after a professional cleaning, proper oral hygiene must be continued at home, or the condition can easily and quickly return. 

A.When caught early, gum disease can usually be treated before tooth loss occurs. During a regular dental visit, your dentist can determine the extent of the damage and work with you on a treatment plan. Both types of gum diseases are fairly common among adults in the United States and both generally can be reversed, or their symptoms lessened, with effective care consisting of professional cleaning at your dental office followed by daily brushing and flossing.Even better than catching it early, is to prevent it altogether. Good – and consistent – at-home oral care and regular dental checkups and cleanings can go a long way to help keep your gums healthy and disease-free.
