Gum & Bone Disease:
Chances are that you or a family member have some stage of gum (periodontal)
disease (80% of Americans do). The advanced stage used to be called
pyorrhea. In the past this has been referred to as a disease that
no one could catch from you. However, it is now known that periodontal
disease can be transmitted from one individual to another. If it
is detected in the very early stages, periodontal disease can be
WHAT ARE THE SIGNS?
• Gums that bleed when you brush or floss your teeth
• Red, swollen or tender gums
• Gums that have receded or shrunken away from your teeth
• Pus between your teeth and gums
• A change in your bite
• Bad breath (Halitosis)
Plaque is a colorless film of bacteria that forms on the teeth.
It takes 24 hours for plaque to mature and become harmful. If teeth are not
flossed and brushed, plaque will irritate the gums and cause them to
become red, tender and swollen. If not removed, the plaque will harden
to form calculus (tartar) around the neck of the tooth and under the
gum tissue. Eventually, the tissue that attaches the gums to the teeth
is destroyed by the buildup of plaque. The gums will pull away from the
teeth and small pockets will form between the teeth and gums. These
pockets fill with more plaque eventually causing the jawbone supporting
the teeth to be destroyed. Since this process usually does not cause any
discomfort in the early stages, many people have periodontal disease and
do not know it.
It is now possible to treat many stages of periodontal disease. We remove
the calculus deposits from your teeth with a procedure called “scaling”.
We follow up when needed with medicaments to promote healing. We have
found that we can get very good results with reducing pocket depths.
