Gum related Disease and Treatment Jul 29, 2013
Gum disease (Gingivitis) often develops slowly without causing any pain and can begin at just about any age. Sometimes you may not have any symptoms until the disease has advanced and spread to the supporting bone (Periodontitis), causing loss of bone and eventually loss of tooth.

The term gum disease or periodontal disease describes bacterial growth and production of factors that gradually destroys the tissue surrounding and supporting the teeth.
Several warning signs that can signal a gum problem
Bleeding gums
Bad breath
Red swollen and tender gums
Pus discharge
Loose or separating teeth
Gums that have pulled away from the teeth exposing the root

There are various gum treatments :
1) Non surgical Treatment (Scaling, Root planning, Local drug delivery)
2) Periodontal Surgery (pocket reduction procedure and regenerative procedure, soft tissue grafts.)
3) LASER: The periodontist uses a Laser to treat many gum problems thus avoiding a surgery.
4)Cosmetic Gum Surgery
