What is Gum Disease?

Gum disease, also known as Periodontitis is an infection that destroys the gum’s soft tissue, and eventually the bone that supports the teeth. It starts when bacteria collecting at the gumline get in between the teeth and gums. This leads to inflammation and swelling which can cause the gum tissue to recede from the teeth. This gets deeper into the gums causing more recession of the gum tissue. If the periodontal disease isn’t treated, it can result in tooth loss. Our skilled periodontist team at Arrow Dental Centre offers highly effective gum disease treatment to eliminate the infection.

Because gum disease is usually painless, you may not know you have it. If you notice any of the following signs of gum disease, see your dentist immediately:

  • New spacing between teeth (caused by bone loss)
  • Loose teeth
  • Receding gums (loss of gum around a tooth)
  • Tenderness or Discomfort
  • Gums that bleed when you brush your teeth
  • Red, swollen or tender gums
  • Bad breath that doesn’t go away
  • Bleeding gums
  • A buildup of plaque and tartar above and below the gum line

Our experienced periodontist in Nairobi can treat gum disease at any stage. However the scope and choice of treatment depend on the severity of the disease and the patient’s needs. Some of the gum disease treatment options include:

Scaling and Root Planing: Also known as deep cleaning, it involves using ultrasonic scalers and hand instruments to remove tartar and polish the root surface. The procedure removes plaque build-up from below the gum-line and smoothes the surface of the tooth. This prevents plaque build-up and encourages gums to reattach to the root.

Flap surgery: This gum surgery procedure involves lifting gums back and tartar and infection removed with a laser. The gum tissue is placed back so it fits around the tooth. This technique reduces the possibility of bacteria infecting those areas again.

Gum grafting: This gum surgery procedure might be necessary in cases where severe gum recession has occurred due to gum disease. Donor gum tissue is removed from the mouth palate to cover the exposed root. This results in reduced sensitivity and more protection of the tooth against decay.

All of these gum disease treatment options can restore your gums to a healthy condition and help you save your teeth.

Plaque is the leading cause of gum disease. Other factors can lead to periodontal diseases such as hormonal changes, illnesses that affect the condition of the gums (cancer or HIV), medications that affect oral health, smoking, and genetics.
How do you prevent gum disease?
Proper oral hygiene is the key to preventing gum disease. You have to brush twice a day and floss daily. Regular teeth cleaning and regular visits to the dentist are also essential for maintaining your gum health.
