How is gingival disease prevented?
The most important task in preventing periodontal disease falls into the person himself. In order to maintain the teeth in a healthy condition, it is necessary to remove the bacterial tooth plaque by daily oral care (using toothbrushing and dental floss). It is also important to visit the dentist regularly at the same time. Daily oral care may reduce dental tartar to a minimum, but it may not completely prevent it. The evaluation of areas that can not be reached with a toothbrush, dental floss or other cleaning tool is required by a dentist to remove the existing tooth plaque and / or tooth.
What is the treatment of gingival disease?
In the early period of gingiva disease, treatment includes removal of the appendages (plaque and tartar) over the teeth and ensuring a smooth root surface. This allows removal of bacteria and irritants that cause inflammation in the gingiva. Generally, this treatment is sufficient to adapt the gingiva back to the tooth or to shrink the gingiva to eliminate the pocket. In the majority of cases in the early stages of gingiva disease, daily effective oral care is sufficient for successful treatment following the removal of plaque, plaque removal, and the provision of a smooth root surface. More advanced cases may require surgical treatment. The purpose of this treatment is to remove the tartar abrasions in the deep periodontal pockets surrounding the intended teeth, to eliminate the pocket, to provide a smooth root surface and to form a gingiva form that is easier to clean.
Patients should be regularly examined by the dentist after periodontal treatment, plaque control and new tooth extraction should be removed from the environment. But it should not be forgotten; No procedure can be more beneficial for the maintenance of those obtained by periodontal therapy than for administering the daily oral care of a person effectively.
