Periodontal Treatment


Periodontal Treatment Melbourne North West


Dentist Checking Teeth in Melbourne Dental Couture
Periodontal treatment is a dental solution to treat and heal gum disease. By thoroughly cleaning the gums around teeth and the pockets that form along the gum line, we can eliminate infection and prevent damage to the teeth and bone. Our dentists at Dental House Studio at Melbourne North West are skilled at removing infection and the plaque and calculus that cause it, leaving you with a fresh mouth and healthy gums.

The Perils of Periodontitis


Periodontitis is a later stage of gum disease that can lead to pain and bleeding of the gums and then tooth loss if left untreated. This disease begins when plaque or calculus (tartar) build-up on teeth below the gum line, causing the gums to pull away from the teeth. Bacteria and food debris can easily get caught in the pockets and cause further infection.

Plaque is a sticky film of bacteria that can form on teeth, while calculus is the crusty deposit that forms when plaque remains on teeth and can only be removed with professional dental cleanings.

Calculus can damage the enamel of teeth and allow infection to form and spread throughout the gums and eventually affect your entire mouth. It may even spread through the bloodstream to other parts of your body, including organs like the heart. Luckily, periodontal treatment can stop the process and restore oral health.

Gingivitis Leads to Periodontitis


When gums are healthy, they are light pink in appearance and may turn pinker when brushing. But if you brush and your gums bleed, you may have early stages of gum disease called gingivitis. In this stage, gums may be mildly painful to brush and may become inflamed. If gums begin to recede and bleeding gets worse, the condition may be worsening into periodontitis, which can quickly spread through the mouth and into other areas of your body.

Periodontitis Symptoms


If gingivitis is left untreated, symptoms worsen and periodontitis may develop. The following are some of the symptoms that should be treated by a dentist right away:
N
Gums that bleed easily
N
Foul breath even after brushing
N
Receding gums
N
Excessive build-up on teeth that cannot be removed with brushing
N
Foul taste in the mouth even after brushing
N
Tooth pain while eating
N
Body infection from an unknown source
N
Loose and wobbly teeth

Stages of Gum Disease


Gingivitis and Periodontitis are two stages of gum disease, but there are more than that. The stage of periodontitis determines the treatment that will be required to stop the infection and begin full healing.

Stages of Gum Disease


Periodontal Treatment in Melbourne Dental Couture

Gingivitis and Periodontitis are two stages of gum disease, but there are more than that. The stage of periodontitis determines the treatment that will be required to stop the infection and begin full healing.

Dental Couture Number 1

Gingivitis

This is the earliest stage of gum disease and is characterised by swollen gums that bleed, especially when brushing. You may also experience bad breath and receding gums during this stage.
Dental Couture Number 2

Early Stage Periodontitis

This is when periodontitis takes hold and the gums bleed much easier. Inflammation becomes worse and the gums will begin to pull away from the teeth, allowing pockets to collect food and debris.
Dental Couture Number 3

Moderate Stage Periodontitis

This stage forms as inflammation spreads. During this stage the gums are more painful and teeth may begin to become loose due to loss of the supporting bone. Gums recede even more and bad breath worsens.
Dental Couture Number 4

Advanced Stage Periodontitis

During this stage gums may spread from the teeth and teeth may also begin shifting. Abscesses can form on the gums and gum line and tooth loss may occur.
Gum disease may take hold for a number of reasons. The most common reason is due to inadequate brushing or lack of regular oral hygiene, but gum disease may also be hereditary. Gingivitis may last for months before periodontitis strikes, and the later stage of periodontitis can take hold quickly. The best thing to do to prevent gum disease is to have regular dental exams and professional cleanings to keep plaque and tartar at bay and allow the dentist to detect early stages of gum disease.
