Gingivitis and periodontal diseases are the main causes of tooth loss, they also increase the risk rate with heart patients and interfere with many general diseases in the body.
Brushing the teeth and using dental floss are the most important factors in dental oral care, and monitoring the gums is an important factor in maintaining its health.
The dentist should be checked immediately if any of the following changes are observed:
- Sensitive, swollen and red gums.
- Undesirable mouth smell at times.
- Pain in the gums.
- Swelling gums.
- Decline and recede of the gums.
- Movement in the teeth.
- Bleeding gums while brushing teeth or using dental floss.
- Bleeding gums when waking up in the morning or when eating in advanced cases.
Removing calculus deposits around the teeth is the first procedure to treat gingivitis and periodontal tissue. In advanced cases, the dentist performs gingival scraping to remove deep deposits under local anesthesia to ensure that the case recovers completely and that the inflammation does not return again.
How can we care and maintain the gums:
- Teeth should be brushed twice daily for a period of no less than two minutes to ensure the best correct oral care.
- Using toothpastes and mouthwashes containing fluorine (prevents tooth decay).
- Using the dental floss because not using it keeps 40% of the tooth surfaces unclean.
- Review the gingival clinic every 6 months to remove calcareous deposits and ensure the health of the gums and teeth.
