Gingivitis/Gum Disease Treatment in Fayetteville, GA

Gingivitis, commonly referred to as gum disease, is a daunting issue that can afflict dental patients from all walks of life if they don’t stay on top of their oral care regimens. The ailment develops slowly over time as plaque and bacteria build up on the surface of teeth and begin to form along the gum line. As this material begins to harden and form tartar, this can lead to gums becoming red and swollen, and is often one of the early stages of a much more dangerous form of periodontal disease.

If left untreated, gingivitis can eventually develop into periodontitis, a far more advanced form of the disease. Instead of mere bleeding and inflamed gums, the ailment can begin to spread underneath the gum line and may start to attack the bone and underlying tissues that support healthy teeth. In time, this can lead to deep infected pockets that could cause a patient to lose his or her teeth and the surrounding bone.

For those who are suffering from gingivitis or a more advanced form of gum disease, there are a wealth of treatment options available in Fayetteville. To start, dentists suggest completely revamping a patient’s oral care regimen to include daily flossing, brushing at least twice a day and doing what’s necessary to foster the long-term health of the mouth. Additionally, treatment options vary depending on the scope of the disease. For instance, for those individuals who report minimal swelling, nonsurgical therapies that control bacterial growth are usually sufficient to restore the supportive tissues and promote the reattachment of gums to teeth.

Conversely, for those who exhibit advanced swelling or bleeding, oral surgery may be required to repair the underlying tissues. A treatment called scaling and root planing is usually the first step, which involves a deep cleaning to remove all traces of tartar, as well as targeting exposed tooth roots where bacteria accumulates. Antibiotics and topical gels can also be used to treat these issues, but ultimately, unless a patient has an advanced form of the disease, gingivitis can be treated quite easily with a vast improvement in a person’s overall oral care regimen, frequent trips to the dentist for consultations and eliminating risk factors like sugary foods and tobacco products. As long as the ailment is caught early, our dentists in Fayetteville have myriad treatment options available to stop gum disease in its tracks.
