Non Surgical Gum Therapy in Whitby Ontario

Gum disease is one of the most common oral diseases in North America, and if it is unattended it can become very problematic. Gum disease has very few noticeable symptoms when it is first beginning, but it will quickly become gingivitis and even more difficult conditions to treat. You should look for common early signs like bad breath, inflammation, and gums that easily bleed when brushing or flossing. These things happen when there is an excess of plaque accumulation below the gum line, sometime even with proper brushing and flossing. A deep cleaning by your dentist is the best way to compliment your oral routine.

 

If gum disease and gingivitis are allowed to go unchecked, they can develops into periodontitis, which breaks down the underlying tissues that keep your teeth in place when bacteria buildup and decay. At this stage, gum tissues will gradually recede and create pockets between teeth where further bacteria can get trapped and decay. Over time, your gums and bone tissues will break down, ultimately causing your teeth to fall out. Periodontitis is the leading cause of adult tooth loss in North America.

 

Luckily, we can help you to restore and push back gum disease. If you are dealing from moderate or serious gum disease, Dr. Daniel Pesin can treat it with non-surgical gum therapy. This type of restorative therapy uses non-surgical techniques to eliminate the bacteria and toxins that have accumulated above and below the gum line. These could mean a deep cleaning which helps to remove plaque and tartar buildup with fluoride. Other methods include scaling, in which the dentist scrapes away bacteria from the gum tissues. We may also recommend root planing, which smoothes uneven areas on the root surface to avoid buildup. With these non-surgical gum treatments we can restore your gums to good health.
