Taking Serious Steps To Stop Gingivitis
Posted October 30, 2017 by Wager-Evans Dental
Do you take time during your oral care routine to check for signs of gum disease? Your periodontal tissue may not experience pain when infected, but there are symptoms you can identify. You may find that your gums are more likely to bleed when you brush and floss, or they may appear red or swollen. Gingivitis, the first stage of a periodontal infection, can be successfully treated. In fact, you can receive help from your dentist to target this problem. A Perio Tray will help you provide concentrated care to your gums, so that you can rid yourself of this problem. If you do not respond to the matter, you can face worrying complications, including a higher risk for tooth loss!
A Perio Tray, provided by your dentist, will allow you to directly address an infection in your periodontal tissue. The custom-made tray will allow you to apply an approved solution directly to gingival crevices or periodontal pockets, to aid with recovery. Because the tray is custom made for you, it can be comfortably worn.
If gum disease is allowed to grow more severe, the condition can become more difficult to manage, and ultimately create serious complications. The main reason adults suffer tooth loss later in life is because of periodontitis, or advanced gum disease, which will see the destruction of tissues supporting teeth. If you are attempting to manage your oral health while suffering advanced gum disease, talk to your dentist. They can help you secure the help you need to better manage your smile. If you have already lost teeth, your dentist can recommend prosthetic support, including how you can enjoy advanced support from a dental implant-held prosthetic.
Spotting and treating gingivitis will help you protect your smile against potentially serious issues.
