Gingivitis Vs. Gum Disease

Gingivitis refers to the initial stage of gum disease, which is reversible with proper periodontal care and oral hygiene. If you get help for gingivitis right away, you will be able to completely eliminate gum disease.

This is not the case with later stages of gum disease, which cause permanent damage to your teeth and gums, and cannot be completely eliminated. After a certain point, the infection becomes too widespread. If you don’t get care in time, you will need to have regular periodontal maintenance for the rest of your life to prevent the disease from causing further damage. 

Recognizing Gum Disease

The signs and symptoms of gum disease vary based on the progression of the disease. Gingivitis, the first stage of the disease, usually has relatively minor symptoms such as bleeding when brushing and flossing, puffy and swollen gums, gum discoloration, and soft or “spongy” gums. Halitosis (bad breath) may also be present.

As the disease progresses, these symptoms worsen. Your gums may pull away from your teeth, making them look longer. Your teeth will become more sensitive to heat, cold, and pressure. Your gums may bleed for no reason, and your teeth may loosen or fit together differently. If you notice any of these symptoms, come in for an appointment at Jackson Family Dentistry right away.

Scaling & Root Planing (Deep Cleanings) 

Deep cleanings are the first line of defense against periodontal disease. This treatment involves using special dental tools to remove plaque, tartar and bacteria from between your gums and teeth. In addition, the roots of your teeth will be smoothed to help prevent bacterial buildup.

One side of your mouth can be treated at a time, so deep cleanings usually take two appointments. They are usually done under local anesthesia to keep you comfortable. Dr. Major will also typically prescribe oral antibiotics or an antibacterial mouthwash to help eliminate the bacteria which cause gum disease.
