Gum & Bone Disease – Advanced Gum Treatment
Gum disease, or periodontal disease (perio from “around” and don’t from “tooth”), is a common condition affecting millions of India. Most only have mild gum disease, but about 30% suffer from severe gum disease that causes loss of the bone support for a tooth so that we need Advanced Gum Treatment.
Types of Gum Disease - Advanced Gum Treatment
In its mildest form, gum disease is known as gingivitis. In this stage there is some inflammation of the gums but no lasting damage to the bone and connective tissue.
Symptoms of gingivitis include non-painful swelling and redness of the gums and there can be bleeding when brushing or flossing.
Causes of Gum Disease
Smoking. A recent study shows that the bacteria most damaging to the gums reside in the mouth of a smoker.
Plaque. Plaque is the soft bacteria that coats teeth. If removed at least once every 24 hours you will go a long way to controlling this factor of gum disease.
Calculus. This is hardened plaque found below the gum line. It accumulates more plaque and causes loss of bone support around the tooth.
This bone loss occurs in the bone surrounding and supporting the tooth, known as alveolar bone. Alveolar bone forms the ridges in which the teeth are embedded. These ridges atrophy both vertically and horizontally.
Replacing teeth with full or partial dentures doesn’t solve the problem as the dentures exert a very small amount of chewing pressure on the bone compared to natural teeth, as low as 10% or less visit us for more information on Advanced Gum Treatment at pimple saudagar.
Other causes of bone loss
Bone can be lost through infection that damages the bone.
A large tumor in the face may require removal of the tumor and some of the jaw.
Bone loss and dentures
Bone loss can be prevented by giving the jawbone a replacement tooth with a root that can exert the same or similar pressure as natural teeth. This is done immediately after extraction by replacing single teeth with dental implants, or by using a fixed implant-supported bridge or denture.
A single-tooth implant or a dental bridge with three to four teeth supported by two implants provide a chewing power of 99% of natural bite force. A denture secured with dental implants, such as our Same Day Teeth procedure, provides about 70% to 80% of normal biting force and helps considerably in preventing bone loss. Advanced Gum Treatment
