What is a gum treatment?

A gum treatment is a dental procedure to treat any infection of the gums and restore a healthy gingiva. The treatment included are oral prophylaxis, curettage, gingivectomy, flap surgeries and many more dental procedures. The choice of treatment depends on the gum infection progress of the patient.

In some cases of gum recession or gingival recession of tooth it leads to sensitivity which can be prevented  by gingival augmentation procedures. Sometimes gum boil or gum abscess appears due to local infiltration of infection.

All gum treatments are done with specialized instruments like ultrasonic scalers, curettes and lasers at our clinic. These advanced instruments don’t cause any pain and enhances the accuracy of the treatment to a large extent.

Why bleeding from gums occurs ?

Gingivitis is a gum disease occurs due to inflammation of gum tissue or gingiva. Bleeding from gums and bad breath, both are a result of gingivitis. When the food particles stick onto the tooth and gums, the bacteria act on it and forms plaque. The plaque, if not cleaned properly, hardens to form calcified deposits known as calculus. These, in turn becomes infected causing the gingiva to bleed. This condition is known as gingivitis. A proper gum treatment can cure it completely. Gum tissue infection cannot be cured naturally at home with out treatment.

What is periodontal flap surgery treatment procedure?

If gum infection  is  not treated,  it can lead to loosening of the teeth caused by the spread of infection into the underlying bones. The condition is known as periodontitis. If it is treated at the 1st stage, only oral prophylaxis is enough to restore a healthy gum. But if it progresses to the 2nd stage, sometimes a minor surgery is needed. This surgery is called as PERIODONTAL FLAP SURGERY.

In periodontal flap surgery, after anaesthetizing the gum tissues, gingival or gum tissue is elevated with elevators and deep granulation tissue is removed with curettes and with advanced lasers. If there is more bone loss artificial bone grafts or gum grafts are placed in defective areas. Finally sutures are placed after surgery. Sutures are removed 1week after surgery.
