Gingivitis/Gum Disease Treatment in Indiana

An Overview of Periodontal Disease

Commonly referred to as gum disease, periodontal disease is the infection and inflammation of the gum tissue. Gum tissue helps your teeth stay securely in place. Reversing gum disease is only possible during its first stage, gingivitis. At our office, we provide gingivitis treatment that helps patients effectively manage gum disease in Indiana.

Causes of Gum Disease

Poor oral hygiene is the primary cause of gingivitis. Plaque, a sticky and bacteria-filled substance, can irritate your gums if you don’t brush and floss properly. Over time, plaque hardens into tartar, which further irritates the gums. The most effective gingivitis cure involves practicing good oral care at home and receiving regular cleanings from our office.

The Basics of Gingivitis Symptoms

Gingivitis symptoms often are undetectable in the early stages of gum disease. If you notice any of the following gum disease symptoms developing, call our office to receive a gingivitis cure:

  • Puffy, red, and swollen gums
  • Bad taste in the mouth or unpleasant breath
  • Bleeding while flossing or brushing teeth

What Are the Signs of Gingivitis?

At your gum disease screening, one of our experienced dentists will examine your mouth for signs of gingivitis. Some of the signs include:

  • Red and swollen gums
  • Gums receding away from teeth
  • Gaps between teeth or loose teeth
  • Noticeable pus on the teeth or gums
  • Visible inflammation pockets on gums

Stages of Gum Disease

There are different gum disease symptoms at each stage. These stages include:

Gingivitis: The first stage of gum disease is usually hallmarked by bleeding while brushing and flossing, with no pain present. This is the only stage where reversing gum disease is possible. It’s the best time to visit our office for a gingivitis cure.
Periodontitis: During the second stage, the gum tissue and supporting bone are damaged. You may notice pockets begin to form at the gum line, trapping bacteria and food. The gum disease may rapidly progress following this stage.
Advanced Periodontitis: The third stage of gum disease involves the shifting of tissues and bone, and even destroyed teeth. Tooth loss is common at this stage.

Finding a Gingivitis Cure

Gum disease in Indiana is best avoided by prevention. Addressing the signs of gum disease early will make it easier to find a cure. Gingivitis treatment includes professional cleanings and excellent oral hygiene habits at home. If you notice any signs of gingivitis, call our office to book your consultation.

A Guide to Advanced Periodontitis and Gingivitis Treatment

More severe cases of gum disease will involve more intensive treatment. You may be referred to a periodontist, who administers procedures like root planing and scaling. Antibiotics or mouth rinses may be prescribed during an aggressive gum disease treatment.
