GUM DISEASE TREATMENT: To stop bleeding gums

Diagnosis, prevention and treatment

Half of the adult population has some degree of gum disease, however the condition is 100% preventable, and in many cases, is reversible with good dental hygiene. Gum disease is categorized by 3 stages:Gingivitis (early stage), Periodontitis, and Advanced Periodontitis. Early signs of gum disease include bleeding, swollen, red or tender gums. As gum disease progresses, pockets form around the teeth and the tissues and ligaments that anchor the teeth to the jaw begin to pull away. Very severe cases of gum disease often require antibiotic treatment for infection, a deep cleaning:, and possible gum surgery (Flap Surgery) to reverse gum recession.

Signs and Symptoms Of Gum Disease

Pockets form between the gums and teeth where bacteria collects and becomes infected. The infection can destroy gum tissue, and even jaw bone

Stages of Gum Disease Progression: Gingivitis vs. Periodontitis

In the very first stages of gum disease, you may notice a little inflammation and bleeding gums, and maybe a foul taste in your mouth. This stage is called gingivitis. It's typically painless, but it's the first step toward a serious infection, and it's the only stage of gum disease that is reversible. If you notice swollen, tender or puffy gums, or that your gums bleed when you brush or floss pay close attention and don't hesitate to your dentist for a screening.

Once gingivitis has progressed to periodontal disease or periodontitis, a more advanced stage of gum disease can cause irreversible damage to the tissue and bone surrounding your teeth.

Tell-tale signs of periodontal disease are gums red or purple in color, receding gums that are pulling back away from the teeth, bad breath, bleeding or swollen gums, pus between the teeth, or loose teeth. At this stage, symptoms can be treated but the disease has now progressed to a chronic condition. If it continues to get worse, it's likely you will lose your teeth unless you pursue aggressive treatment (Gum surgery/Flap Surgery).
