Diagnosis of Gum Disease and Methods of Prevention?

Diagnosis of Gum Disease and Methods of Prevention?When dentists suspect abnormalities in the general appearance of the gums, they measure the size of the pocket between the teeth and the gums using a tool called the periodontal probe. Periodontal examinations must be conducted on adults as part of any oral examination. An x-ray may be required to evaluate the state of the bone tissue surrounding the teeth.  

You can play a major role in preventing periodontal diseases. In order to keep using your original teeth throughout your lifetime, you must take time everyday to regularly remove bacteria plaque through brushing, flossing and the use of chemical agents.

In addition, visiting your dentist regularly for routine examinations is also of utmost importance in the prevention of gum disease. Although daily dental care can minimize the formation of tartar, it cannot totally prevent it from forming. Dentists can remove hardened tartar in regions that you cannot reach or remove using a toothbrush or by flossing. Removal of tartar is referred to as scaling. Your dentist may prepare a personal dental hygiene program to suit your personal needs. With such a program, you may brush and floss your teeth without damaging your teeth and gums.  

You can visit your dentist regularly and get advice regarding oral care products. There are a wide variety of toothbrushes, dental floss, mouthwashes and interdental picks on the market. Your dentist will help you choose which one or more of these products best suits your needs.  

The most common treatment of periodontal diseases diagnosed at an early stage is generally tartar removal and the smoothening of the surface of the roots. The process involves the removal of the bacteria sedimentation and tartar build-up from the pockets that have formed around the teeth and the smoothening of the surfaces of the effected roots. As a result of this procedure, bacteria and toxins that can cause infections are removed from the oral cavity. These procedures conducted at the early stages of gum disease usually yield satisfactory results.  

Surgical interventions may be necessary in cases where gum diseases have developed further. The purpose of surgical interventions is to remove tartar build-up and effected tissues from the deep pockets that have formed around the teeth and to smoothen the surfaces of the roots and shape the gums to allow ease of cleaning. 

Periodontal patients must be examined periodically after such treatments. The only way of preserving the positive outcome of periodontal treatments is the regular removal of bacteria sedimentation through the use of toothbrushes, dental floss and chemical agents. The most important thing is to get your teeth examined at regular intervals advised by your dentist.
