Gum Disease Therapy

Reported by dianapetrus18 (at gmail) | September 21st, 2022 @ 02:16 AM

There are many ways to treat gum disease, and the best time to begin is during the early stages of the disease. The best treatments can stop the disease before it can lead to tooth loss and extensive tissue damage. Early warning signs of gum disease include swollen or red gums that bleed easily. In addition, smokers tend to have worse gum disease than non-smokers. For more information, visit Embrace Dental Care.

Scaling and root planing
Scaling and root planing are two procedures used to treat gum disease and increase the aesthetic appeal of a smile. A dental hygienist and dentist perform them in one dental visit. Sometimes both systems are required for the treatment to be effective. It is estimated that nearly half of Americans are at risk for periodontal disease, and the likelihood increases as you age. About three out of four adults over 65 are at risk for periodontitis. This condition is associated with many factors, including hormonal changes affecting oral health.

This treatment will remove plaque and tartar located beneath the gum line. It also smooths out the roots of teeth, allowing them to reattach to the teeth. While scaling is a stand-alone procedure, root planing is essential to complete gum disease therapy.

Soft tissue grafts
Soft tissue grafts are an excellent way to restore the lost soft tissue in the gums. They also allow patients to recreate a healthy smile. Unlike dental implants, soft tissue grafts don't need to be moved from one mouth area to another. This treatment is beneficial if the roots of the teeth have become exposed.

Soft tissue grafting is usually performed to treat and prevent gum recession. This problem can be caused by several factors, including aging, gum disease, or overbrushing. The goal of this procedure is to stop the gums from receding further, thus preventing the exposed root from causing tooth loss. In addition to improving oral health, soft tissue grafts can improve cosmetic appearance and avoid gum disease.

Antibiotics are a common form of treatment for gum disease. They work by killing bacteria that cause infection in the gums. These medications may be used in conjunction with other treatment options. Topical antibiotics are applied to the affected area of the gums and can help prevent and treat gum disease. Some of these medicines are available as strips or gels. One of the antibiotics used for gum disease is ciprofloxacin. This antibiotic targets a specific type of bacteria that contributes to gum disease.

Antibiotics can be synthetic or natural and effective against many types of bacteria. They can be taken orally or in special trays worn over the mouth. They are also used in combination with dental treatments to restore the health of the gums. However, antibiotics for gum disease therapy are only effective when combined with other medicines.

Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure
LANAP is a minimally invasive form of laser gum disease therapy that doesn't damage healthy tissue. It's FDA-approved and widely regarded as the gold standard for gum disease therapy. Gum disease, also known as periodontal disease, affects millions of Americans annually. Despite this, few people seek treatment for this condition due to its risk of complications.

LANAP involves using a laser to target and destroy the bacterial deposits and tartar beneath the gumline. It also helps speed up the healing process by preventing damage to healthy tissue. It can also create protective seals around teeth and encourage new tissue attachment to the root surfaces. This process also eliminates the need for stitches.
