Gum Infections - Symptoms & Treatment
As you know, oral health is the bridge to your overall health and gum is one of the most important and sensitive parts of the oral cavity. Sometimes gums may suffer any minor infection and if this minor infection is not properly treated, it may cause other major oral diseases. Such infections are not only painful but also can result in the loss of teeth.
The Smile Clinic offers you a facility for the proper treatment and cure of gum infections under the supervision of highly qualified and experienced Dentists.
Major Gum Infections
If not properly cared for and treated, a minor gum infection may lead to two severe infections that are:
1 - Gingivitis
Gingivitis is the gum inflammation that is usually caused by the trapping of food in the sulcus that causes bacterial or fungal infections. If one does not take it seriously, it may damage the overall teeth structure and permanent tooth fall.
2 - Periodontitis
If not properly treated or left untreated, the Gingivitis may result in a more severe gum infection called Periodontitis that impacts the attachment of teeth and gum resulting in the breakdown of nearby tissues. Once the tissues get damaged, this may lead to loose teeth and tooth loss.
Symptoms Of Gum Infections
Though gum infections are not so common, anyhow, keep in mind the following symptoms so as you may prevent the sudden damage to your gums:
- Minor or severe pain
- Pus flow
- Bad breath
- Loose teeth
- Change in the tooth gap
All these factors may show an alarm to your gum health and in case of any above symptoms, must visit our dental clinic.
Gum Infection Treatment
We have an absolute cure for your infected gums. Visit our clinic for a perfect treatment of such problems. Here is the most commonly used method to cure these infections.
In this sort of treatment, our professional dentists extract the infected gum tissues to prevent the further invasion of the infection.
For minor gum infections, our dentists use antibiotic pills or other medicines, while on the other hand, in case of severe infection they may inject the antibiotic directly to the infected site via injection.
If Gingivitis or Periodontitis are left uncured, it may result in severe damage to your gums. In such a condition, one needs flap surgery that includes bones or tissue grafts.
Root Scaling & Planning
This is the most advanced method of gum treatment in which our dentists deeply clean the infected tissues and debris that is collected between the gums and teeth.
If one takes great care in her/his diet, there are least chances of gum infections. Also, you can prevent such infections by taking these preventive measures:
- Daily brushing
- Floss daily
- Use anti-gingivitis mouth wash
- Visit your dentist continually
