THE TREATMENT OF GINGIVAL DISEASE

WHAT IS GINGIVAL DISEASE ?

Gingivas consist of soft tissue. It surrounds the bottom of your teeth (tooth root). Lookıng after your gums is as important as looking after your teeth. Gingival diseases occur as a result of inflammation of the gums. It originates from a bacterial plaque, an adhesive film that builds up on teeth and gums. Bacterial plaque produces acids and toxins that cause the gums to go red, swell or bleed. Over time, gingival problems can cause receding gums. This results in pockets between the teeth and gums. These pockets are filled with germs and cause the bone around the teeth to weaken.

Gingival diseases are common. Many people have an early stage gingival disease that can be treated with good oral care. However, if you ignore this problem, the bone around the tooth will weaken, causing the tooth to shake and ultimately flatten. After periodontal treatment, patients should be regularly examined by the dentist; plaque control and new dental calculus should be removed. But we should not forget that; no procedure can be more beneficial than the effective practice of daily oral care to maintain those achieved by periodontal treatment.

DO GINGIVAL DISEASES CAUSE RECEDING GUMS ?

Gingival diseases are inflammatory diseases that occur in the gums. The inflammation that occurs in the gums causes melting of the surrounding bone tissue and causes receding gums..

WHAT'S NEW IN GINGIVAL DISEASE TREATMENT ?

There have been many different innovations in the treatment of these diseases recently. Among these innovations, grafting operations now use artificial grafts instead of patient grafts in many cases. This prevents potential disorders after treatment. Matrix protein based gels used in sliding operations increase the success rate of the treatments and reduce the post-treatment disorders.

WHAT TO DO AFTER GINGIVAL OPERATION?

The most important point after gingival operation is to keep that area away from mechanical harm.. You should pay attention to what you eat and drink and avoid hard foods. Keeping the operation area clean is one of the most important factors affecting the outcome of the treatment.
